Atletico Madrid vs Porto Prediction
On the UEFA Champions League 2021/22, Atletico de Madrid and FC Porto face off in the first matchday. In the group of death, which also includes Liverpool and AC Milan, both teams are hungry for a win.
Both teams were knocked out of the competition last season by eventual winners Chelsea. In the round of 16, Atletico Madrid will face Porto in the quarterfinals.
This time, Madrid enters the continental play as Spain’s champions.
Diego Simeone’s team has had a fantastic start to the season, being undefeated through four rounds with three wins and one tie. They were made to sweat against Espanyol over the weekend, and a late goal gave them the victory.
Porto, on the other hand, had a quiet season in second place behind Sporting CP, but still beat Benfica to finish second.
The Dragoes have had a good start to the season, with three victories and two ties in their first five games. They drew with Sporting at the weekend, leaving them four points behind Benfica.
Atletico Madrid vs Porto Head To Head
Atletico Madrid and Porto have met six times in total, all of them in the UEFA Champions League. Both teams have two victories and two ties.
Atletico Madrid won 2-0 in Spain and 2-1 in Portugal in their last match in the group stage of the 2013/14 season.
With six victories, two draws, and two loses from ten meetings, Atlético de Madrid has a respectable home record versus Portuguese clubs.
Porto has plenty of experience playing in Spain, but they have won six and drew two of their 22 visits, losing 14 of them.
Atletico Madrid vs Porto Prediction Betting Tips
Both teams have a reputation of making quiet beginnings to campaigns, which they want to avoid given the composition of their respective groups.
Without a question, Atletico has the better team and a strong home record, but the visitors should not be overlooked.
Simeone’s defense is also not what it used to be, and we’ve seen it breached several times at the stadium in the past season.
Porto are a capable team, and Mehdi Taremi, in particular, might pose a threat to Simeone’s back four.
Both teams to score is our top bet for this Champions League match, with Atletico Madrid prevailing by a slim margin at the end of 90 minutes.
