Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Sukru Saracoglu Stadyumu in Istanbul when Fenerbahce and Monaco take on each other in the Champions League third qualifying round, first leg. The match will be played following the coup attempt by an army fraction in Turkey and no doubt the security for Wednesday’s football match will be at extremely high standard. Fenerbahce are a real force to be reckoned with at home and that is the main reason why they are considered favourites to win the first leg. Monaco often struggle on the travels and despite the fact that les Rouges et Blancs were producing fine displays in the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in the first leg. A man to watch in the home team will be former Arsenal and Manchester United forward Robin van Persie, who is certainly capable of posing a big threat for the opposition defenders.
