RB Leipzig vs Porto 17 October 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

RB Leipzig will be in action this week as they take on FC Porto in their home ground in Germany. This is will be an important game for both sides since it is an opportunity for the teams to get some much-needed points and boost their chances of getting a spot in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

RB Leipzig are coming off a huge win in their domestic league as they won against Borussia Dortmund away from home. That is a big performance and the side will be feeling very confident after that. FC Porto will present another test for this young side, but they have been able to do well so far. Timo Werner, Emil Forsberg, and Naby Keita have been the three stand out players for the club and at the moment, they will need to lead the side once again.

FC Porto had a big loss in their previous game of this group stage and they will know that they have to win if they want to qualify for the next stage. Playing away from home is never easy, especially in Germany where the home crowds create a massive atmosphere. This is a game where they will need to play on the counter, otherwise, the high pressing game of RB Leipzig will be too much for them.

All in all, I am going to go for the home side. RB Leipzig are in good form and at home, they should be good enough to get the three points. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and as a result, I think that it is the best option in relation to betting.

 

Pick:
RB Leipzig
