Atletico Madrid vs FC Porto Predictions
- Atleti scored in three of their four matches this year
- Porto have a streak of nine consecutive outings where they score a goal
- Both sides scored when they last met in December
Atleti can start strong?
Atletico Madrid has had a mixed start to their season. They have lost just two of their first four matches, after drawing 1-1 at Real Sociedad last weekend.
Diego Simeone’s team have won all but one match, a 2-0 loss at Villarreal. They also kept clean sheets in only two of their six previous competitive matches.
They also have only three clean sheets in nine of their home Champions League matches, with both sides scoring on four occasions.
Porto on a roll
Porto, on the other hand, are enjoying a better start to their campaign with five wins in six matches across all competitions and an impressive total of 14 goals.
Sergio Conceicao’s team has only failed to score in one of its outings, while both sides scored in two of their five last games.
There are concerns about the Portuguese side in this competition, though, as they have only won one of their six previous matches, which was half of which saw both sides score.
Both teams should score, but I believe Atleti will win brightly. I’m predicting a score of 2-1 for the hosts.
