RB Leibzig 6/5 to beat Porto in Tuesday’s Champions League clash

Competition: Champions League

Market: RB Leipzig to beat Porto

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet365

The Champions League is back this week with Europe’s top sides battling it out to escape their groups. The third game week is a vital one for every team, with gaps starting to appear between the top and bottom sides in each group. With this in mind, RB Leipzig host Porto on Tuesday evening with both sides looking to chase down Besiktas at the top of the group.

Rb Leipzig have struggled massively in this season’s Champions League campaign, as they are winless so far. A victory over Porto would see them rocket back into contention to progress from the group, but a loss to their opponents coupled with a victory for Besiktas over Monaco would see Leipzig five points shy of Porto and eight short of Besiktas, which may prove insurmountable.

The visitors come in the shape of Porto and they find themselves in second place in the group. One victory and one defeat has been a fairly good return on their campaign so far, and they are putting themselves in a decent position to get out of the group and into the knock-out stages. A win over Leipzig would send morale skyrocketing, while it would set them up well for the return leg in Portugal in the next game-week. However, home advantage plays a massive part in the Champions League, and Bet365 are giving Leipzig odds of 6/5 to beat Porto.
