Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Porto Predictions

  • Leverkusen scored four goals on Xabi Alonso’s managerial debut.
  • Porto scored eight times across their last three games.
  • The main selection won in two of the last three H2H encounters.

The perfect start for Xabi Alonso

Bayer Leverkusen battered Schalke 4-0 at the weekend in what was the perfect result to begin Xabi Alonso’s managerial tenure. It was a complete performance according to the former Champions League winner as a player, but dragging Leverkusen to springtime Champions League football for the first time in five years is now a key priority.
The introduction of Alonso came after Porto effectively ended Seoane’s managerial stint at Leverkusen, a result which left this group looking upside-down as far as the pre-season predictions are concerned, with Club Brugge running away at the top!
After failing to progress from the group stage last season, Porto arrive in Leverkusen with a point to prove following their win in this fixture last week. They have scored eight times in three games since the recent international break, so goals could well be on the cards yet again.

An exciting encounter at the BayArena

Leverkusen do have notable absences including two suspended players Jeremie Frimpong and Robert Andrich, and that’s not to mention their handful of injuries. However, they are positively buzzing at the minute and should have enough momentum building to put one or two past Porto.

Meanwhile, Porto failed to win five of their last six Champions League away games while they are winless across their last four competitive trips to Germany. As such, we’re siding with a 2-1 Leverkusen win in the correct score market, a result which would see our main prediction of BTTS & over 2.5 goals land!
