FC Porto hosts Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of the Europa League 1/16 finals. The match will be played on Thursday, February 27th at Estádio do Dragão (Porto)
Porto managed to get a rather acceptable result in the first leg. Yes, it lost. But it lost minimally and scored a goal. After the game in Leverkusen, the Dragons wanted to earn three points in a home game with an outsider of the Portuguese championship, Portimonense, without wasting much energy. And they almost paid for it. First, the visitors did not score a penalty at the end of the first half. And then they successfully fought back until the 87th minute. Still, the class is the class, and Porto put away the opponent.

Bayer gained a great move. It won eight victories in the last nine matches in various tournaments. As for the local championship, it already closes the top five and legs behind the leader by only six points. A home match against the Portuguese was played decently. Bayer was ahead with a 2-0 score. But as you can see, it conceded a very unpleasant goal at the end of the game. The Germans lacked concentration for the last 20 minutes.
As for the attack, the Portuguese have excellent three forwards: Zé Luis, Brazilian Soares, and Malian Marega. They scored 21 goals in the Portuguese championship. These strikers have excellent assistants, who also know how to score. The Colombian Marulanda, for example, scored four goals. So the hosts have someone to upset the opponent’s goalkeeper. But the visitors will certainly not leave a favor unanswered. “Germans” and “order” are synonyms. And in any case, they will play their game. And this game will consist of discipline in defense and throwing the ball behind the backs of Porto’s defenders, where Alario and Volland can cheat anyone and score a goal. By the way, the first one opened the scoring in the German match. I won’t even begin to predict who will advance to the next round. But the opponents are likely to exchange goals.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
