Porto vs Young Boys Match Preview
Porto have been rather convincing in Primeira Liga lately and they now host Young Boys for their Europa League clash on Thursday evening on the back of a four-match winning streak, where they bounced from their Champions League Play-offs exit in the hands of Krasnodar (on away goals in a 3-3 aggregate draw) and bagged 12 points in four outings.
Dragoes have been scoring numbers of goals along the way and we’ve seen them beat Vitória Setúbal (4-0), Benfica (0-2), and Vitoria Guimaraes (3-0) with clean sheets ahead of the International break as well as Portimonense (2-3) in a more thrilling contest after it – where Ivan Marcano netted a last-gasp winner.
Young Boys have bagged 11 goals in their Cup clash against Freienbach (2-11) on Saturday and returned to the winning ways after two consecutive draws, where Red Star Belgrade made their way to Champions League with a 1-1 draw and Luzern snatched a Super League point in a 2-2 thriller.
Gerardo Seoane’s men have been scoring and conceding goals on the regular too and still extended a ten-match unbeaten streak early in the new campaign, which still saw them out of UCL and a point behind league pace-setters Basel after six games. Still, we expect them in a great mood at Estadio Do Dragao and they should be able to do their bit in making it an exciting contest.
We will thus back Porto to turn such a clash their way and we’ll go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 5/2 with bet365, which looks like more than just a lively longshot at this point with both sides enjoying such clashes lately.
We thus hope to see goals and we’re also backing a high-scoring contest, where Over 2.5 Goals FT comes at 17/20 with William Hill. This feels like a great approach to the fixture and comes as the fifth such occasion in six outings across competitions for both sides.
