Betting Preview: FC Porto vs AS Roma: Home Team Favourites
Portuguese champions FC Porto would be hoping to overturn a first-leg deficit against Italian Serie A giants AS Roma in their quest to reach the last eight of this season’s Champions League.
The former winners host their Italian opponents at the Estadio Dragao with the hope of sealing a quarterfinal spot ahead of Roma who are more experienced in the competition in recent times after reaching the last four in the last campaign.
Italian capital club AS Roma were the surprise team of last season following their run to the semifinals before they were beaten by Liverpool on aggregate in their semifinal tie.
AS Roma would at least be targeting a repeat of last season’s feat in the competition and to achieve this, they have to see off FC Porto.
The Italians have a 2-1 lead from their home leg following the brilliance of young Italian midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo who scored two goals to seal a win over the Portuguese team at home.
It was FC Porto’s first defeat of the competition.
A lone-goal victory will be enough for FC Porto who have a winning odds of 2.04 according to Bet9ja.
A stalemate between both teams and an AS Roma is at the same odds of 3.60.
