Manchester City Preview – Can Man City seal opening win?

Wednesday’s hosts, Manchester City, have made a bright start to their new season as The Citizens have lost just one of their first six matches in all competitions so far in this campaign and an important 1-0 home win over Arsenal in the Premier League on the weekend will serve as a timely boost ahead of this opening group match in the Champions League.

City have progressed through the early rounds of the League Cup with victories over Bournemouth and Burnley and although they suffered a heavy 5-2 defeat at home to Leicester City, Pep Guardiola’s side have picked up wins against Wolves and Arsenal to tip the balance in their favour.

Winning the Champions League with Manchester City has so far eluded Pep Guardiola but having lost just one of their last 10 ties overall in this competition, the hosts are expected to go deep into this season’s Champions League with at least a quarter-final spot being the bare minimum requirement this term.

Porto Preview – Can Porto return to winning ways?

Portuguese outfit, Porto, had earlier made an excellent start to their new season when they recorded back-to-back wins in the Primeira Liga with victories over Sporting Braga 3-1 and a resounding 5-0 thrashing of Boavista away from home.

However, Wednesday’s visitors have since stumbled a little in recent times as they’ve been handed a 3-2 defeat at home to Maritimo and were then held to a point in a 2-2 draw away from home at Sporting CP on the weekend in the Portuguese top flight.

Recent results in the Champions League have also been questioned lately having lost four of their last six ties in the competition with defeats to Roma, Liverpool (home and away) and Krasnodar, and although they’ve lost just two of their last eight away ties, they’ve also managed to win just three as well.
