FC Porto vs Bayer Leverkusen 
Europe – Champions League 
Date: Tuesday, 4 October 2022 
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET 
Venue: Estádio do Dragão. 

Leverkusen started their European campaign on a poor note, as they lost against toppers Club Brugge. But they did manage to make a comeback with a win against Atletico Madrid. And now they will be determined to keep the streak going with a victory against the struggling Porto, who are placed bottom-most in the table. 

Porto have a 100% losing record so far in the CL, and let in the most number of goals in the group, as well as scored the least. In fact, they were able to find the back of the net just once so far in the competition. 

They are under severe pressure, as each passing match-day, their chances to make it to the knockouts reduce. 

They will have to go for the win at any cost this Tuesday, since a draw would not be of much use to them. 

And this would force them to take risks, and as has been the case so far for them, this would lead to them making even more mistakes. 

Meanwhile, Leverkusen scored the most in the group, and conceded the least – with the obvious exception of toppers Club Brugge. 

They are also high on confidence after their win against Spanish titans Atleti. They are finding the back of the net consistently lately, and most importantly they have a superb h2h record against this rival over the years. 

For the reasons, expect a win for Bayer Leverkusen this Tuesday.
