FC Porto vs Monaco Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Porto are targeting a place in the Champions League knockout rounds when they welcome Monaco at the Estadio Do Dragao on Wednesday night. FC Porto threw away a one-goal lead following Felipe’s first-half strike to only secure a 1-1 away draw at Besiktas. On the other hand, Monaco suffered a thrashing 1-4 home loss against RB Leipzig last time out in the Champions League, with their consolation goal being scored by Radamel Falcao just before the break. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

This is a must-win game for Porto and they should be able to take all three points here, given the fact that Monaco are already out of the competition. However, Monaco still possess great quality up front and I expect them to get on the scoresheet here, especially because Porto have conceded at least once in five of their last eight home fixtures across all competitions.

FC Porto Preview

FC Porto are undefeated in nine competitive games at the moment in time, registering four draws and five victories in the process. However, Porto haven’t been at their best recently as their most recent three games have ended in draws. They drew 1-1 against Besiktas last time out in the Champions League and they now sit second in the group G table tied on 7 points with the third-placed RB Leipzig. Porto are the group’s top scorers with ten goals under their belts after five rounds, including three from their goalscorer Vincent Aboubakar. Porto can count on their home form over the past eight months as they have only lost once in their last 15 competitive fixtures. They are currently on a seven-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in five of these. In addition, Porto have only lost twice in their last seven home games in the Champions League. Furthermore, FC Porto managed to beat Monaco 3-0 in their sole meeting with the French side. All Porto need is a victory here in order to book their place into the next stage of the competition.

FC Porto Team News

Ribeiro de Freitas Fabiano is the only doubtful player for Porto ahead of this clash.

Monaco Preview

Monaco, on the flip side, have endured a poor run of form over the past month, registering two draws, three defeats and two wins in their last ten games across all competitions. The Monegasques were on a four-game winless streak prior to their 1-0 home victory over Angers in their most recent competitive fixture. Regarding their Champions League group stage campaign, Monaco had a torrid time this season, as they are yet to win a single game in five group fixtures. Their sloppy defence has been the main reason for their struggle throughout this group G campaign, as they conceded eleven goals in five group fixtures so far. Away from home, the Monegasque side have only won once in their last six Champions League fixtures and drew their both trips to RB Leipzig and Besiktas this season. Furthermore, Monaco are currently on a three-game winless streak on the road, having scored just two goals in this term. Radamel Falcao is the player to watch for Monaco, as the veteran striker has already scored 16 goals across all competitions.

Monaco Team News

Stevan Jovetic, Souahilo Meite, Loic Badiashile, Jordi Mboula, Andrea Raggi, Adama Traore, Youri Tielemans and Gabriel Boschilia are all doubts.
