Europa League: Dortmund vs FC Porto

Dortmund vs FC Porto Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first leg of the 1/16 finals in the UEFA Europa League, Borussia Dortmund host FC Porto. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Borussia Dortmund vs FC Porto.


Borussia Dortmund are the second best team in Germany and they are one of the main favorites to win the UEFA Europa League. It’s hard to believe that they win the title in Bundesliga, so they will focus on this competition and try to win this trophy. They finished the group phase at the second position, but they have already qualified after 4 rounds and didn’t care about the last two matches in group and both lost. Dortmund started this year amazing and they are still unebaten. Home team had a very good record against Portuguese opponents and they have won all three home games against teams from Portugal.

FC Porto finished the group phase of the UEFA Champions League at the 3rd position and continue to play in this competition. They had a very good chance to reach the knockout, but they lost the last two matches, so Chelsea and Dynamo Kiev went through. Porto stand at the 3rd position in Portuguese league and they are still in the race for the title. In the previous round they beat Benfica 1-2 in the big derby and now they have only 6 points less than leader Sporting. Big blow for visitors are suspension of their two very important players: defender Pereira and midfileder Danilo.
