RB Leipzig Preview – Can Leipzig build on promising start?

RB Leipzig captured a fourth win in five matches in all competitions in last weekend’s 2-0 win away from home at Augsburg in the Bundesliga which has helped Tuesday’s hosts up into the early spot of the German top flight prior to their midweek Champions League tie against Istanbul Basaksehir.

A German cup win over Nurnberg 3-0 away has been followed by victories in the Bundesliga over Mainz 3-1, Schalke 4-0 and the aforementioned 2-0 win at Augsburg, so RB Leipzig will be in confident mood as they prepare for this opening match in Group H.

Leipzig’s Champions League dream last season was shattered by French champions, PSG, as they dished out a 3-0 loss to the German outfit, but before that defeat, Leipzig had previously put together a decent looking seven-match unbeaten record in this elite European competition.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Istanbul Basaksehir Preview – Can Basaksehir make most of distraction?

Having managed to collect just one win from their opening five matches of the new Turkish Super Lig season, Tuesday’s visitors, Istanbul Basaksehir, may well welcome the change of scenery as they prepare for their opening match in Group H away at RB Leipzig.

Three defeats on the trot wasn’t part of Basaksehir or manager, Okan Buruk’s, plans as they lurched to defeats against Hatayspor, Galatasaray and Fatih Karagumruk, handing the visitors a nightmare start to the new domestic top flight campaign.

A 0-0 draw with Goztepe followed by a 2-0 win away from home at Trabzonspor have helped steady the ship somewhat but their pedigree at Champions League level is limited and they’ve managed to win just one of their six ties overall, while on the road, Basaksehir have yet to register a win.
