Porto vs Schalke 04
FC Porto hosts Schalke 04 in Group D of the Champions League. Both sides are close to the next round but the hosts will be determined to stay on the top spot.
Porto are in tremendous run of form. The Dragons are doing well both in the domestic games and in the European competitions. They have 8 consecutive victories and have lost for the last time against Benfica away back in the early October. At home they have kept 5 clean sheets in the last 7 games winning in all occasions. Porto are dangerous side and when in form any team may struggle against them.
Schalke returned to winning ways following the heavy defeat to Eintracht. They scored 5 against Nurnberg but the concerns comes from the conceded 2 goals. The team hasn't kept a clean sheet in 6 games and that's a definite reason for concern. Away from home things are not rosy with 5 games winless streak.
Porto are the definite favorites here. They are in great form especially at home but a handicap is highly unlikely as most of their victories come with a 1 goal margin.
