Black Eagles look to overcome dramatic Fenerbahce defeat, maintain lead in Champions League Group G

News Service AA

Turkey's Beşiktaş will take on Germany's RB Leipzig at home on Wednesday night in a UEFA Champions League Group G clash.

Undefeated in their last nine home games in Europe, the Black Eagles are looking to continue their positive start to the campaign.

Having defeated Porto 3-1 away in the first group match two weeks ago, Beşiktaş currently lead Group G. Monaco and RB Leipzig drew 1-1.

Beşiktaş will only miss Gokhan Gonul to injury before tonight’s game; there are no suspended players for the Istanbul side.

RB Leipzig, playing their first European away match, also brought a near-full team to Istanbul Vodafone Park, with Kevin Kampl the only injury doubt.

Beşiktaş will also look to end their poor record against German teams; having lost six and drawn one against German opposition.

The Istanbul side drew all three home matches in last season's Champions League group stage; tonight's match will be their first against German opposition since 2009.
