Porto take on the visitors Lokomotiv Moscow at the Estadio do Dragao in the Round 4 fixture of the UEFA Champions League Group D. The match will be played in the eponymous city Porto on Tuesday, November 6th.
After Porto beat Lokomotiv Moscow with a 3-1 score on the away field they are the favourite in the lead-up to their upcoming Round 4 fixture against the Russians. Despite of that victory for the Portuguese though, there were a lot of moments in history when the second match between the teams was completely different. The Dragoes have a great position in the UEFA Champions League Group D right now and are favoured to win the group in the end. If they beat the Russians on Tuesday they will increase their chance of going through to the next round of the tournament greatly. Interestingly, the team of Sergio Conceicao has managed to win with a -2.0 handicap only once so far this UEFA Champions League season. That victory has happened exactly against the Red-Greens for them. Overall, the Azuis e Brancos have scored only a few goals in the group so far and have conceded several goals too. In their last three matches overall Porto beat Maritimo with a 2-0 score, Varzim with a 4-2 score in their Round 2 fixture of the League Cop and Feirense with a 2-0 score. The Dragoes have also had a 1/32-finals fixture of the Taca de Portugal recently where they have beaten Vila Real with a 6-0 score.

After Lokomotiv Moscow had been failing to go through to the UEFA Champions League for a long time this season they have finally managed to get there but have been failing there constantly so far. The Red Greens have been on a four match winning streak though in their local Russian Premier League recently. Furthermore, they managed to beat Yenisey with a 4-1 score in their 1/8-finals fixture of the Russian Cup. It`s worth also noting that the team of Yuri Semin has been scoring a lot of goals lately. However, that has not helped them yet in their UEFA Champions League Group D. The Railroaders have lost all of their matches so far this Champions League season. It is likely that they will not compete for going through to the next stage of the tournament anymore. However, the chances will still be there for them if the Russians beat Porto on Tuesday and Galatasaray two weeks after. In their last three matches Lokomotiv Moscow beat Arsenal Tula with a 3-1 score, Yenisey with a 4-1 score in their 1/8-finals fixture of the Russian Cup and the same Yenisey with a 3-0 score.
Lokomotiv Moscow are likely to risk in their upcoming fixture against Porto because there is no other way for them in the Group D anymore except for that. The main goal for the Railroaders is to score on Tuesday. They have been creating a lot of goal attempts recently but have been struggling to realize them. It is likely that the team of Yuri Semin will manage to draw against the Dragoes in the Round 4 of the UEFA Champions League Group D but not to beat them. After the Red Greens lost to the Portuguese two weeks ago they should show a better performances this time. Even if Lokomotiv Moscow are unlucky on Tuesday they will not lose with a big handicap most likely. Obviously, the team of Sergio Conceicao is the favourite in the lead-up to the upcoming fixture but it will not be an easy game for them. The upcoming match will be a crucial one for the Russians so they will not lose with a big score most likely.
Prediction for the match: Lokomotiv Moscow to win with +1.5 handicap.
