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.
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.
PORTO TO WIN BY FOUR GOALS OR MORE
Head to Head
These two sides have never met in European competition before this match.
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.
