Porto vs Young Boys: Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

Porto vs Young Boys Europa League
Porto vs Young Boys, Europa League, Estádio do Dragão

Porto welcome Young Boys of Berne to the Estadio do Dragao for the opening fixture in Group G. Both sides competed in last season’s Champions League group stage.

Our Betting Tips

Porto will be starting this Europa League campaign with something to prove – and Young Boys lost every single Champions League game away from home last season. There could be goals here.

TOTAL GOALS OVER 3.5

Porto surprisingly lost on the opening day of the Portuguese Primeira Liga season but have not conceded since that game. There could be another clean sheet recorded at the Estadio do Dragao.

PORTO TO WIN TO NIL

Porto may well look to show their dominance straight from the kick off here – and that means that the Young Boys keeper might have a lot to do. The home side could rack up the goals in this one.

Statistics

Head to Head

These two sides have never met in European competition before this match.

Stats

  • The season may have only just begun for most teams, but Porto have already been knocked out one European competition. They surprisingly lost to Russian side Krasnodar on penalties in the third qualifying round of the Champions League.
  • Young Boys qualified for their first ever Champions League group stage last season where they ended up winning just one game – against Juventus.
  • Porto have a rich European heritage having won the European Cup/Champions League twice and the Europa League on two occasions as well. The most recent triumph came in 2011 when they beat fellow Portuguese side Braga in the final.
  • Young Boys eased their way to the Swiss title last season, staying top of the league from the second week of the season and eventually winning by a 20 point margin. They are finding this season a little harder though – they currently sit second in the table having already lost two games.

Our Prediction for Porto vs Young Boys

A home win for Porto

Porto fans will still be angry that they will have to watch Europa League football while their arch rivals Benfica get to compete in the group stage of the Champions League. But a home win here might ease their pain.
