Porto vs Brugge – Champions League Match Preview, Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Group G of the Champions League is one without major clubs, but as we’ve seen in recent seasons, these groups are anything but boring.
Although Leicester seems like they’ll win this group with ease, leading with 9 points after 3 games, Porto certainly hasn’t said their final word. They play at home against Brugge in their next game, which they are widely expected to win.
Porto vs Brugge – 02/11/2016
The Portuguese team is undefeated at home this season and hasn’t lost a single game since their 0-1 defeat against Leicester.
They are in fine form and morale is high, and a win against Brugge would bring them to 7 points – close to a spot in the knockout rounds.
Tradition is also on their side since they’re used to playing high-pressure games in Europe, while their opponents seem to be the “just enjoying the ride” type of club. Is there anything that can stop them from winning the game?
Club Brugge, sadly for them, don’t bring a lot to the table. Their away form is unimpressive, to say the least, especially in the Champions League.
They’ve lost 0-4 against Copenhagen in their previous away game, and have only scored one goal in their first three games of the group.
European Cup football might be too big of a hat for the Belgians, who can take the Champions League bonus money and try to build a better team this time around since they are clearly the weakest team in the group this year.
Porto vs Brugge Betting Tips
The prediction, thus, is clear: Porto to win. We also don’t expect Brugge to score more than one goal, so under 1,5 goals for Brugge is another good bet, although the odds won’t be the best available.
All their games so far in the Champions League were over 2,5 goal bets, so why should this one be different? To sum things up, we think that Porto will win and we’ll see some goals in the game as well: at least 2 or 3.
