Atletico Madrid v Porto: Hosts are leaking goals

Diego Simeone.
Will Atletico Madrid continue to concede goals when they host Porto?

Clean sheets are not coming as regularly for Atletico Madrid these days and Dan Fitch is predicting that they will concede against Porto in the Champions League.

"They’ve conceded in three of their four games and against Espanyol, could have easily let in two or three in the first-half. Porto have scored in all five of their games this season."

Back both Atletico Madrid and Porto to score at 2.226/5

La Liga champs making hard work of victories

Group B might well be the most evenly matched in this season's Champions League, with Atletico Madrid and Porto paired with AC Milan and Porto.

Home results are likely to be key and Atletico will be hoping to start off their campaign with a victory. They have made an unbeaten start to the defence of their La Liga title, but they've made hard work of it.

On Sunday they went a goal down at Espanyol and needed an injury time winner from Thomas Lemar to come away with a 2-1 victory. In their last home game they twice had to come from behind to draw 2-2 with Villarreal, with the eventual equaliser also coming in injury time. Atletico paired Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann for the first time against Espanyol, but both were replaced as Diego Simeone chased three points.

Porto come into this game off the back of a big match, in which they drew 1-1 at the reigning Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon. Sergio Conceicao's team are currently third in the Primeira Liga after five games (W3 D2).

Atletico defence not as tight as normal

Atletico Madrid are the 1.654/6 favourites, with the draw at 3.613/5 and Porto at 7.06/1.

Considering that wins are not coming easily, that looks a short price for Atletico. They've conceded in three of their four games and against Espanyol, could have easily let in two or three in the first-half. Porto have scored in all five of their games this season.

Both teams to score therefore looks a really big price at 2.226/5. If backing a home win, go for an Atletico Madrid victory and both teams to score at 4.1.
