ATL MADRID VS FC PORTO PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Victories helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga title and continue to participate in the leading group this season. In the group stage of the Champions League last year they won 9 points after 6 matches, scored 7 goals and only conceded 8 times. The attack was not so excellent but the defense was really different.
The pragmatic play has become the trademark of Atletico – Diego Simeone, the efficiency is undisputed. With the contract to bring Griezmann back, El Cholo is in the hands of an extremely powerful force. The 3 minimum victories in the last 4 matches continue to show stability, also a perfect momentum. The defending champion Spain will continue to show his old age and willingness to punish the opponent’s mistakes.
FC Porto is a familiar name in the Champions League but looking at the remaining 3 names in Group B, their chances are not much. Remember last season, the Portuguese representative reached the quarter-finals before losing 1-2 to Chelsea. Starting this season with 5 unbeaten matches in the domestic league, Porto scored 9 goals and conceded 3 times. The strong point is the ability to defend firmly and play stubbornly.
In the last 10 matches in the Champions League, Porto only conceded 8 times against Chelsea, Juventus or Manchester City. With what has been shown, Porto will not be easily subdued even if they are the lowest rated in Group B.
The caution on the opening day and the good defense of both teams hardly contributed many goals. In fact, the last encounter at the Metropolitano also ended with a faint score. Especially in a game as important as this rematch, that scenario is completely repeatable.
Select: Under 2.25 FT.
In terms of class as well as achievements in recent years, Porto can not compare with the opponent. Atletico Madrid has reached the final twice in the last 8 seasons, this period they are even more appreciated after winning La Liga and welcoming the return of Griezmann. The confrontation record is also supporting Simeone’s students with 2 consecutive victories before this rematch, including a 2-0 victory at the Metropolitano.
Atletico Madrid’s brilliant performance completely convinced the experts with 3 wins and 4 consecutive unbeaten matches in the new season. Porto is going through a series of 2 consecutive away matches without winning in the domestic league. Having to play away from home against a higher-class opponent must have put Porto at a psychological disadvantage.
Select: Atletico Madrid FT.
European odds highly appreciate Atletico Madrid’s ability to win. The convincing performance is full of the strongest squad, it is difficult for them to make mistakes. With the difference between the two teams, the chances for Porto are clearly not many.
