Schalke vs FC Porto Prediction & Tips
Schalke 04 host FC Porto for the opening day of Group D Champions League this Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen in a stadium of fond memories for the Dragons, who were crowned European champions at the orders of José Mourinho. This weekend, the Germans again lost to the championship, this time in the home of Borussia Monchengladbach, by two balls to one. Gelsenkirchen’s side have three defeats in three Bundesliga appearances, taking the last place in the league table. Already FC Porto drew with Chaves to a goal on Friday in the opening day of the group stage of the League Cup. Sérgio Conceição’s side moved forward by Hernâni in the 74th minute, but the Transmontanos, who had lost all of their time to the team’s home, reached the 83rd-minute mark by Stephen Eustaquio. The formation of Domenico Tedesco has to react in order to return to the triumphs, but will face a Portuguese formation that this season is still far from what it presented in the past campaign. Who will win?
Schalke have scored in three of their four official games this season.
FC Porto have conceded goals in three of their last five games.
The Portuguese side have scored 14 goals in their last five matches.
Schalke 04 need to win in order to get out of this minicrise and pack for a series of more consistent games. However, he faces an FC Porto that, although he is not at his best, is always a fearsome team in front of attack, managing to create several goals.
