Istanbul Basaksehir hosts RB Leipzig in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, December 2nd at Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium (Istanbul)
Theoretically, Istanbul can still not only compete for a place in the Europa League but also even reach the playoffs of the Champions League. Now the team is the last in the group with three points, but Leipzig and PSG have only three points more. However, all these chances will remain theoretical since the Turks will not manage to knock out the finalist of the last Champions League from the tournament. They lost to the French even at home (4-0). However, they managed to beat the leader of the group, Manchester United (2-1). In general, Basaksehir has been showing scoring football lately. It scored and conceded from everyone in a row in the last seven matches.

I have already spoken about Leipzig's position above. By the way, the Germans reached the semifinals in the last Champions League but lost to PSG. Most likely, this time they will not move the French from the second line. And they may remain even without the Europa League in the event of a loss in the upcoming match. The Bulls are not impressive on the road. They could not win in the last four away games and lost three of them. And they conceded at least one goal in seven of the last ten matches played outside the Red Bull Arena.
Basaksehir failed to score in only three of the last 20 home matches, but Galatasaray and PSG were its rivals in two of them. It is unlikely that Leipzig will become the fourth team that the Turks will not be able to upset with a goal conceded. They have rather skilled performers in the attacking line. However, the hosts will not be able to keep a clean sheet. The Germans scored in eight of the last eleven away games. At home, they hit the net of goalkeeper Gunok twice, and they will probably score this time too. Goal exchange in this situation is one of the most promising options for a winning bet.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
