Porto vs Dynamo Kyiv Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews
Group G leaders Porto host Dynamo Kyiv in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. Our betting tips suggest it will be another good night for the Portuguese club.
Reason For Porto vs Dynamo Kyiv Betting Tips
They have 10 points, which tends to be the benchmark figure for qualification, from their opening 4 matches. Their only dropped points came on matchday one when they conceded a late equaliser in the Ukrainian capital in the reverse fixture.
Since then a win over Chelsea and a couple of successes against Maccabi Tel Aviv have left them on the brink of qualification. They will secure that with a point in this game but they are a positive side and there is no chance of them approaching this with a cautious mentality.
Dinamo Kiev are only 2 points behind 2nd place Chelsea and given their final game is at home to Maccabi, who are yet to pick up a point, they are still right in contention for qualification but they may need to win this game to stay in the competition. Therefore they are also likely to play positively and it should be a relatively open game.
Porto have scored two or more goals in every game in the group so far. They have also scored 2 or more times in all but one of their last 9 matches in all competitions and are unbeaten in 7 months since they suffered defeat at Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals last season.
Therefore odds of 10/11 appear really good value for Porto to again score 2 or more goals in this match. Shakhtar may be in fine form in a weak domestic league but against the better sides in Europe and at home they have tended to concede goals. They let in 3 at home to Shakhtar Donetsk in the league last month and were beaten 2-1 at Stamford Bridge by a struggling Chelsea side last time out in Europe.
They should still be able to make a match of this though and have some talented attacking players so Porto will have to be at their best but at the Estádio Do Dragão, where they are unbeaten in 22 games they should have enough to seal the win and you can back them to win 2-1 at 15/2.
