Porto Prediction – Can Porto emerge as favourites?

In a highly competitive and congested Group G, Porto, Rangers, Feyenoord and Young Boys all sit on 3 points apiece in the most even group of these Europa League group stages of this competition, but Porto will fancy their chances of forging ahead on Thursday night against their Scottish counterparts.

Having won 9 of their last 10 matches overall in all competitions, Porto have reason to be confident ahead of this crucial Matchday 3 clash with Rangers, even though they suffered a 2-0 defeat away from home at Feyenoord last time out in the Europa League.

Porto recorded a Matchday 1 win over Young Boys 2-1 to get the hosts off to a good start in this competition, while the bigger picture shows that Porto have suffered just 2 defeats on home turf out of their last 10 matches at their Estádio Do Dragão.

Losses to Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund are no disgrace but previous wins over Villarreal, Sporting Braga, Napoli, Sevilla and most recently, Young Boys, should see the hosts well placed for a win here.

Rangers Prediction – Can Rangers improve on the road?

A 1-0 home win over Dutch outfit, Feyenoord, gave Rangers and manager, Steven Gerrard, the perfect start to their Europa League group campaign but the Scottish side were unable to capitalise on that opening round win as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat away at Young Boys on Matchday 2.

That loss to the Swiss club has been Rangers’ only defeat out of their last 8 matches in all competitions, which also includes wins against Livingston (twice), St Johnstone, Aberdeen and Hamilton Academicals in the domestic Premiership.

However, although Rangers have lost just 1 of their last 10 Europa League ties overall, the visitors have performed below average on the road in this competition, and it’s their ordinary results on their travels which could potentially be damaging to them on Thursday night.

With just 2 away wins out of their last 10 matches on the road at this level, which were victories at Gibraltar outfit St Joseph’s and Danish club, Midtjylland, The Gers have suffered defeats at Spartak Moscow, Rapid Vienna and Young Boys in return.


Key-Facts – Porto v Rangers

  • Porto have won 9 of their last 10 matches in all competitions
  • Porto have lost just 2 of their last 10 matches at home in the Europa League
  • Rangers have managed just 2 wins out of their last 10 at home in the EL


Betting Tips Verdict

Porto have been in impressive form overall at home and also hold a steady record at home in the Europa League too – the hosts should win this one quite comfortably.
