Porto can move up to second place in Champions League Group G if beating RB Leipzig in Portugal and the hosts are fancied to pick up maximum points at Estadio do Dragao.

With runaway pool leaders Besiktas facing basement dwellers Monaco this week, this game could have a huge bearing on who makes it through to the knockout stages.

We reckon the timing of this fixture favours the hosts and they appeal at 11/10 for our Porto vs RB Leipzig betting predictions.

A Look At Porto’s Betting Odds

Porto recovered from an opening loss to Besiktas by claiming an emphatic 3-0 triumph at Monaco on Matchday 2, but they were on the back foot again in Germany.

Leipzig were the better team when shading that five-goal thriller and should really have extended their 3-2 half-time lead in the second period.

However, Porto are traditionally much stronger on home turf, picking up seven points in front of their own fans in last-season’s group, and have been banging in goals for fun here in domestic competitions.

Sergio Conceicao’s side have scored 21 times in five straight Portuguese league games at this venue, with impressive Cameroon striker Vincent Aboubakar bagging six of them and three Champions League strikes so far.

Looking at the Porto vs RB Leipzig odds, we like 21/10 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game.

A Look At RB Leipzig’s Betting Odds

Leipzig enjoyed their first win in this competition when beating Porto two weeks ago but have had a tough domestic schedule since that memorable triumph.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side must travel to Portugal on the back of two meetings with Bayern Munich in the German Cup and the Bundesliga.

The head coach was delighted with the first performance against Porto, stating: “We set ourselves the target of putting all the things that make us Leipzig on display.

“Fast-paced build-up play, creating chances and constantly putting our opponents under pressure. We probably could, and should, have scored more.

“Up front, we have so many options, so many variations, so many ways to cause opponents problems. The future is looking bright for us.”

Similar tactics should help them to test Porto’s defence again, but Leipzig look vulnerable at the back after losing at Besiktas in their maiden European away game.

We’re rounding off our Porto vs RB Leipzig betting tips by taking 14/5 for a home win and both teams to score.
