Porto vs RB Leipzig by JuanO
The hosts from Portugal, FC Porto, are currently in first place in Liga NOS after 10 games and are looking thoroughly dominant, with 9 wins, a draw and +24 goal difference, Azuis e brancos are looking like very serious contenders for the title this season. Porto's newly appointed coach Sérgio Conceição tweaking a few things in attack made what looks like one of the most potent attacking setups in Europe so far this season. But even though the forwards are looking great, Conceição has problems in the opposite side of the field. Goalkeeping of Porto has been a problem for the head coach. During the beginning of the season, veteran Iker Casillas used to stand between the sticks, but after a few howlers and huge mistakes he was replaced by a way less experienced and skilled goalie Jose Sa. He's 24 and has never played in such a high level, which has showed in a 3:2 loss against this same Leipzig team two weeks ago. Porto are not too good at chasing the ball when opposition are controlling it and stopping opponents from creating their chances in front of the goal, where Leipzig come in with several top class playmakers.
Rasenballsport Leipzig are showing that last season wasn't just a miracle, and are in the third place of Bundesliga so far. Leipzig were showing form with 4 consecutive wins in the Bundesliga and a win against Porto in Champions League, but two rough losses against Bayern took a little hit on their confidence. With Sabitzer on the right wing and Forsberg on the left wing, full backs of Porto, which aren't of the fastest kind, are going to have a hard time defending and denying the chances Leipzig will be trying to create, and with a number nine like Timo Werner, you can be sure that one of these chances are going to result in a goal to the visitors. But Leipzig's defenders are known to do a lot of individual mistakes, which Porto should use to their own advantage. Defensive midfielder Stefan Ilsanker will miss today's game through injury.
