Porto take on the visitors Brugge in the round 2 match of UEFA Champions League. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 13th at Estadio do Dragao (Porto).
Porto wants to be not only No. 1 "at home", but also a significant player in the international arena. The “Dragons” relatively recently, under José Mourinho, sensationally won the Champions League. But, of course, for this club it will be a serious success even just to get into the playoffs. In 2021, this did not work out, but the quartet was painfully difficult, and, having lost to Atlético and Liverpool, the Portuguese were able to take 3rd place in the fight against Milan. And then they regained the status of the champion of their country. In the new season, the wards of Sergio Conceição started against the same Spaniards. In Madrid, a goalless draw lasted almost until the very final whistle. But in the end, it was replaced by a shootout in added minutes, which ended in favor of the “Colconeros”, 2-1.

Brugge are already perceived as the main club in Belgium. The Black and Blues took the Jupiler League title under Clement in 2020 and then were able to defend it. At the height of last season, Philip went to Monaco, but still the team managed to get ahead of the ambitious newcomer, Union Saint-Gillois, and retained the "gold". True, in the new draw, the wards of Karl Hofkens, as for the grand, lose a lot of points. Moreover, they sold their brightest star, De Ketelare. However, this money helped, among other things, return Yaremchuk to Belgium. And Roman immediately began to score. On Wednesday, the club started in another Champions League cycle already, starting at home with Bayer. And he scored against struggling Germans, 1-0!
In 1972, Porto traded victories with Brugge in the UEFA Cup, advancing on goal difference. And in 2016, already in the Champions League group stage, the Dragons won both meetings. It is important for both clubs to show results against a direct competitor. And it is unlikely that such a battle will be spectacular. We bet on "under 3.0 goals".
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
