PARIS — Monaco says it won’t organize a trip for its fans to travel to Turkish side Besiktas when the clubs meet in the Champions League in November.

Monaco says the French body in charge of the fight against hooliganism has advised the club against bringing supporters to Istanbul.

Besiktas will be hosting Monaco on Nov. 1 in Group G of the Champions League.

Monaco says it won’t ask Besiktas to open the away fans area in the stadium and asked its fans not to travel on their own.
