Tip Roma Porto
on 12 February 2019
Roma host Porto in the Champions League this week and both teams will be desperate to pick up an advantage in the first leg of the knockouts. Roma are the better team on paper but this will be a tricky outing. Porto are no pushovers and they have the quality to pull off an upset here. Both teams are in similar form and they have won three games out of their last six. It will be interesting to see how they approach the contest. The last two meetings between these two sides produced a total of five goals and this one should be an entertaining affair as well. Having said that, Porto haven’t lost the last two meetings with Roma and the Italian side will be keen on changing that record here.
Our bet explained
- Porto have scored at least 3 goals in their last 4 matches (UEFA Champions League).
- There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 9 of Roma's last 10 games (UEFA Champions League).
- There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Porto's last 4 games (UEFA Champions League).
Our Roma Porto tip
Both teams will be looking to pick up a win here and neither are expected to sit back and play defensively. They will be looking to score goals and this should be an open contest. There will be a fair few chances for either side and a high scoring game is very much on the cards here. Over 2.5 goals seem quite likely between these two teams.
