Porto vs Besiktas
UEFA Champions League Group-stage – Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 13th September 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao.
Porto continued their dream run at the start of the new Primeira Liga campaign as they picked up fifth straight win on Sunday when they saw off Chaves 3-0 in front of their fans.
Azuis e Brancos will be hoping to build on these fine displays from the domestic competition on Wednesday when they are set to begin their Champions League journey with the home fixture against Turkish champions Besiktas at Estadio Do Dragao.
Sergio Conceicao can be thrilled with the kick off to the new season, especially with the performances his men showed on the home patch.
Porto demolished Estoril, Moreirense and Chaves keeping the perfect record at Estadio Do Dragao with the goal differential of 11-0 during the run.
Kara Kartallar will also come into the game in high spirits after snatching an important three-pointer on Saturday evening when they took a narrow 0-1 victory from the visit to Karabukspor.
The visitors share the top of the standings with Galatasaray (teams sit at ten points each) after four opening rounds of Super Lig.
Porto vs Besiktas: Head to head
The Portuguese outfit has been much more successful in the history of head to head meetings with Besiktas.
The two sides took on each other five times over the history and the hosts took three wins and two draws with the total goal differential of 7-2.
Porto vs Besiktas: Prediction
Only one of previous five H2H encounters between the two teams ended with three or more goals.
Looking at Porto’s impressive defensive shape at the start of the season and the importance of the Champions League group phase opener, we just can’t see a high-scoring affair here either.
