Monaco vs Porto 26 September 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

AS Monaco take on Porto for what will be the first home game for the side from Monte Carlo is this seasons Champions League. Both sides have lost a ton of players over the transfer window and as a result they are both looking to surprise opponents this season. A win is possible of either side in this game and as a result, I am expecting a really good game of football.

Porto lost their first game at home to Turkish side, Besiktas. That will not have done the Portuguese side any good in terms of their confidence. This game will be another test for Porto as Monaco will possess similar threats that they will need to deal with. That being said, this is a team that has won all their games in the domestic league so they are in pretty good form and they should be able to test the Monaco team well.

Monaco on the other hand managed to get a draw against RB Leipzig on matchday one of the Champions League. This side is playing well at the moment and it looks like they are dealing with their new squad really well. I am pretty sure that they will come into this game as the favorites and I think they will show why. The quality and structure of this team is world class and that should be enough to get them a win at home.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a really good price on AS Monaco winning this game. Due to that reason, we should make this as our best bet for this game.
