Betting Tip: Draw
I’m taking the 5/2 for Porto and Chelsea to draw on Wednesday.
It’s fair to say Porto’s home form has been excellent in this competition. The Portuguese outfit have won three and drawn one of their four games at Estádio do Dragão, conceding just one goal – a run including a clean sheet against Man City.
As for Chelsea, they’ve got to seriously dust themselves down after the embarrassing 5-2 home defeat against West Brom. That is very much the first big setback of Thomas Tuchel’s career in West London, but it’s still important they recover mentally from what was a tough afternoon.
Both sides have displayed excellent defensive resilience this season—Chelsea conceded two goals in the 10 league games prior to the Baggies defeat—and for this reason a low-scoring draw looks very much on the cards.
Porto will believe they can beat Chelsea, having beaten Juventus on their own patch in the previous round, but caution will be prioritised by both managers, which is why 5/2 looks tempting.
Porto vs Chelsea Odds
