FC Porto – Besiktas: 13th September 2017
With Sergio Conceicao on the technical bench, the “Dragons” even could not dream of a better season start. With five victories in as many stages, they are the first in the championship to score points with the rival Sporting. But, moreover, Porto has not received a goal so far, being the only Portuguese team with this performance. On the weekend that passed, Aboubakar, Soares and Marega have once again made their debut in the victory with Chaves, score 3-0. Returning this summer after being loaned to Besiktas in the previous season, Vincent Aboubakar scored 5 goals in as many games. Thus, being suspended for Wednesday’s confrontation, his absence could be felt in the game.
On the other side, guests come after a victory. In the move from Karabukspor, they were forced to the limit by a score of 1-0. The only goal of the game was scored by R.Babel in the 79th minute. Thus, with 10 points accumulated after the first four stages, “Vulturii” occupied the second position in the ranking of points with Galatasaray, which has a higher golaveraj. With high morale, they are moving to Estadio do Dragao hoping to get a new positive result. For Senol Gunes’s band, Gokhan Gonul and Adriano may be missing (you doubt). Instead, most likely, Porto’s former player, Ricardo Quaresma, will start the title on the right. Besiktas scored at least one goal in each game of the current season.
