Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Veltins-Arena
Match date: 09/18/2018 at 21:00

The encounter of the vice-champions of Germany and the champions of Portugal in the first round of the Champions League Ggroup D will determine of the favorites of the quartet. the guests are currently closer to the status, who have started in domestic championship much better than the opponents.

In three starting Bundesliga matches Schalke lost thrice. The Royal Blues still cannot recover from the departure of the main players – Kehrer, Goretzka and Howedes. And last season’s second place is more because of the opponents failure than because of Tedesco men’s strength. In any case Schalke are still not ready to perform on the highest level.

Porto got into the Champions League as the winners of the Portuguese championship. After three years of Benfica’s hegemony the Dragons finally managed to regain the title. They are fourth now, having gained nine points in four matches. Conceicao’s men last week had a cup match against Chaves, which ended with a score of 1:1. Everything indicates that the Portuguese club is purposefully preparing for the UCL match.

The hosts are considered to be slight favorites of the match. But they haven’t felt the taste of a victory for a long time now, while Porto earn three points in almost every match. Besides, the Portuguese are experienced European fighters. they should not lose their starting match in the UCL.
