90+3' 

It's full time but Keita had a wonderful chance to win it late on.

He got free in the box on the left and went to curl it into the far corner but instead he found Fabri.

Stay tuned to Eurosport for all the reaction and live coverage of the late games.

90' 

Then Quaresma gets a chance to win the game but his shot is blocked at the last minute by Moutinho, great challenge.

89' 

Quaresma goes into the book for taking a swipe at Raggi. I tell you what that's a dangerous challenge. He's lucky that's only yellow.

88' 

Great late chance for Monaco to win the game as a free-kick is floated over.

Carrillo with the header and Fabri holds it.

84' 

Terrific defending from Pepe keeps Monaco at bay. Keita was convinced he had scored.

83' 

Fairly offensive change from Monaco as Talisca comes on for Hutchinson.

80' 

Waste from Babel as he charges towards goal.

He just holds on to it for far too long when he cuts inside and if he's not going to shoot he's got to pass.

75' 

Off the line!

Raggi gets his head on a corner but it's cleared off the line by the captain Ozyakup.

74' 

Change for MOnaco now as Tielemans comes off and Carrillo comes on.

Meanwhile Tolgay is coming off with a knock with Mitrovic coming on.

73' 

Monaco trying to put some pressure on Besiktas with a series of set-pieces.

Nothing comes of them though.

Tosic is now into the book.

He did get the ball with his trailing leg but at that stage he had already taken out Lopes.

64' 

And there you have it. A long ball over the top is partially dealt with by Tosic and Keita is nearly in. However Fabri comes out really well and takes it away from him.

61' 

Around 30 minutes to go here and Besiktas probably look the more likely to get the winner. However Monaco will be dangerous on the break.

58' 

HOW HAS THAT NOT GONE IN?

A ball slipped through ends up going to Babel. He rounds Subasic but runs into defenders. It falls to Quaresma and whilst he's under pressure he's also got an open goal to aim at, and sends it over.

57' 

The volume has cranked up a notch again. The home fans clearly believe they can go on and win this.

PENALTY BESIKTAS!

Tielemans loses the ball and the ball is played through to Quaresma. He chops back onto his left and Jorge takes him out in the box. The Brazilian is booked.

51' 

The free-kick from Quaresma is poor and it's easily cleared.

Elsewhere Lemar has a should injury and is likely to miss the game at the weekend.

50' 

Free-kick to Besiktas with Pepe down the floor writhing around. Jovetic is the offender for maybe grabbing Pepe when jostling for the ball. It feels like he made the most of that.

48' 

First chance of the half as a corner is flicked on and then Tosun goes for the over-head.

The referee has blow his whistle and it's unclear whether that's for offside or dangerous play. I think it's offside.

46' 

Welcome back.

No changes to tell you about for either side.

 
Monaco's Portuguese midfielder Rony Lopes (C) celebrates after scoring a goal during the UEFA Champions League Group G football match between Besiktas and Monaco on November 1, 2017, at the Vodafone Park in Istanbul.
45+2' 

Chance at the end of the half for Besiktas as Pepe heads over having charged ove.r

And that's half-time. All the pressure on Besiktas now.

GOAL! BESIKTAS 0-1 MONACO (LOPES)

And Monaco lead! That could be a vital goal for last season's semi-finalists.

Lopes picks the ball up just outside the box and he curls the ball into the goal with his left foot. Lovely finish.

44' 

Gonul, who seems to be okay, powers into the box but drags his shot wide.

42' 

The ball is in the net for Besiktas but the flag was up early for Tosun.

41' 

That's a waste. Ozyakup is played in behind on the right with all the time and space in the world. A clever dummy sells one defender but his cross is still blocked.

40' 

Quaresma comes inside from the right and he has a go with the inside of his boot.

It's straight at Subasic.

38' 

A corner from Moutinho is flicked on and nearly finds Raggi at the back post but Besiktas just about clear. The French side are ending the half well.

37' 

CHANCE!

Jovetic does well on the left to get in behind and then squares it across goal. Lopes tries to turn it in but a combination of Fabri and the defender get it away.

36' 

Problems for Gonul now. He's been down for a minute or so following a tackle on Keita. It seems to be a knee issue.

34' 

And just as I say that Quaresma knocks it through Fabinho's legs and the Monaco man has no option but to take him down. Perhaps lucky not to be booked.

33' 

Monaco have come back into this match really well. Fabinho is having a great game and the defenders are holding Tosun. For now.

30' 

First involvement for Jovetic since coming on as he tries to get a shot away, it's blocked well by Pepe.

28' 

Quaresma floats the free-kick into the six-yard box but Monaco have a free-kick as the referee calls it back for an offside against Pepe.

Effort from Tosun is blocked and then Tolgay becomes the first player into the book for a foul on Tielemans.

22' 

Good defending from Monaco as Quaresma gets down the right and sends in another dangerous delivery. Babel picks it up but gets tackled just before he shoots and Ozyakup suffers the same fate. Monaco hanging in there.

 
Besiktas' Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup (L) vies with Monaco's Brazilian defender Fabinho (R) during the UEFA Champions League Group G football match between Besiktas and Monaco on November 1, 2017, at the Vodafone Park in Istanbul.
19' 

More whistling as Quaresma is taking down by Jorge after flicking the ball past him.

He gets up and receives the ball form the free-kick, sending in a dangerous ball from the right. It eludes both Babel and Tosun. But only just.

17' 

Lemar goes on a weaving run and eventually gets brought down. It's a fair tackle though.

Down the other end Besiktas fans are furious as Tosun is penalised for a foul on Glik.

15'

SAVE!

And they force Fabri into a good save! It's a good ball in from Lemar and it's flicked towards goal by Tielemans.

Fabri does well to parry it away.

14' 

Now Monaco win a corner. Chance for them with the likes of Glik up from the back.

13' 

Now Lemar is down having collided with Hutchinson.

Like Lopes he doesn't get up quickly but he's okay.

12' 

Lopes looks to try and burst forward but Adriano puts in a crunching challenge to stop him. It takes a while for Lopes to get back up but he'll be okay.

11' 

Monaco's tactics are clear here. They want to try and catch Besiktas on the break. Keita will be crucial.

9' 

More showboating as Ozyakup nearly gets in when he plays a one-two with Tosun.

Tosun's back-heel was intercepted.

8' 

Now a free-kick for Besiktas following a handball by Moutinho. The delivery is cleared.

7' 

Lovely flowing move from Besiktas as they play out from the back.

A wonderful inter-change of passes ends with Gonul's cross being cleared.

Tosun then tries to get in but he gives away a corner.

5' 

I know I've mentioned it already but the atmosphere in this stadium is truly remarkable. Without a doubt one of the best in Europe.

3' 

Monaco's first break forward is called back for offside.

2' 

The corner is cleared by Raggi but Tosic nearly gets a header away at goal when the ball is sent back in. Quaresma's corner from the other side is cleared.

1' 

And we are under way.

Besiktas in their white and black Monaco in red and white.

Great early pressure from Besiktsa to force a corner in the first minute.

The noise in the stadium is absolutely incredible.

 

Right we're around five minutes away from kick-off.

What are your predictions for this one?

 

And who could forget the sound of the summer.

 

The Besiktas fans are pretty noisy...

 

AS IT STANDS

Here's a reminder of how things stand in Group G.

Besiktas are in total control whereas Monaco need a win to keep their hopes alive.

Champions League Group G
 

MONACO LINE-UP

Subasic, Raggi, Jemerson, Glik, Jorge, Moutinho, Fabinho, Tielemans, Lemar, Keita, Lopes.

No change from the weekend for Monaco.

 

BESIKTAS TEAM

Fabri, Gonul, Pepe, Tosic, Adriano, Hutchinson, Tolgay, Quaresma, Ozyakup, Babel, Tosun

Just one change for Besiktas from the weekend as Anderson Talisca drops out and Tolgay Arslan comes in to add a bit more solidity.

It's a very strong team even if they are only third in the table.

 

Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of Monaco's trip to Besiktas in the early Champions League game.
