Porto vs Inter Milan
Porto are hoping to win again after their last result, the 3-2 Primeira Liga success versus Estoril.
In that game, Porto managed 63% possession and 12 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. For Porto, the goalscorers were Marko Grujić (9'), André Franco (31') and Mehdi Taremi (73'). Estoril got 9 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Tiago Gouveia (27') and Geraldes (67') scored for Estoril.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where Porto have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Porto have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 7 goals during that time.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Spezia in Serie A competition,
Inter Milan will be aiming to make amends here.
In that match, Inter Milan had 69% possession and 28 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. The only player to score for Inter Milan was Romelu Lukaku (83'). Spezia had 4 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Daniel Maldini (55') and M'Bala Nzola (87') scored for Spezia.
A run of resolute performances from the Inter Milan defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their past 6 clashes overall. In that time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 7. That aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend will be replicated in this next game or not.
I'm inclined to think that Inter Milan and Porto should play out a closely-fought contest here.
Let me see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to me. That is why i are leaning toward a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.
