Porto News and Form – Can Porto produce a win in Glasgow?

The Dragons opened their campaign with a win, beating Young Boys 2-1 at home. But they then suffered a loss out at Feyenoord on Matchday Two. They have made five previous trips to Scotland and have come away with a W2 L3 record from those games. All three of the defeats happened in Glasgow. If they take another loss there, qualification for the knockout stages would become massively difficult.

Porto started this season in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, but the Dragons were knocked out by Krasnodar in the third qualifying round. Since winning the Europa League title in 2011, they have played 13 games in the competition since then. It is only the three wins from those thirteen games which they have taken (D4 L6). In the group stage of the Europa League, the reading is a little better for them having taken a W6 D2 L1 record. They have taken three wins from their four previous group stage away games.
