Arsenal vs Porto Predicted Lineups & Preview

FC Porto is preparing for their next match in London, where they will play Arsenal. They defeated rivals Benfica 5-0 over the weekend in an incredible triumph. But following their victory over Arsenal, they believed they were underappreciated for their skilful use of tactics to upset Mikel Arteta’s team.

It is thought that the recent victory over Benfica makes a big message. Still, certain parts of the Portuguese press have implied that Benfica’s lacklustre play was the reason for the win. Gabriel Martinelli has raised the stakes before Arsenal’s matchup with Porto in the Champions League second leg on Tuesday.

Galeno’s incredible strike in the 94th minute of the first leg put the Gunners down. Though Mikel Arteta’s team was considered a heavy favourite to make it to the round of eight, they will need to perform at their highest level to defeat the Portuguese powerhouses at the Emirates the following week.

However, their recent offensive success has demonstrated that they are more than capable of handling the challenge. Though the Gunners still need to overcome a one-goal disadvantage, Martinelli appears to believe so, as the Brazilian concedes the team is sure they can make it to the quarterfinal.

While promoting the prospects for advancement for his side, he made that apparent. Arsenal has not recorded a shot on target in a UEFA Champions League match after the first leg for just the second time ever (since 2003–04). The first instance was away against Barcelona in the last 16 of the competition in March 2011.

Following Real Madrid in February 2010, Bayer Leverkusen in March 2014, Celtic in March 2013, and Arsenal in February 2018, Arsenal is just the fifth team in the history of the UEFA Champions League to lose five straight round-robin matches. Read till the end to find out Arsenal vs Porto Predicted Lineups.

This season in the UEFA Champions League, Galeno of FC Porto has contributed to eight goals and three assists, more than any other player. His strike, which came in at 93:22, was their most recent victory in the competition (for the period between 2003 and 2004, excluding overtime).

Going into this intense UCL RO16 Leg 2, Arsenal has a win probability of 45%, whereas Porto also has a win probability of 30%.
