Is there anything better than mid-week European football? It is the turn of the Europa League this time around as Porto gets ready to host Lyon in the first leg of their Final-16 encounter.
The previous time these two teams met was in the Champions League way back in 2004. Porto was the team that progressed during that encounter but that was so far back that it will not much hold value right now. We have to consider the recent form and also take into account the quality of the opposition in their respective leagues to get a better idea of how they stack up.
The football betting sites have Porto as the favorite to win but not by much. This indicates that even the best football betting sites think the two teams are quite closely matched against each other.
Match prediction and football betting tips for FC Porto vs Olympique Lyon Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Estádio do Dragão, Porto, Portugal on the 9th of March 2022.
Porto has had a tremendous season so far and its only real hiccup has been a failure to progress in the Champions League. However, ever since it got eliminated from that competition, it has been unbeaten in 18 games. Goal scoring has been tremendous and it has scored two or more goals in 14 of those 18 matches. Lyon, on the other hand, has struggled domestically and actually done better in the Europa League.
Both teams are quite good at scoring goals and this could be a high-scoring encounter. However, playing at home is a big advantage to have and Lyon's previous record of always losing in Porto is sure to play on the minds of the visitors as well.
Bet on Porto to win.
