In Group D of the Champions League the leader Porto welcomes the 2nd Schalke 04 in a very interesting clash at the Estadio Do Dragao. Let’s take a look at it in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Porto are leading this group at the moment, being unbeaten in it. The Portuguese giants have 10 points won and a record of 3 wins and 1 draw. Since their draw against Schalke at the Veltins-Arena in the first round, Porto have achieved three consecutive wins in the group.
The Portuguese club will win this group, if they beat Schalke on Wednesday night. They are aware of this and they know what the odds are tonight against Schalke. If they manage to keep their level of perfromance from the last three games in the group, they are going to be a solid favourite against the German side.
Schalke 04 on the other hand are 2nd in the group with 8 points – just 2 points less than the leader Porto. The Royal Blues are also unbeaten in this group, having a record of 2 wins and 2 draws. Schalke are not doing very well since the start of the season in the Bundesliga, but in the Champions League they are pretty solid so far.
In their last game in the group Schalke 04 achieved a 2-0 win over Galatasaray at home – their second win in the group so far. Guido Burgstaller opened the score for Schalke, while Marc Uth made it 2-0 soon after the halftime break. It’s really strange how Schalke are doing well in the Champions League and in the same time they are struggling so much in the Bundesliga.
These are our winning soccer predictions for today for the Champions League clash between Porto and Schalke 04 at the Do Dragao.
