FC Porto – Besiktas Predictions (13.09.2017)


FC Porto - Besiktas Predictions

In the first round of Group G of the Champions League, FC Porto and Besiktas are fighting at the Estádio do Dragão in the unbeaten city. Monaco and Leipzig complete this group, which is considered one of the most competitive of this stage of the race, because any team can move on or get in the way. Playing at home, the Portuguese emblem is favorite, but will face the two-time Turkish champion, who last year reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League, only being eliminated in the penaltys. This will be the return of Ricardo Quaresma to a house he knows well and where he is idolized. Porto and Besiktas are making a good start of the season and both have an average of more than 2 goals scored per game. We expect an intense challenge, minimally balanced, with the blues and whites taking more possession, but with the Turks launching poisonous counterattacks and quick attacks, and may even surprise the defense. The dragons have invested more offensively than ever before, now that Sérgio Conceição is the main coach. A very interesting challenge not to be missed in this Champions League! Porto have scored 6 goals in their last 3 European games at Estádio do Dragão. The blues and whites have assumed an offensive game style and have averaged over 2 goals per game. The dragons have 21 goals billed in their 7 most recent clashes. Besiktas have dominated the Turkish championship and average more than 2 goals scored by clash. The Turks scored 1 goal or more in all their last 21 duels.
