FC Porto :
Last year, the Portuguese reached the round of the last 16 and lost to the final finalists Juventus (0: 2, 0: 1). Interestingly, they have been able to play in a kind of rhythm during the last seven years. So it means that they have alternated the group phase times and exited prematurely. After 15/16 the out in the group stage, followed in the last season for example the move into the round of the last 16. Since summer, Sergio Conceicao has been training the team. The 42-year-old former professional wants to win the club again after Porto became only runner-up last season. Their start to the season is promising, because on the first five game days there were also five straight wins. Beside three home races over Estoril (4-0), Moreirense (3-0) and GD Chaves (3-0), there were also away wins in Tondela (1: 0) and Braga (1: 0). Striking: In all five games of Porto stood behind the zero.
As usual, they have many millions this season. Sales of André Silva (AC Milan), Rúben Neves (Wolves), Bruno Martins Indi (Stoke City), Laurent Depoitre (Huddersfield) and Andres Fernandez (Villarreal) accounted for € 69.60 million. Great expenses remained. With Oliver Torres (Atletico Madrid) and Vaná Alves (CD Feirense) only two players were committed outside the club, otherwise there were only reinforcements from the second team. Their current top scorer is Vincent Aboubakar – the Cameroonian played at Besiktas Istanbul last season, so it will certainly be a special encounter for him.
The 15-time Turkish champion Besiktas Istanbul is hoping to overcome the group stage this season. Last season they reached the quarter-finals in the Europa League and failed to beat Olympique Lyon. The past season, however, has proved that the “Black eagles” have taken the next step internationally. However, there were still a few issues left for players like Gary Medel (Inter Milan), Alvaro Negredo (Valencia), Jeremain Lens (Sunderland) Pepe (Real Madrid) and Orkan Cinar (Gaziantepspor). However, Andreas Beck (Stuttgart), Marcelo (Lyon), Gökhan Inler (Basaksehir) and Rhodolfo (Flamengo) have left the club.
In the Süper Lig, the reigning Turkish champions made a good start to the season and recorded ten points in four games. Apart from two home legs against Antalya (2-0) and Bursaspor (2-1), there was a 2-2 win at Kasimpasa and a 1-0 in Karabük. Coach Senol Günes has to do without Gökhan Göre, Gökhan Gönül and Atinc Nukan in Portugal, otherwise all the players are at his disposal.
