The Champions League tie between Malaga and Porto hangs in the balance after the latter edged the first leg 1-0 on their own patch, although the fact that the Spaniards failed to grab a vital away goal means their Portuguese opponents are Betfred’s 2/7 favourites to reach the next stage.
Malaga are 7/2 at bet365 and that looks a touch chunky despite their muted performance in the Estadio do Dragao.
They adopted a defensive approach that night but one positive they can take is the fact that they conceded just once despite Porto dominate possession throughout. Subsequently, Manuel Pellegrini’s men will be confident of coming out on top at La Rosaleda, where they’re overpriced at 9/5 (Totesport) to prevail on the night.
More specifically BetVictor post 17/2 against Malaga sneaking it 1-0 to take it to extra time and it’s 16/1 at bet365 for the clash to go to penalties, which isn’t out of the question in such a finely poised contest.
Malaga to qualify – 7/2 (bet365)
