The Porto team will challenge the Barcelona team in a 2e ronde UEFA Champions League in Estádio Do Dragão Stadium, Porto on Wednesday, October 04, 2023. For streaming coverage of Porto vs Barcelona, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Barcelona, the legendary football team from Spain, will face a tough challenge when they visit Porto’s headquarters in the second match of Group H of the 2023/24 Champions League. This match will take place on Wednesday 4 October. After destroying Antwerp 5-0 in the first match, Xavi’s team is very confident of achieving another victory in the face of this tough opponent.
Porto is one of the most successful football teams in the Champions League, winning twice in 1987 and 2004. However, since then, they have not been able to repeat this feat. Last season, they were only eliminated in the group stage after losing twice to Barcelona.
Barca, on the other hand, is one of the strongest candidates for the Champions League title. They have won this competition five times, most recently in 2015. This season, they have shown tremendous improvement under the guidance of Xavi, who has led his team to play with a beautiful and effective attacking style.
Porto are experiencing major difficulties in terms of performance ahead of this match. They just lost 0-1 to Benfica in the domestic league, Primeira Liga, Portugal so they dropped to third place in the standings. They are also the team that has scored the least goals among the league’s top five teams, with just 10 goals in seven games.
Barcelona is an unbeaten team in La Liga with six wins and two draws in eight matches. They are also the team that has scored the most goals in this league with 19 goals. This is mainly thanks to the perfect collaboration between Joao Felix and Robert Lewandowski, the two best strikers in the world at the moment.
In the Champions League, Barcelona is no less convincing. They crushed Antwerp 5-0 in the first match, where Felix scored two goals, while Lewandowski scored one goal. With performance like that, Lionel Messi’s former club will have no difficulty continuing to collect points ahead of Porto.
In the history of meetings, Barcelona has always dominated Porto. They have won all their last four matches, of which three were won by a margin of at least two goals. With high performance like now, it will not be difficult for the team based at Camp Nou to maintain this impressive record.
Moreover, Porto will reportedly lack too many pillars due to injury problems faced by players such as Pepe, Marcano, Evanilson, Veron and Sanusi. This made their team weak and less unified and unable to withstand the strength of the visiting team.
