After finishing 2nd in the Laliga last season the Los Blancos will be aiming to challenge bitter rivals and reigning champions Atletico Madrid for the league title this season. The Carlo Ancelloti's men kicked off their domestic Campaign with an impressive 4-1 triump against Alaves and will head to this clash full of confidence.

Considering Real Madrid's blistering form, we fancy away team to win & 3+ goals to be scored.
Porto have had a stellar start to their domestic league, having managed 2 victories in their opening two league fixtures, conceding once and keeping one cleansheet which has inspired them to 3rd spot in the Primeira Liga with 6 points.
On the other hand, Maritimo have won 1 and lost 1 of their first two league fixtures, conceding 3 goals in the process. Porto trounced Maritimo 2-1 in their previous encounter.
All factors into consideration the best pick here is, Porto to win & both teams to score.
