Captain Options

Besiktas are yet to concede a goal this year but if there’s one man who can break their defence it’s Erling Haaland. He already has five goals and three assists in four games this season.

Marco Reus could be pivotal for the away side. He will start just behind the two strikers in the hole. He has one league goal and an assist in four games.

Differential Pick

Michy Batshuayi didn’t quite cut it at Chelsea but he can thrive in the Turkish League. He will be crucial for his side’s chances in this game. He has two goals from three games this season.

Likely Winner:

  • In the UEFA Champions League, Borussia Dortmund has a perfect record against Turkish opponents (4/4), with all four of their previous games coming against Galatasaray.
  • Besiktas has only won two of its 11 European encounters with German teams (D1 L8), although both of those triumphs occurred in the last event in which they were in the same group as a German team, defeating RB Leipzig twice in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League.
  • Dortmund and Besiktas have only met once in European play, with BVB winning both home and away in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup first round in 1989.
  • Michy Batshuayi, a Besiktas striker on loan from Chelsea, scored nine goals in 14 appearances for Dortmund in the second part of the 2017/18 season.
  • We are predicting a narrow win for the German side.

Besiktas: 49/10
Borussia Dortmund: 5/8
