RB Leipzig vs FC Porto – Champions League: In one of the matches of this Group G of the Champions League, Portugal and Germany’s vice-champions will meet…
With both teams separated only by 2 points going into this 3rd round of the group stage, and curiously, both teams having the same amount of goals conceded.
On the German side, Stefan Ilsanker and Klostermann are absent due to injury; On the Portuguese side, the only absence should be Soares, also due to an injury.
Leipzig is having a start of season, generally, pretty positive, sitting close to the top of the table on the Bundesliga. However, things aren’t going so well on the Champions League, where they’ve got 1 point in possible 6 so far and have a very poor offensive record.
Since this is their first experience on the Champions League’s level, and give the fact that they are a very young team, one of the youngest on this competition, that can justify this poor start from the team led by Hasenhuttl.
On the FC Porto’s side, after their comfortable win at Stade Louis II, the team us closer to their pre-defined objectives for the season on the Champions league, after their somewhat surprising defeat against the Turkish champions on the first round, at home.
The team is having an excellent start to the season, only stained by the loss against Besiktas and the draw against Sporting, in Alvalade. They are coming off a comfortable win against a lower-tier team in Taça de Portugal.
RB Leipzig vs FC Porto – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Due to the fact that both of these teams usually present attacking and very intense football, I see this match having some goals effectively, if the defences don’t have a flawless performance, along with the goalkeepers.
Therefore, I believe we will have some goals in this match.
All that’s left to know is if both attacks will be able to overcome the opposing defences and take advantage of the mistakes that will surely exist.
I think, considering that both sides play a style that, despite being flashy and easy on the eye, is also favourable to defensive mistakes.
