Porto vs. Arsenal Betting Prediction

Arsenal versus FC Porto should be one of the most exciting soccer matches this week. Arsenal has some serious advantages since their fans will be going crazy in the stands.

Not only that, but the Gunners are dominating opponents, blasting them with shots on goal. Still, it’s difficult to back Arsenal for the regulation win.

FC Porto is playing as well and we must question the validity of Arsenal’s win over Sheffield, a team that should probably be in the English Championship League. Porto won’t take the regulation victory. They will force a draw that sends the Portuguese Liga team into the UCL Quarterfinals.
