RB Leipzig have predictably improved throughout their first Champions League campaign and are fancied to finish off with a win over Besiktas in Germany.
The hosts may have left it too late to qualify, as they need to pick up more points than Porto manage at home to Monaco if they are to progress alongside this week’s opponents.
However, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have been strong at Red Bull Arena this term, both in Europe and the Bundesliga, and can account for a Besiktas team safely through in top spot.
A Look At RB Leipzig’s Betting Odds
Leipzig certainly got off to a fast start when prevailing 4-1 at Monaco a fortnight ago, racing into a 3-0 lead after just over half an hour of action.
That performance followed two entertaining encounters with Porto, including a 3-2 victory at this venue when all the goals came before the break.
The Bulls have also rattled off four straight Bundesliga wins on home turf, with Naby Keita putting his disciplinary problems behind him and starting to show why Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign the midfielder.
A Look At Besiktas’ Betting Odds
Besiktas exceeded all expectations when opening their campaign with a hat-trick of victories and have done enough since to guarantee they finish top of this pool.
A couple of home draws with Monaco and Porto suggest their form may have plateaued, but it must be noted they did still look dangerous going forward throughout those 1-1 stalemates.
The significant point here, though, is that Senol Gunes can afford to rest players if he wishes, and we’re expecting that to happen in between a big 3-0 triumph over Galatasaray and Sunday’s tricky trip to Kayserispor.
