Besiktas have been nothing short of superb in the Champions League and can maintain the momentum by doing the double over last season’s semi-finalists Monaco.
Few would have backed the Turkish outfit to progress from what looked a rock-solid Group G but they sit five points clear at the top of the table following three straight wins.
The visitors have a mountain to climb after picking up just one point so far and may not have the stomach for such a battle.
We reckon 6/5 for the Black Eagles to oblige again is more than generous enough to feature in our Besiktas vs Monaco betting predictions.
A Look At Besiktas’ Betting Odds
Former Liverpool striker Ryan Babel was on target in both matches as Besiktas opened their campaign with a 3-1 win at Porto and a 2-0 defeat of RB Leipzig in Istanbul.
Those games went pretty much to plan from the outset but the Turkish title holders had to soak up plenty of early pressure at Stade Louis II before coming from behind to prevail 2-1, so they do not lack resolve.
Cenk Tosun has been linked with plenty of Premier League clubs and it was easy to see why as he bagged a double while only a fine save from Daniel Subasic stopped Tolgay Arslan from adding a third.
Besiktas have been far from convincing on the domestic front of late but they are playing with great confidence and self-belief in this competition.
Looking at the Besiktas vs Monaco odds, 9/10 for the hosts to score at least twice again looks a gift.
A Look At AS Monaco’s Betting Odds
Monaco started the season well but are clearly now missing Kylian Mbappe, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko, with cheaper replacements not ready to plug those big holes.
An opening 1-1 draw at RB Leipzig in this pool was encouraging enough but we wonder how much ambition they have left after losing 3-0 at home to Porto and then succumbing to Besiktas.
Leonardo Jardim admitted his youthful outfit “fell off a bit after their second goal” when beaten by Besiktas and some patchy Ligue 1 results of late will have done little to boost their fragile morale.
Colombia legend Radamel Falcao still remains a threat, though, scoring 16 times in 17 appearances for club and country this term.
His presence alone tempts us to include 13/5 for a home win and both teams to score in our Besiktas vs Monaco betting tips.
Last Champions League result:
