Porto vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Porto host Bayer Leverkusen at the Estádio Do Dragão in a do or die UEFA Europa League match. The Bundesliga club have a 2-1 lead from the first leg and will be content with a draw to progress.

Porto Form


Porto suffered a 2-1 defeat in Leverkusen but it’s a result that would have pleased the Portuguese club. They were second best for most of the match, were 2-0 down after 57 minutes but secured a vital away goal through Luis Díaz.

Porto’s last match resulted in a 1-0 home win against Portimonense in the Primeira Liga. Sérgio Conceição’s side had 60% possession and 22-6 shots but required a saved penalty and late goal to Alex Telles to secure victory.

Porto City News


Central defender Pepe is the only player missing with injury but close to a return. Danilo Pereira came off the bench in Leverkusen and should start here alongside Otávio who was suspended for the first leg. 

Bayer Leverkusen Form


Bayer Leverkusen have won five games in a row including the 2-1 first leg victory against Porto. Lucas Alario and Kai Havertz put the Werkself 2-0 up but they failed to take advantage and let Porto back in the tie.

Leverkusen defeated Augsburg 2-0 at home on Sunday to keep their winning run going. Moussa Diaby and Nadiem Amiri were on target with the result rarely in doubt.
