Porto will host Bayer Leverkusen in a UEFA Champions League fixture at the Estadio do Dragao on Tuesday. With one win from their opening two games, the visitors are currently occupying second position in Group B of Europe’s elite club football competition, while Porto are languishing at the bottom of the four-team table, yet to open their account. The hosts are heading into the match on the back of a dominant 4-1 win over SC Braga in a Portuguese Primeira Liga match on Saturday. Leverkusen, meanwhile, were thrashed 4-0 by Bayern Munich in a Bundesliga game, on the same day. 

Porto began their 2022-23 European campaign with a dramatic 2-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid on September 7, before suffering a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Club Brugge six days later. However, the Portuguese outfit have made a good start to their Primeira Liga title-defence, having won six of their opening eight games to be sitting at the third position in the standings. In their last outing against second-placed Braga, goals from Evanilson, Stephan Eustaquio, Pepe and Galeno helped the Dragons secure all three points at home.

However, in the European stage, Gerardo Seoane’s side have managed to register one win and a defeat thus far. Their lone victory came against Atletico Madrid (2-0), courtesy of goals from Robert Andrich and Moussa Diaby in September.
