Porto look like the form team in the Europa League, hence their status as Sportingbet’s 21/10 favourites in the outright betting and the Portuguese side should make a winning start in their quarter-final tie against Spartak Moscow.
Andre Villas Boas’ men, who accounted for Spartak’s city rivals CSKA in the previous round, are just 4/9 with Stan James to secure a first-leg lead and 1/3 (Coral) to qualify for the last four. However, the visitors can give themselves hope by bagging an away goal in the Estadio do Dragao, where Porto have managed just one clean sheet in six European outings this term and punters can cash-in with William Hill, who offer 11/8 for both teams to find the net.
Benfica are 4/5 with Betfred to get the better of PSV Eindhoven but the Dutch side have been strong on the road in the competition this season and can pick up a result at the Estadio da Luz. The brave can tackle 17/4 about an away victory or alternatively PSV are 6/5 (Coral) to either draw or win and the same firm quote them at 14/5 in their ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
