Tipster’s Angle

Lazio face an uphill task to come back from a goal down. They will most likely take the game to the visitors, who we expect to sit back and absorb the pressure and wait for quick breaks. Porto have the advantage and will be content with a draw, but the team that scores first will determine the game’s outlook.

If Lazio score first, Porto will hunt for that all-important equalizer. If Porto gets on the front foot first, Lazio will push more men forward, leaving them vulnerable at the back. Here are our tips for Lazio vs. Porto:

Tip: Either Team to Win @ 1.336

A draw will mean that Lazio will exit the tournament, and they will push to win this game in front of their home fans. If Porto get a goal first, Lazio will most likely throw caution to the wind to get an equalizer, as they will be under pressure to deliver.

The pressure is on both sides— Lazio to win and Porto to take this match beyond doubt in the early stages. Either team to win is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.336 odds.

Tip: Goal In Both Halves @ 1.8

Lazio will come flying out of the blocks early, and if they can keep the pressure on, the chances of them scoring in the first half are high. We expect multiple goals in this encounter, in both halves, too, just like the first leg.

The pressure is on both teams to win this time around, so chances will be far from few. Goal in both halves is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.8 odds.


Porto seem to have the advantage in this tie after winning the first leg by 2 goals to 1. There are no certainties in football, so the game can go either way in a twinkling of an eye. The Stadio Olimpico is known for its incredible atmosphere, so we expect a lively football game.
