Porto trail the other members of Portugal's big four despite winning three of their opening four fixtures, paying the price for a 2-1 loss away to Sporting CP.

FC Copenhagen's domestic position is stronger having survived the first eight rounds of Danish Superliga action undefeated and come through three rounds of Champions League qualifying.

Their road form is fading though. After kicking off the campaign with a 3-0 success at Crusaders and 4-0 victory over Esbjerg, they have drawn 1-1 four times in a row on their travels. That combined with Porto's 3-0 triumph at Roma to earn their group-stage place explains the hosts' 1.548/15 odds.


To Win to Nil

If you are on board with the Porto win, you may wish to double down with a bet on them doing so without conceding at odds of around 2.47/5. Opta note that their four previous home games against sides from Denmark were won by an aggregate scoreline of 8-0.

Excluding qualifiers, FC Copenhagen have been shut out in four of their past six trips abroad in the Champions League, while their hosts have kept seven clean sheets in their last 16 Estadio do Dragao clashes in the competition proper.
