Leicester City is one of those teams which are very, very hard to bet on in this season of the Champions League. They are absolute debutants in the competition and will clearly focus more on their domestic competition, where they aim to finish at least in the top-6. Their opponents, FC Porto, have a lot more tradition in the competition, but their current form isn’t very impressive.
Leicester City vs Porto
The Portuguese team comes after some less-than-ideal results, including draws against FC Copenhagen and Tondela and a loss against Sporting.
Porto knows that they must start delivering better results soon, but thankfully for them, the group doesn’t seem very complicated.
Even if they don’t beat Leicester in this game, they should be able to finish easily over Brugge or Copenhagen, but then again, we have seen weird things happen in football. Surely, Leicester’s fatigue will also be a factor in the game.
That fatigue could be Leicester’s worst enemy. Last season, they exited cup competitions rather early. This time around, the expectations are higher, they are still involved in all competitions and simply don’t have a squad which can tank playing a hard game every 3 days.
After an easy win against the Belgians of the group, the Blues know that Porto will be a lot harder to beat – and depending on the result of the derby with United during the weekend, they might even have to rest a few players.
Leicester City vs Porto Betting Tips
That, coupled with the fact that Porto has, by far, the more experienced squad, leaves us the believe that the Portuguese will not lose the game.
X2 is our bet of choice, coupled with an under 3,5 or 2,5 goal bet, and one pointing towards Porto having more of the ball. If you’re looking for a high-odd bet, Porto and under 2,5 goals has great chances to succeed.
