Besiktas 5/4 to beat Monaco in Wednesday’s Champions League game
Competition: Champions League
Market: Besiktas to beat Monaco
Odds: 5/4 @ 888sport
The Champions League is back this week with a glut of important games that will shape the competition for the year to come. Every side, whether at the top of the group or the bottom, will want to claim a win with three points often the difference between progression to the knock-out rounds, and falling at the group stage. One side that has been something of a surprise package is Besiktas, and they face Monaco on Wednesday.
For Besiktas, it doesn’t get any better than sitting at the top of the group unbeaten. Three wins from three is a superb record, while they have looked very good going forward by scoring seven goals, and equally solid at the back by only being breached twice. They currently have a six-point cushion between themselves and third-placed Porto, meaning a win today could see qualification for the latter stages of the competition secured.
Monaco, on the other hand, have been awful this year. One draw and two defeats has seen the Ligue 1 side to the bottom of their group, and they are eight points adrift of their next opponents. While a win on Wednesday seems unlikely considering their form, it would allow them to claw back a large amount of ground, which would set them up nicely in what would likely be a winner takes all game with RB Leipzig, therefore, a win is vital on Wednesday. However, Besiktas have looked good this season and they are formidable at home, and 888sport are giving them odds of 5/4 to beat Monaco.
