MALAGA GO TO THE NEXT ROUNDFinal result: 1 - 2
Profit: 18.00 - 9 = 9
In my opinion Malaga is favorite of this tie and for sure have more chances to take promotion to next round of the Champions League. I see more chances than bookies for this team.. @2.00 in Bet365 look like very good bet to play. I must try it.
Malaga in previous season go to the Champions League and this is not one season luck, this team is very consistent and in this moment is in TOP4 in Primera Division. Only 2 points less than Real Madrid after 17 rounds. Manuel Pellegrini is very experience coach and you see that in results. Malaga in group with Milan, Zenit and Anderlecht after three rounds have 9 points and not conceded a single goal. In last three rounds, three goals draws, but player not been 100% motivated. Malaga have many classy, experience players in team like Joaquin, Saviola or Santa Cruz - I don't see problems with pressure or something like that.
FC Porto in this season is not that strong like in previous years in my opinon, in league is on the second place. In Champions League took second place in group with PSG. Easy group, because Dinamo Kiev and Dinamo Zagreb is not this level. When you look on the Porto strikers, you don't see that classy players and I see huge troubles for this team with goal scoring. Vitor Pereira is not that experience coach and this is next advantage for Malaga.
Better league, better coach, better squad - why Malaga is not favorite here?

Look for the post from the same game by mantukas1987 AWFULLY
The point is not the tip itself, but the contest "Most Hits" in which he will be placed among the top 3, thanks to this terrible tip.
This was the very worst pick i ever made.. OF course Porto is so much better.. Atletico Madrid is better than Malaga by far and almost every time they meet Porto, they lose big time. Porto is in great shape and if you saw the game against PSG, they lose because of defense errors only. They are a superior team and this one would be a quite easy round for them, you will see
elsewhere...why La Liga is better than Liga Zon?! just one reason: Barça and Real are better and more financial breathel than Porto and Benfica. BUT, none of the other teams are better than them! Valencia and Atl Madrid are worst than the two Portuguese Giants!
I'm disappointed Poetik...very bad analysis of FC Porto! James Rodriguez and Jackson are not classy forwards?! Yes they had an easy group...nevertherless...
Just to let you know, Saviola, first team striker of Malaga was dismissed from Benfica...
And FC Porto is a regular CL quarter finals...when did you see Malaga or their key players in that?!
Lucho, Moutinho, James and Jackson will crush Malaga.
P.S. I hate FC PORTO!
Historically speaking, Porto is a giant near to Malaga. They have 2 champions leagues, 2 Uefa league cups, 2 world club cups. In recent years, they won everytime they faced a spanish opponent. in 2008-2009, they beat Atletico madrid 2-2 on agregatte, in 2009-2010 they smashed Atletico 5-0 on agregatte, and in 2010-2011, they eliminated sevilla and villareal, and won the uefa cup.
Besides Barça and Real Madrid, Porto has a better team than every spanish club. Saviola has been downgradin every since he left barcelona, and never was a threat to Porto when he played for Benfica, winning one championship and loosing 2 for them.
Hulk and Falcão left, but they were replaced by james rodriguez and jackson martinez. the latter has even a better stats than falcao in his first year, this far. He is second on the best scorer list with less 3 goals, but with less penaltys, 6 to 1 !! James is a talented player that has been linked to giant's such as Manchester United.
Porto is second in liga, but with less one game, they have no defeats and only 6 goals conceded.
They took 2 on the group, but with an unlikely circunstance, 'cause the goolkeeper made an epic fail on PSG second goal, and it is important to notice that. Porto has been very solid, and only lost 2 games this season, one with PSG and Braga in the national cup, where they changed 7 players.
So, i only see Porto losing for a giant such as Real, Barça, Bayern or Juventus. But, let's see... we're still far from the games dates so...if nothing else change till then, i'm sorry but i have to desagree with your analyses.
Porto won all matches this season at home, Jackson Martinez scored 10 goals in 11 matches - yep they don't have classy striker lol. Coach is maybe not experienced, but it Porto style. He was assistant to Villas-Boas as the latter was assistant to Mourinho and Villas Boas won EL as inexperienced coach...
Moutinho and Lucho Gonzalez are equal at least to any of Malaga central midfielders. On the left wing Porto have James Rodriguez who scored 7 goals in 10 matches.
Dinamo Kiev have in fact very good team comparable with Zenit (before Hulk and Witsel transfers, but both players were very poor in CL), Milan was in worst form in years when played against Malaga.
What is more, Real know they don't catch Barca so their matches in the league look like friendlies, nothing to read from that about Malaga strenght. Above all taking out Real, Barca and Atletico and Spanish league is dreadful, not by far better than Portuguese.
There is also possdiility of Malaga being banned for financial reasons from next European Cups...
In fact they will receive money for getting through group stage, so it will be fine with them in that regard, so not bigger motivation here.
As for pure sport class teams are equal and Porto have more experience on such stage. Bookies are right, Porto have slight advantage here.
