Group G was the dream draw for all four of its participants, with neither of these sides nor rivals Leicester and FC Copenhagen among the competition frontrunners and therefore a huge opportunity provided for any of them to reach the knockout phase.

Club Brugge and Porto have done the poorest job capitalising thus far, with both winless. The former have been turned over twice, 3-0 at home by Leicester and 4-0 in Denmark, while the latter are only a point better off, being held when hosting FC Copenhagen and edged out 1-0 in by the Foxes.

This double header is consequently pivotal to both teams, as doing the double over the other would catapult either into contention. Unsurprisingly, the visitors are judged the more likely to exploit the opening given their greater European pedigree as two-time winners and superior results to date.

However, a run of one Champions League away victory in six excluding qualifiers hints that they aren't the most reliable odds-on wager of the week at 1.784/5.


Both Teams to Score? No

Instead, the best bet appears to be opposing both teams to score, having been a winner in Club Brugge's last four fixtures - two triumphs and two defeats - as well as both of their Group G assignments, and seven of Porto's past ten matches across the board, including each of the latest three.
