Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lyon vs Porto


In the Bundesliga, over the last 9 rounds, "pharmacists" have suffered only one defeat. In the standings, they occupy 3rd place, ahead of three teams at once by 4 points (Freiburg, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig). Moussa Diaby (8 goals and one assist in the last eight matches) and Patrick Schick (20 goals in 20 rounds of the German championship) stand out from the squad. By the way, the Czech is now an assistant to the team, as he injured his calf muscle in the game against Mainz 4 weeks ago.

In the 1/8 finals of the Europa League, Bayer got from first place in Group G, having won 4 wins in six matches.


In the championship of Portugal, Porto has not suffered a single defeat in 25 rounds and has only drawn 4 times. Nothing threatens leadership yet, because the gap from the nearest pursuer, which is Sporting, is as much as 9 points.

The European Cup season began for the Dragons with the Champions League. They ended up in a very difficult group "B", in which they won only one victory, and took third place, which gave them the right to continue fighting in the Europa League. In the 1/16 finals, the Conceição team defeated Lazio: a strong-willed victory at home (2-1) and a draw in Rome (2-2) with a goal conceded in injury time.

Game Totals Prediction

At Dragao, a week ago, Lyon not only survived, but even managed to win thanks to an accurate strike from Lucas Paqueta in the 59th minute: 1-0. Despite such an unexpected result, the Dragons should not be written off, because in their domestic championship they continue to go without defeat, and at the last stage they were close to victory in Rome, where Lazio rarely lost to anyone.

The upcoming battle should be interesting and emotional. We believe that the intrigue will last until the very final whistle, so the plus handicap should come in absolutely without problems: “Porto with Handicap (+1.0)” for 1.35. In general, we allow ourselves to disagree with the quotes of bookmakers, and we advise you to boldly consider betting options in favor of the "dragons", which now look more confident and stable than the "weavers": "Porto More (1.0)" for 1.65 or "X2" for 1.68.
