Porto vs Inter Milan Predictions and Expert Betting Tips

In the previous 5 UCL meetings between Inter and Porto, no team lost at home and there was only one draw at home to Porto in the very first clash back in February 2005. We have looked at the team stats, H2H, team news and more before settling on the following free Porto vs Inter Milan predictions:

Match Result Prediction: Porto to Win

Our first Porto vs Inter Milan prediction is a home win. Porto will miss Otavio but there is plenty of talent that head coach, Sergio Conceicao will call on to drive things forward. They held Inter Milan to a narrow late lead in the first leg but we expect Porto to heat things up a little in this do-or-die second leg. Home win is, therefore, a likely outcome in this game.

Total Match Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Our second Porto vs Inter Milan is on the goals market. We predict this game will yield over 2.5 goals. Inter will have the disadvantage of playing away from home as they fight to cling onto a narrow lead of 1-0 in the first leg. However, since Porto lost the first leg, the hosts have scored 7 goals in three games while Inter has lost twice on the road and scored 3 goals since the narrow victory in the first leg. However, Inter Milan only failed to score in one of their last five, so we fancy the visitors to score at least once in this match.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Inter Milan

The first Porto vs Inter Milan prediction is a 2-1 home win. The last time Porto hosted Inter Milan, the Portuguese side won 2-0 in a charged Estadio do Dragao. This third home game against Inter comes with all sorts of challenges, especially for the visitors who have looked shambolic after the first leg. Inter has scored only one goal in their previous two away games against Porto. Porto has scored in the home games against Inter, a total of 3 goals. We predict a 2-1 victory for Porto.

Porto vs Inter Milan UEFA Champions League Fixture Preview

Porto Preview

Porto lost narrowly when they travelled to Italy to play Inter in the first leg of UCL round 16. The 1-0 defeat leaves the Portuguese side with a chance to topple things in this second leg at home. The loss in the first leg was expected, notably because Inter's current form has been incredible, especially at home. In this second leg, Porto hopes they can build on the momentum they created by holding on till the 86th minute when Inter found the back of the net. Porto was down to 10 men when Otavio was sent off with a second yellow card in the 78th minute, which apparently made things easier for Inter.  Porto had 4 shorts on target, which was the same as inter dispute having only 40% ball possession.

The defeat to Inter was hard on Porto, who were shocked by Gil Vicente at Estádio do Dragão in their next fixture. They have since bounced back, scoring three goals at each time of asking against Chaves and Estoril to get back to winning ways. In front of home support, they will want to continue the momentum against the Nerazzurri. It will not be an easy task as their defence has been found wanting in recent affairs. They have conceded twice against Gil Vicente and Estoril, while Chaves also scored once against them.

Inter Milan Preview

A trip to Portugal to face Porto at Estadio do Dragao, Porto-Portugal comes with some hefty challenges. Inter Milan couldn't do much at home and only found the breakthrough late into the second half, 8 minutes after Porto's Otavio was sent off. Since then, Inter Milan has lost two and won once in three games. All the two losses in the last three were away games, a sign that things could be challenging for the visitors on this trip to Portugal. This will be the third away game against Porto. The previous ones ended 2-0 and 1-1.

Coming into this fixture, Simone Inzaghi will be furious at his side and concerned about their ability to progress in the Champions League. Since their 1-0 victory over Porto, they have dropped points against Bologna and Spezia on the road. Estádio do Dragão will be more hostile in their reception of the Nerazzurri with a place in the Champions League quarter-finals on the line.
