Porto The Pick In Dublin Final

Live on Five: Wed 19.45: In the all-Portuguese Europa League final, Porto are the pick at 8/15 (Stan James) to lift the trophy.

It’s an all-Portuguese affair in the Europa League final as Porto tackle the tournament’s surprise package, Braga but it’s the former that have to be fancied to take home the trophy and bookies emphatically agree so Stan James’ 8/15 is the best price available for Andre Villas Boas’ side to add a European crown to their domestic league and cup double.

Braga have performed tremendously in Europe this term, beating the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Seville at home before eliminating Benfica in the last four but their best work has undoubtedly come on their own patch where they are incredibly hard to break down and without the benefit of home advantage in Dublin, they look far more vulnerable.

Porto also have the attacking tools to break down their opponents’ stubborn rearguard, with strike duo Hulk and Falcao in rampant form both in the league and in this competition. The latter has struck 15 teams in his last ten outings in all competitions and in that kind of form he surely has a strong chance of adding to his tally at some stage, an outcome William Hill quote at 6/5.

Porto’s prowess going forward suggests that they will score at least twice (4/6, Coral) and with the favourites hardly water tight at the back, particularly in the Europa League, in which they have conceded in three quarters of their matches, it could be a high-scoring affair. Bet365 offer even money for both teams to get on the scoresheet, Stan James chalk 12/5 against it producing more than 3.5 goals and more specifically, it’s 13/1 with Paddy Power for a 3-1 Porto triumph.

Recommended Bets:
Both teams to score – evens (bet365)
Falcao to score at any time – 6/5 (William Hill)
Over 3.5 goals in the match – 12/5 (Stan James)
