Besikta Vs Monaco
Besiktas have been playing above expectations in the group stages of the 2017/2018 Champions League campaign. The Turkish club have already defeated their rivals in Group G Leipzig, Porto and Monao and they are on the right track to make it to the knockout stages. Senol Gunes’ men aim to keep their 100% record intact, but recording back-to-back wins over Monaco is easier said than done. Les Rouges et Blancs kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 1-1 draw against Leipzig, but they failed to impress in previous two group games against Porto (0-3) and Besiktas (1-2). Leonardo Jardim’s men have been struggling in the elite competition this season and key player from the last season Kylian Mbappe has been sorely missed. Besiktas have been in a much better form of late than Monaco and we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match.
My Verdict: Besikta 2 : 1 Monaco
Bor Dortmund Vs Apoel
Borussia Dortmund failed to turn their dominance into more than one goal in a 1-1 draw with APOEL in Nicosia and, as a result, they face a must-win situation in Wednesday’s football match against the Cypriot champions. The Millionaires are eyeing their first win of the process and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at APOEL when the two teams face each other at Signal-Iduna-Park. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to score in the 1-1 draw with APOEL at Neo GSP, but he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders this time out. Giorgios Dionis’ men were more than fortunate to share the spoils with Borussia Dortmund in Cyrpus, but we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Millionaires’ party at Signal-Iduna-Park. It has to be noted that APOEL failed to score in previous three away games in the elite competition and we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed.
My Verdict: Bor Dortmund 3 : 0 Apoel
Porto Vs Leipzig
Estadio Do Dragao will host Wednesday’s football game between Porto and Leipzig. Porto experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 loss to Leipzig, but a win over the Bundesliga side would see them regain their spot in top two in Group G. The Dragons have been impressive at home ground in the Primeira Liga this term and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Leipzig. The Red Bulls have been producing fine displays in all competitions this season, but considering that they often struggle on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on Sergio Conceicao’s troops this time out. Vincent Aboubakar has found his goal-scoring touch of late and the Cameroon international will be the man to watch in the home team and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line.
My Verdict: Porto 2 : 1 Leipzig
