of September will be held all 16 matches of the second round of the
Champions League’s group stage. This time two matches will be held
in Russia, France, Spain and Italy.
we present your attention one of the most interesting matches of this
round. This is a calendar match of the 7th
group G – defending champion of France Monaco and the 3rd
winner of the Portuguese championship Porto.
France (the head coach Leonardo Jardim)
weeks ago during the first round the Monegasques had played in
Leipzig against the vice-champion of Germany and had earned one point
(1:1). And on last Friday the team of Leonardo Jardim in Lille had
devastated Lille (0:4). Radamel Falcao was the author of the double.
Now the forward has 11 scored goals and became the main challenger
for new Golden Shoe.
Jardim’ bid (4-4-2):
– Touré, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Ghezzal, Fabinho, Moutinho, Lem
– Falcao, Jovetić;
Portugal (the head coach Sérgio Conceição)
contrast to its nearest opponent the hosts of Dragão had suddenly
lost the first match of the group stage to Beşiktaş (1:3). We doubt
that the champion of Turkey is stronger than Porto. But,
nevertheless, according to the results of the first round Beşiktaş
became the only leader of the 7th
group. Porto is now the main underdog.
Conceição’ bid (4-4-2):
– Ricardo, Felipe, Marcano, Telles – Corona, Óliver Torres,
Danilo, Brahimi – Marega, Aboubakar;
Friday during the calendar match of the national championship the
hosts of Dragão had ruined Portimonense (5:2). The left winger
Yacine Brahimi became the author of the double. But now Porto will
face the meeting with absolutely different opponent. And the team of
Sérgio Conceição is not a favorite. It is an underdog.
– 2.05, draw – 3.50, Porto – 3.40;
Monaco to win – odds 2.13 5Dimes
