The battle outside the main championship of the two strongest teams in Portugal will continue in the group stage of the Champions League. Following Benfica, which entered the match on Tuesday, the second match of the Portuguese football, Porto, also takes place in Dragaú. The rival is the champion of Turkey, Besiktas Istanbul.
Porto is not the current champion of his country, but it is the Portuguese club that looks like the favorite of the confrontation. Impressive game form of the Portuguese club at the start of the season. Even taking into account the level of the Portuguese championship, five wins in five starting meetings look brilliant. The goal difference is 12: 0 in five matches, indicating the optimal combination of attack and defense. The Turkish club also held five official matches this season, which scored 10 points. In addition to playing the first round against Antalyaspor, which ended with a score of 2-0, the rest of the games were held in a bitter struggle and at best Besiktas's advantage did not exceed one goal. It is noticeable that the entrance to the season at Besiktas turns out to be quite strained. Given the unimportant statistics of away matches in European competition, it is likely that the trip to Portugal will end for Besiktas defeat. Good Luck!
