Correct outcome prediction: Arsenal to Win

For our first FC Porto vs Arsenal prediction, we are predicting that Mikel Arteta's men will win the first leg and take a huge advantage back to the Emirates ahead of the second leg. Arsenal have been in incredible form recently, scoring eleven times in their previous two matches and conceding none. Players such as Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard have been instrumental to the fine form shown by the North London side. Porto's defenders will have to be on top form to keep Saka and co at bay.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Porto in the Liga Portugal this season has scored thirty-seven times in twenty-two matches, just a few goals away from averaging two goals per match. The defence of Porto has been excellent though, conceding just sixteen times in those twenty-two matches, an average of 0.7 goals conceded per match.

How far will Arsenal fans travel to face Porto?

There are many ways to travel from England and Portugal. Several train and bus services link up mainland Europe which would first require Arsenal fans to travel to Paris via train. However, those journeys will take around a full day and we believe that almost all away fans will opt to fly to Portugal.ย 

The flight time between London and Porto in Portugal is around two hours, which is much better than spending more than a full day in a car or on one of Europe's many coaches.
