Porto vs Galatasaray
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao (Porto).

Porto and Galatasaray are going to face each other in the Wednesday’s evening clash of the second round in the Champions League group stage.

Home side managed to get back home with a point from the opening round of the competition as they managed to materialize one of the two penalty kicks against Schalke. Although this group is probably the least attractive in this edition of the Champions League, the fact is that all four teams can hope of proceeding further.

Moussa Marega and the lads haven’t tasted a defeat in the last five occasions and they want to keep the run going. Porto are the most efficient side in the Primeira Liga, however they are a point behind Braga who are sitting on the top spot.

Turkish champions have been very convincing in the opening round as they’ve celebrated a 3-0 victory over Lokomotiv Moscow. They are also sitting on the top of the Turkish Super Lig, however they’ve already suffered two defeats in seven matches.

Fatih Terim’s side has been very good in front of the oppositions’ goal, however they would need to improve their defending. Although this is going to be a real challenge for the visitors, they are going to search for a positive result in this one.

Porto vs Galatasaray: Head-to-head

These two sides faced each other only once in the match of the Emirates Cup, a friendly tournament played five years ago. In their only encounter, Galatasaray managed to snatch a narrow 1-0 victory.

Porto vs Galatasaray: Prediction

This is going to be a very tight clash and a very hard one to predict. However, the hosts should have slight advantage, they’ve been more constant lately and all three points should remain at Estadio Do Dragao.

Porto have been playing pretty disciplined this season and they’ve been fairly tight in the back. They are going to dictate the tempo of this match ant as a consequence the crowd shouldn’t be able to enjoy more than two goals in this one.
