Porto vs RB Leipzig Champions League Predictions

Porto vs RB Leipzig
UEFA Champions League
Date: 1st November 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao (Porto).

RB Leipzig clinched the first Champions League win in their history two weeks ago when they came out victorious from a five-goal thriller with Porto.

The Bundesliga runners-up have thus complicated the battle for the second spot in the Group G by overtaking the Portuguese outfit ahead of their new clash at Dragao.


Sergio Conceicao’s men have maintained the impressive run of form in the domestic campaign on Saturday evening when they saw off Boavista 0-3 on the road.

Porto are thus still two points clear ahead of Sporting CP at the top of the standings with nine wins and a draw so far in Primeira Liga.

Vincent Aboubakar is enjoying an excellent spell of form. He notched three goals in last four matches and he will clearly be the main threat to Leipzig’s goal on Wednesday.

RB Leipzig

The Bulls were on a run of four straight wins before losing back-to-back clashes with Bayern Munich within just four days.

The Bavarians first advanced in DFB Pokal after penalty shootout, while the weekend’s league fixture saw a comfortable 2-0 win for Heynckes’ side after Leipzig’s center back Willi Orban was sent off only 13 minutes in the game.

Porto vs RB Leipzig: Head to head

Willi Orban was just the one who pushed Leipzig ahead in against Porto two weeks ago.

Aboubakar quickly made it all square, but Emil Forsberg and Jean Augustin notched two more for the Germans before the break.

Ivan Marcano completed the miraculous first half time with what later proved to be a consolation goal for the Portuguese outfit.

Porto vs RB Leipzig: Prediction

The rematch could well produce another high-scoring contest since both teams are super strong moving forward.

Backing Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.80 has to be the way to go, while the value is also with Aboubakar to keep the spell of excellent form going and score for the hosts here.

Porto vs RB Leipzig: Bets

The main bet will be Over 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.80.

The second option is Vincent Aboubakar to score anytime at 2.50.
