Galatasaray v Porto Predictions

Galatasaray ended a four year wait to get their hands on the Super Lig trophy again last year. After a couple of years of Besiktas domestic dominance, Gala reigned supreme last year, but they've struggled in their defence of the trophy so far this term. After 14 games of the new season, Cimbom find themselves in fourth place although there are just six points separating them from current league leaders Istanbul Basaksehir.

Like many other Champions League groups ahead of the final match, Group D has already been tied up ahead of the final matchday and unfortunately for boss Fatih Terim, his side have failed to make it through having picked up just four points from their opening five matches, with all three away games wielding defeats. Given that they're far better on home soil it's no surprise that the Turkish side are favourites here at 11/10 with BetVictor.

Porto are flying at the moment. After breaking Benfica's run of winning the Portuguese Primeira Liga title last season by lifting the trophy for the 28th time in their history, Azuis e brancos are looking to retain the trophy this year and they're in pole position to do exactly that as things stand. With 11 games on the board, they remain top of the table with 27 points, two clear of their rivals Sporting Lisbon, with Benfica down in fourth as things stand.

In the Champions League, Sergio Conceicao's men have been equally dominant in the group stages and have already secured top spot in Group D before this trip to Turkey in midweek. Porto have won four and drawn one of their five games thus far to rack up 13 points and secure that top spot and indeed they've now won their last ten consecutive matches in all competitions. You can back them to stretch that run to eleven games here at 27/10 with Unibet.

Galatasaray v Porto betting tips

Galatasaray are clearly stronger on home soil than they are away in this competition as they've picked up all four of their points so far in front of their own fans at the Turk Telecom Stadium. Porto may have been the strongest team in this group but with top spot secure we can see them resting a few players for this trip to Istanbul ahead of some tricky domestic fixtures in coming weeks. We're backing the sides to cancel each other out for a draw at 14/5 with Betfair.

As is often the case with these dead rubber games, defence can sometimes be a little shaky with less specific work done on the training ground prior to the game. Indeed, both of these sides possess a host of attacking players too, even among the second strings that are likely to play some part in this game. You can back both teams to score in this on Tuesday evening clash at odds of 13/16 with Unibet.
