Porto vs Monaco – UEFA Champions League: If for AS Monaco this match will mean nothing…
For FC Porto this will be a decisive match to see whether they will advance in the Champions League…
The Monegasques weren’t capable to bring to this competition the ability to compete at a higher level that, despite some ups & downs, they have been presenting in Ligue 1.
Leonardo Jardim’s speech is thoughtful and offers the signs of someone who already knew what he would live this season.
The rebuilding of a successful side isn’t an easy task and immediate success (like it appeared at the beginning of the season) shouldn’t be considered a reality but surely more like an illusion.
This match ends up being much more definitive for Sérgio Conceição. On Liga NOS, the manager won’t have many doubts of their ability to be superior to their main rivals,
although they faced those two rivals twice and failed to score in both matches, which means they are right now tied with Sporting in first place with only a 3-point advantage to Benfica.
Well, if we are talking about moments of decision, this is a good opportunity to identify if that block on finishing will maintain itself against a team like Monaco.
The fact that FC Porto is the only interested participant in this match can be favourable for them.
Without a very closed or passive defensive block from their opponent, it will be easier for FC Porto to find ways to reach the goal.
Porto vs Monaco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a challenge to FC Porto’s creativity, on a match where they will face a side that will know exactly who they will have upon them.
The study of FC Porto’s team made by Monaco should unveil some options that will make the difference, forcing the home side to also present some solutions that, so far, they hadn’t used.
The options of Sérgio Conceição regarding the starting line-up (Does Corona start? Who plays in midfield?) might be the first step of the reply we were looking for.
