Although both of these sides reached the Champions League Round of 16, the group stage wasn’t a smooth ride for either of them. Porto finished 1st in Group B with 12 points but lost two games to Atletico and Brugge. Comparatively, Inter finished 2nd with 9 points while losing to Bayern in both meetings. However, the Inter v Porto betting previews mostly favor the hosts.
These two haven’t played each other in the competition in a long time so UCL’s head-to-head history is kind of irrelevant here. Porto are missing multiple first-time players and none of them has an official return date yet. Inter’s much healthier squad could use this to their advantage. Both sides have multiple defenders out with injuries and we expect the goal total to be over 2.5.
Furthermore, we also think both sides will be able to score. Inter haven’t had much luck with clean sheets lately and they’ll likely concede in this match as well. The odds favor an Inter win by about 50% of possibility. Although we believe that the most likely outcome of this match will be a 2-2 draw. Porto’s recent match data looks better but not enough to give them the edge in Milan.
Lastly, we predict that both halves will feature at least one goal. If you’re interested in additional betting lines, check out our 2023 UCL Round of 16 betting guide. You can use this to build the perfect betting slip. It could certainly help you with preparing for this Inter v Porto matchup.
