Porto needs favorable result against City to advance
Four wins on the bounce have confirmed the Cityzens’ spot in the last 16. Manchester City have scored 10 goals and conceded one in this season’s group stage.
Three of those goals came in the 3-1 victory against Porto at home courtesy of goals from Sergio Aguero, Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres.
Manchester City also showed how devastating they can be with the ball in the 5-0 thrashing of Burnley on the weekend. Certainly, they’ll be riding high on confidence following that win.
Porto already have one foot in the round of 16 with nine points from four matches. A point in this game, or a favorable result in fixture between Olympiacos and Marseille would seal the fate of Group C.
Sergio Cenceicao’s side are also in a rich vein of form, having bagged wins in their last five matches. Manchester City possess a flawless record against Porto, with three wins out of as many matches. The Portuguese giants were humbled last time out as well, and a point in this game would leave them as the more satisfied team.
