Porto v Besiktas– 19.45 GMT kickoff
Despite losing some key players over the summer, Porto remain a force to be reckoned. Five wins from five in the league so far this season has sent out a warning shot. Champions League is a different kind of test but their confidence will be sky high. Their league form shows they still retain plenty of firepower. In addition, they’ve yet to let in a single goal this season and are clearly still a highly organised side.
They also have a strong home record in this competition, having only lost 2 of their last 16. They’ve also kept a clean sheet in their last 14 games at home.
This is Besiktas second visit to the group stakes in the past 7 years and their latest attempt was solid, but not enough to progress. They have made a decent enough start to their league campaign, but this will be a much tougher test.
Porto tend to get the job done, without it being a goalfest. They get ahead and then sit on their advantage and with a solid defence, they can afford to do so.
Porto v Besiktas- Summary
A Porto victory by a goal or two is expected this evening. We expect them to get the job done without too much sweat.
