The football teams Porto and Dinamo Zagreb are going to meet on the 21th of Novemberat the UEFA Champions League 2013. FC Porto are extremely famous for being redoutable opponents on their home soil, and the visit of GNK Dinamo Zagreb, who have extended their number of consecutive Champions League losses to ten, is the perfect way to underline the value of Porto.
Dinamo followed their opening loss with two more defeats, once in Kyiv and then at home to PSG. On the other hand, in Paris they were unbeaten, and now they must obtain at least a draw to still hope for the third position.
Regarding their previous head-to-head confrontations, Dinamo have lost all the last five matches in Portugal. Moreover, they failed to score a single goal, conceding 11. The most recent visit of Dinamo in Portugal ended in a 2-0 loss to SL Benfica in the 2004/05 UEFA Cup group stage.
On the other hand, Porto has achieved a very nice performance in Zagreb. They won at home with 3-0 in the 1998/99 season of the Champions League and with 1-0 in the first round of the 1983/84 European Cup Winners.
All in all, given the statistics and the latest performances of the teams, I am going to place a bet on Porto’s victory. I bet 20 units at 1.18. The odds I used are from William Hill.
