£45m Liverpool signing a doubt for Champions League clash against Besiktas

Red Bull Leipzig take on Besiktas in the Champions League Group G Match Day 2 clash at the Vodafone Arena on Tuesday 26 September.

The Bundesliga outfit could be without star man Naby Keita who missed the weekend game versus Frankfurt due to suspension.

Keita is not suspended for the Besiktas game but could be sidelined with injury.

“Naby did not train with the team this week, he has a thigh injury and I do not know whether he will make the Besiktas clash,” Hasenhuttl was quoted as saying on the official Bundesliga website.

“Even if he does not start I do want to have him on the bench.” 

Leipzig are also missing Kevin Kampl with a knee injury heading into their second Champions League game.

Besiktas won their opening Champions League clash away to Porto 3-2 – becoming the first Turkish side to beat the Portuguese giants in European competition.

The Eagles have never beaten German opposition in European competition.
