Porto Cruised through Their Group

Porto took advantage of their easier group by winning five of six unbeaten matches to finish top.

They did the double over Lokomotiv Moscow and Galatasaray as their biggest competition came from Schalke, who find themselves way down Germany’s top division in 14th place, and so they’ll know their hosts here are likely to provide a step up from those challengers.

Roma Getting Back To Form

Roma only finished second in their group but with the current three-time consecutive champions Real Madrid finishing above them, we can forgive them for that.

They beat Chievo 3-0 on the road last time out, while they’ve been very impressive at the Stadio Olimpico this term with nine wins from their last 13 matches in all competitions.

Only SPAL back in October and the aforementioned Madrid in November could get the better of them there, as each of the victories saw them net at least three times, while their other games in Europe saw them put five goals past Viktoria Plzen and three past CSKA Moscow.

Porto Top Of Their Domestic League

Porto have been dominating the majority of their fellow Portuguese sides but with the standard of opposition much lower than that of Serie A, we’d prefer to look at their form against the other ‘Big Three’ Portuguese clubs – Sporting and Benfica.

Indeed, they’ve earned just one point from their two matches this season in the league, which isn’t great, while they’ve failed to win either of their last two road trips against Vitoria Guimaraes and Moreirense. In fact, the ‘Big Three’ Portuguese clubs have fared terribly in Italy this century too, losing 13 of 16 winless European matches, including all nine in the Champions League.

Moreover, Sergio Conceicao will be without Moussa Marega for this clash, with the striker their top scorer in Europe this season, making an important contribution as he’s netted in each of their last five matches in this competition.

Roma v Porto Betting Tips

Given the high-scoring nature of the Italian side on home turf this season we want to get behind them in the goalscorer market too.

Edin Dzeko has been the main marksmen for them in the Champions League with five goals from his four Champions League matches this term, while he’s been their top scorer in European competition for each of their past two seasons.

Moreover, following a barren spell, he’s been back amongst the goals with three in as many league outings and looks a big price back in his favourite competition.
