FC Porto vs Manchester City
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 1 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Dragão.
Pep Guardiola’s men are dead set on making amends for all their mishaps in the UCL in the last few years. They will not let another near miss to occur at any cost, and have prioritized this title even more than the PL.
As of now, they are at the top of the table of Group C, and have raced to the pinnacle in style as well. They have won all of their games, have scored the most number of goals, and have conceded the least as well. (In fact, they have let in a total of just one goal all through their campaign).
This Tuesday, they take on the second-placed Dragons, who are lagging by just three points. And with just two match-days remaining, a win at the Estádio do Dragão will confirm the Citizens as Group Champions.
Considering that they are one of the best teams in the world, and that they have a 100% winning record in h2h encounters – expect Manchester City to post the three points on the board this games week.
Porto vs Manchester City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 3-1 win for the English team.
- They have a 100% winning record in h2h meetings over the years, and have scored two or more goals in every single clash till now.
- Sporting are the only team from Portugal that have ever beaten the Citizens. And the defeat had come eight years back.
- Sergio Conceicao’s men have lost ten of their former thirteen games against other EPL squads.
Porto vs Manchester City: Prediction
The Dragons recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day in the UCL, against Marseille. In the meantime, Pep’s men registered a 0-1 win on the road the past game week, against Olympiacos.
Going on, Guardiola’s men are from the best league in Europe, while their counterparts come from the comparatively much weaker Portuguese top flight.
Moreover, a win in this encounter will ensure the top-most spot for the Citizens, and they also do have a 100% winning record in h2h meetings over the years – in which they have scored two or more goals in every single game.
In addition, the only two losses that the Citizens have suffered in the past 15 game weeks were against Tottenham, and Leicester – two of the best teams in PL this season.
By all means, count on Manchester City to record a win this Tuesday, and progress to the Round of 16.
