Porto and Milan yet to claim a win

Porto and AC Milan both have plenty of catching up to do, as they prepare to meet in this Group B clash.

Milan have lost both of their two games and are bottom of the group. They can count themselves rather unlucky to be in such a position. They were 2-1 up away at Anfield, before losing 3-2 against Liverpool and look set to beat Atletico Madrid, despite only having ten men for much of the match, only to concede two late goals.

Domestically, things are going much better. Unbeaten in Serie A after eight games (W7 D1), they are top of the table, winning 3-2 at home against Verona on Saturday.

Porto started their Champions League campaign with a positive result, as they claimed a point in a 0-0 away draw at Atletico Madrid. They were then thrashed 5-1 at home by Liverpool, but like Milan, they have been very consistent domestically. Porto are unbeaten in their eight Primeira Liga games this season (W6 D2) and are second in the table, just a point behind Benfica.

Milan have to go for win

Porto are the narrow favourites at 2.68/5, with AC Milan at 2.9215/8 and the draw at 3.613/5.

For Milan especially, there is a real need for a win, if they are to have any chance of qualifying for the last-16. With both teams going for it, this is a game where the result could go either way, but where goals seem likely.

Both teams to score has landed in each of AC Milan's last four games and is available at 1.748/11.
