RB Leipzig will play the second game in the Champions League against Turkish side Besiktas in Istanbul. This will be the first time in the history of the club that the German side will play away from in the Champions League and as a result, I am expecting all the players to be very excited for this game.
Besiktas are a good side and although they are coming off a loss against their cross-town rival, Fenerbahce, they will still be ready for this game. The Turkish side beat Porto in the first round of matches in the Champions League and with that win under their belt, they will be full of confidence heading into this game.
That being said, RB Leipzig is an entirely different kind of beast. The German side have some of the most talented young players in the world with the likes of Naby Keita, Emil Forsberg and Timo Werner lining up for them. This side seemed a little nervous in their previous game and that is understandable considering it was their first game in this competition. This time around, I think that RB Leipzig will put up a much better performance. This side is much more talented on paper and I think they will show that this game.
I think that RB Leipzig will win this game and as a result, I think betting on that is the best option for this game. We are getting a great price on this bet and it makes a lot of sense to take it. In addition to this, I am also expecting a high scoring game so the over 2.5 goals is also a bet that I like for this game.
