Our football match prediction:
Napoli will be looking to get their revenge on Besiktas for a 3-2 loss at Stadio San Paolo when the two teams face each other in Istanbul on Tuesday evening. The Turks, on the other, aim to climb to top position in Group B, but it remains to be seen if they are capable of beating the Partenopei in the reverse fixture. Napoli attacker Arkadiusz Milik remains in the recovery room and we predict that the Polish footballer is going to be sorely missed in Tuesday’s football match. Besiktas are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that Napoli often struggle on the road, home win appears on the horizon. Vincent Aboubakar impressed in the 3-2 win over Napoli at Stadio San Paolo and the former Porto attacker will be the man to watch in the home team in Tuesday’s Champions League clash.
