On the other hand, Besiktas made a perfect start to their Champions League campaign with back-to-back wins. They defeated Leipzig 2-0 at home on matchday 2 after bagging a priceless 3-1 away win at Porto. They sit at the top of the table with a 3-point cushion over second placed Porto.

Monaco’s current form is nowhere near what it used to be in previous seasons. They are coming on the back of a three-match win-less streak. Moreover, the team managed just 2 wins from their last 7 in all competition. On the weekend, they lost 3-2 to domestic rivals Lyon.

Despite having a strong run in the Champions League, Besiktas are struggling off late in the Turkish Super League. They haven’t won in the last three with the most recent a 2-1 loss to Genclerbirligi.

Monaco vs Besiktas: Head-to-head

The teams are meeting for the first time in a UEFA competition.

Monaco’s record against Turkish teams is 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses from 8 matches. At home, they won 3 of the 4 fixtures and lost 1.

Besiktas had lost in all their previous 4 away matches against French clubs. Their overall record in 8 matches is 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses.

Monaco vs Besiktas: Prediction

Monaco are expected to have their tails up here as three points are at stake to stay in the qualification race.

It is easy to mislead by the early surge by Besiktas. But truth to be told, they do lack the consistency to pick wins against quality sides.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-0 Monaco for 12.00 odds.
