Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League

Leicester welcome Porto to the King Power Stadium, in the second round of matches from this season’s Champions League group stage games .

The Foxes come into this match on the back of a 4-1 defeat against Manchester United, with goals from Smalling, Mata, Rashford and Pogba enough to secure a heavy defeat.

Three goals came from set pieces, with United’s acquisition’s of Pogba, Ibrahimovic and Bailey adding to the aerial presence of Smalling.

Europe The Catalyst

Leicester enjoyed an incredible opening night in the Champions League, with a 3-0 win away against Club Brugge a fortnight ago.

Goals from Marc Albrighton (5) and a double from Riyad Mahrez ensured the perfect start in their maiden Champions League fixture.

Ranieri can take heart from the fact that the excellent performance against Brugge came directly after another defeat, with Liverpool giving them a 4-1 defeat prior to that game.

They find themselves in 11th position in the Premier League, it was always going to be tough after last year’s incredible title win though.

Exciting Times For Leicester

The Foxes will be looking to the Champions League as their main priority, with the Premier League form proving hard to come by this new challenge will be a major incentive.

Porto travel to the King Power Stadium, they will be much sterner opposition than Brugge but home advantage will be key for the Foxes.

With Porto, Brugge and FC Copenhagen in their group, wins against the Portuguese side will be key to their chances of topping the group.


Porto Draw Opener

Porto come into this game on the back of 1-1 draw against FC Copenhagen in their opening match.

The Portuguese side took the lead early on, with a 13th-minute win from Otavio, with Cornelius equalising for the visitors in the 52nd minute.

It was a point that will have disappointed Porto, not only because they were at home and took the lead but also because Copenhagen finished the game with ten men.

They failed to capitalise on the one-man advantage, they maintain their excellent home record in European competition.

Good Season So Far

Porto have started the season in good form, with four wins a draw and a defeat from their opening six matches.

Their best win of the season came in the 3-0 win against Vitoria de Guimaraes, which saw Marcano, Torres and an Aurelio own goal to complete the scoring.

The defeat against Sporting Lisbon was an early blow, with Porto looking to stamp their mark on this season’s first division.

Leicester Ties Key

Porto will know that the two ties against Leicester will be key, especially if they are to top the group and ensure an easier tie in the last 16.

They will be looking to improve on their opening showing in this season’s competition, although Leicester will be delighted with their opening display.


Both teams are 5/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Leicester are Jamie Vardy at 9/2 with Islam Slimani at 5/1. For Porto, Andre Silva is at 5/1 with Laurent Depoitre at 7/1.

This is the first meeting between the two sides in European competition.
