Porto 1/1 to beat Roma in Wednesday’s Champions League tie
Competition: Champions League
Market: Porto win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Looking to turn around their 2-1 deficit and book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Champions League, Porto will host Serie A outfit Roma on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Porto would have been disappointed to have suffered a 2-1 defeat in the first leg, the Portuguese side do hold an impressive record at the Estádio Do Dragão. Sitting just two points behind Benfica in the race to regain their Primeira title, they have now won three of their last four matches on home soil and registered two or more goals in each of those victories. More impressive, Porto have won five of their last six Champions League matches at the Estádio Do Dragão and have scored 16 goals in those five wins.
As for the visitors, while Roma might have enjoyed a bright start to the second half of the season, the Serie A side have famously struggled on their European nights away from the Stadio Olimpico. Roma have recorded just one victory in their last eight Champions League away matches and more worrying, they have lost six of their last seven appearances. Conceding two or more goals in each of those European defeats, we’re backing another tough evening for Wednesday’s visitors. Backing a Porto win at 1/1 seems like the smartest bet here.
