Every Portuguese team is renowned for performing well at home. For instance, FC Porto won eight consecutive home games from Christmas Day 2022 to February 26, 2023.
They lost 2-1 against Gil Vicente, suffered two red cards, and had one goal disallowed for offside in a game that marked the end of their outstanding run at Stadium do Dragao. Despite this, we can’t classify the defeat as a major failure.
They performed admirably in their home games during the Champions League group stage, earning six points from victories over Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen.
They did suffer a 4-0 home loss to Club Brugge, but that was back in September. This Tuesday is Porto’s first home match in the 2023 Champions League, and The Dragons are expecting a great result. Let’s see if Inter Milan will derail their hopes.
The last time an Italian club won the Champions League was 13 years ago. Inter Milan was the group who pulled it off. Nerazzurri haven’t exactly made a big impression on the continent since then. Few people still view them as genuine contenders for the trophy in 2023.
Let’s check the latest picks, Champions League news, stats and Champions League expert picks for Porto vs Leverkusen. We’ve plenty of Champions League predictions for you to consider.
They do, however, have a roster to be proud of. The team of Inter Milan appears to be tremendously strong, with at least one player of the highest caliber at each position on the field. They have had a passable season in terms of both domestic and UCL form.
Although they are the current Serie A winners, Napoli’s fantastic season will likely cause them to finish second this year. This provides them even more incentive to compete in the Champions League as long as they can.
In terms of player quality, FC Porto may not be as strong as Inter Milan, but they are not far behind. They also play at home. Does this imply that they will triumph on Tuesday? They might, but most likely not by much.
