          Royal Antwerp vs Porto Predictions, Tips & Stats

          Porto and Royal Antwerp will clash in Belgium this Wednesday in the Champions League with both sides sitting in contrasting bouts of form in the Champions League after two defeats in a row for the Belgian Pro League side.

          Not much was expected of Antwerp in this group with the likes of Porto and Barcelona to meet with and they have struggled tremendously. Last time out in Europe, they ended up losing a two-goal lead to eventually lose 3-2 to Shakhtar Donetsk after Arbnor Muja scored after three minutes in the game. Michel-Ange Balikwisha also scored that day before three second half goals from the Ukrainian side.

          Antwerp also suffered a 5-0 loss to Barcelona on matchday one in Spain, and they also drew three games 0-0 in between these two Champions League games, meaning only two goals were scored in those five matches during September and early October.

          The club returned to winning ways after a 4-1 victory over Eupen shortly after, as Arthur Vermeeren, Balikwisha and Muja all scored once more from the 12 shots on target that day.

          However, once again, Antwerp failed to win two games in a row after a 3-2 loss to Charleroi on the road, where Jurgen Ekkelenkamp and George Ilenikhena scored a goal each.

          As for Porto, they are currently third in the Primeira Liga and trail Sporting Lisbon at the top by three points after suffering a loss to Benfica a few weeks back. Porto would return to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Portimonense last time out. On the other hand, despite still well in a title race early on, the club have scored just 11 goals from eight games so far, which is one of their worst records in recent times.

          Royal Antwerp team news

          Antwerp picked up a few injuries in their loss to Charleroi and they will now be without Keita in this game, while Wijndal also faces a late fitness test. Toby Alderweireld is also set to feature at the back once more and he has already scored one goal against Porto in his career. Ekkelenkamp is also set to feature in midfield after his goal in midweek, and he should feature alongside Vermeeren. Balikwisha, Janssen and Muja should all feature in the usual forward three for the club, as Gyrano Kerk misses out after coming off the bench only to get injured. Alhassan Yusuf has now returned too and we should see George Ilenikhena in the attacking setup as well after his goal last weekend.

          Porto team news

          Porto were in cup action during the week and made a few changes to their side, so we should see some names come back in. Mehdi Taremi missed out in that game and should now feature here with Evanilson likely to feature up top as well after his goal last time out in the league. Pepe and Baro are set to feature on the wings once more as well, but Porto could be without Varela and Gonzalaez in midfield after coming off with injuries during the week. Ivan Jaime and Toni Martinez could feature at some stage in this game Danny Loader and Andre Franco are set to miss out in this game with injuries.
