Bayern Munich travel to Portugal to take on Porto in the last quarter final of the Champions League. Munich are the favourites for the Champions League and managed by Guardiola the German champs have lost only one domestic game all season and one chmpions league game, away to Manchester City. Missing Arjen Robben who is arguably the best player in Europe right now Bayern will be led by Ribery, Lewandowski and Muller. With so much strength in depth Bayern Munich do look the best team in Europe right now and they will take some stopping. If there are any chinks in Bayern's armour though it is their away form and they struggled against Shakthar Donetsk in the last round finishing level in the first game over in the Ukraine.
Porto will have been looking for an easier draw but the Portugese side will be confident of givign Bayern a run for their money at home. With Jackson Martinez up front Porto have one of the best strikers in Europe who has seventeen goals in just over twenty games this season. Tello, Brahimi and Quaresma will provide the support for Martinez and they will try to break down a Bayern defence that has had four clean sheets in their last five. This is going to be a tough game for Porto but they have the individual talent to cause Bayern problems.
Taking both teams to score here as I see Porto as a team that will not just sit back and defend. With Martinez up front Porto have a player capable of scoring against the best defences. At 3/4 Bayern probably are too short to be value, especially considering the game is away from home but I do think that Bayern will probably come away with the win.
