Porto set to brush aside Turkish champions

Porto coach Sergio Conceicao
1 of 1

Group G
BT Sport Extra, 7.45pm Wednesday

Porto have won their opening five league games without conceding and Turkish champions Besiktas may find it just as tough to unlock Sergio Conceicao's stubborn defence.

Hopes are high for Porto in their bid to end a four-year trophy drought and new gaffer Conceicao, who worked wonders in his short stint at Nantes, could be the man to guide them to success.

Group E-H best bets


And although winning the Champions League looks beyond the Portuguese hosts - the departure of Andre Silva to Milan and Ruben Neves to Wolves doesn't help their cause - they are still one of the stronger sides in Group G

Besiktas have failed to qualify from the group stages in six attempts and they shipped nine goals in their three road matches in last season's competition, while Porto overcame Club Brugge (1-0) and Leicester (5-0) on home soil.
