Copenhagen are strongest team in Denmark without any doubts and in this season are doing great job to defend their title there, in Champions league meanwhile have a really hard task to reach knockout stage, after four rounds are at third spot in group G with five points less than leaders Leicester and two less than second placed Porto, tonight they awaiting Porto and in case of victory would get one step closer to second stage but they must show some remarkable skills tonight to overcome one of the strongest teams from Portugal. In previous two rounds in domestic league they achieved two victories over Aalborg and Sonderjyske while in 4th round of Champions league earned one point after goalless draw against Leicester. In this season they suffered only one defeat and it was in their duel with English Champions in England with narrow result, i believe that tells us enough about their form in this campaign and for sure aren't without chances in this game. In first meeting with Porto in this season they got a draw in Portugal, now in front of their fans must win, it won't be easy at all but only victory can give them a chance for knockout stage. Hosts were decent in attack so far in champions league with five goals scored in four games while in domestic league are most effective team with 39 goals scored and in defense were pretty good, they have quality to save their own net here and i doubt that will conceded tonight. Defender Boilesen (0/0), midfielder Amankwaa (5/0), forwards Santander (15/5) and Cornelius (14/6) will all stay out of action due to injuries.
Porto on the other side are coming to this match after elimination from Cup by lower ranked side after penalties, that was their third defeat in this season, beside that last negative result they were defeated only two more times, here in Champions league only Leicester took all three points against them after narrow victory while in Portugal league Sporting was only side which managed to outplay them. Porto must end that mini streak of two matches without victory, in previous round of domestic league divided points with leaders Benfica and now are at second spot at the table with five points less then them, for sure are one of main contenders for the title and have great team, here must at least avoid defeat to retain current spot which leads them into knockout stage. Guests scored only four goals in four rounds of group stage while in domestic league were much better in offense, despite here are favorites in front of them is decent side which have amazing season and it won't be easy at all to collect points here in Denmark, they must show some pretty good offensive skills to break this defense but i doubt that we'll see plenty of goals in this meeting. Defender Layun (10/0), midfielder Ruben Neves (7/0) and forward Brahimi (5/1) are all injured and will remain sidelined for this game.
Copenhagen proved their quality in this campaign, they are now focused on Champions league since in Denmark are dominating and shouldn't have bigger issues to defend a title, here must play on really high level to overcome Porto which didn't impressed with performances in last game in domestic Cup but still are favorites to win and secure placement into knockout stage, here i don't expect much goals, it will be a hard game for both sides and under 2.25 is in my opinion safest option.
