Betting Tip: Porto +0.50 @ 19/20 with bet365

Porto were in the Group G box seat before their home match against Dynamo Kiev a fortnight ago, although a victory for the Ukraine side at the Estadio do Dragao means that the section is now up for grabs.

The Portuguese side remain top although only on their head-to-head record against Chelsea by virtue of a 2-1 win against the London side earlier in the campaign, with Jose Mourinho’s team needing a draw to advance to the last sixteen stage of the competition.

A draw might be their best hope, with the English champions meekly defending their title this season and Saturday’s home reverse against Bournemouth illustrated the problems that exist for the Blues at the moment.

They have smashed Maccabi Tel Aviv home and away, although they have won just one of their other three matches, scraping past Dynamo after drawing in the Ukraine and losing narrowly to Porto.

Chelsea simply can’t be backed at even money considering they don’t even need to win this game, although victory would send through the London side in top spot and leave Porto anxiously hoping that Maccabi somehow do them a favour.

Porto’s domestic form has been rock solid recently, with the team winning their last five matches and they will be aware of their opponents’ frailties.

A 2-1 win against Pacos Ferreira warmed them up nicely for this match, with Jesus Manuel Corona getting among the goals recently.

We’re happy to side with the visitors on the Draw No Bet market for a match which is likely to be tense throughout and could have a nasty sting in the tail for Chelsea.
