FC Porto – Club Brugge KV Predictions and PREVIEW

  • Porto opened their UEFA Champions League (UCL) campaign in dramatic second half stoppage-time circumstances, conceding a gut-wrenching 101st minute goal to lose 2-1. The dismissal of Mehdi Taremi in that game certainly didn’t help Porto’s bid to put some early UCL points on the board in Group B, though he was on the scoresheet in Porto’s 3-0 Primeira Liga victory over Chaves, and that win should renew optimism ahead of the visit of Club Brugge.
  • The Portuguese side are accustomed to beating sides from Belgium, having never lost at home against opposition from the country (W6, D2), so the visit of Brugge could prove to be the perfect antidote to ending their three-match losing UCL run. In fact never in UCL history have Porto lost four in a row, but with no side leaving the Estádio do Dragão with a Primeira Liga victory since October 2020, Porto will hope to transfer that home league form onto the European stage.
  • Brugge began their club record fifth-successive UCL group stage with a 1-0 triumph over Leverkusen and followed it up with a 2-0 Belgian Pro League victory over RFC Seraing at the weekend – their sixth win in a row. Continuing that momentum with another victory here could prove key to Brugge finally making it through to the knockout stages of the UCL for the first time ever.
  • Just three wins from their last 11 UCL away group games (D4, L4) would indicate that still appears a long shot, but with manager Carl Hoefkens managing to rotate some of his players at the weekend, Brugge should make the trip to Portugal with fresh legs. Perhaps that freshness will be needed for a Brugge side that have won on just one of their last five visits to Portugal (L4), although with only five wins from their last 33 UCL proper fixtures (D10, L18), maybe freshness isn’t the issue.
  • Players to watchEvanilson has scored in each of Porto’s three home league games this term, but none of his goals arrived earlier than the 35th minute. Meanwhile, Brugge’s Casper Nielsen has seen his last 15 club scoring appearances end in victory for his side.
  • Hot streak: Brugge are without a clean sheet in nine UCL away games.
