Bayer Leverkusen vs Porto – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Both Bayer Leverkusen and Porto have collected three points each ahead of their Group B encounter at the BayArena on Wednesday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Bayer Leverkusen to Win

New boss Xabi Alonso got his Bayer Leverkusen career off to the perfect start at the weekend when he masterminded a 4-0 victory over Schalke and with confidence at the club restored, a follow up win in the Champions League could be on the cards. With optimism renewed at the Bay Arena, Bayer should have plenty of energy to harness and they can put that to good use against a Porto side that often comes up short on the road in Europa. The new manager bounce should prove powerful here and we recommend siding with Bayer in the match result market.

Moussa Diaby to Score Anytime

Moussa Diaby finally scored his first Bundesliga goal of the season at the weekend when he opened the scoring against Schalke and the French forward looks as though he is going to enjoy life under Xabi Alonso. Diaby found the net in Bayer’s last Champions League home fixture against Atletico Madrid last month and he should be high spirits ahead of another continental test against Porto. With that in mind, he looks well priced to deliver the goods in the anytime scorers market.
