Porto can take advantage of Galatasaray's road woes

Turkish club struggle away from home

Porto supporters could be celebrating a home win
1 of 1

BT Sport Extra, 8pm Wednesday

Galatasaray have not played a Champions League away match for almost three years but the Turkish club were traditionally poor travellers before their European ban and are expected to struggle when they take on Porto at the Estadio do Dragao.

Gala have run up five consecutive home victories this season, including a 3-0 Champions League win over Lokomotiv Moscow which has set them up for a tilt at the knockout stages.

But it has been a different story on the road, where the Turkish champions have lost 4-0 and 3-0 in their last two away matches.

That does not bode well for a trip to Porto, who played well to earn a point against Schalke in their Group D opener.

Sergio Conceicao is without injured hitman Vincent Aboubakar but the Dragons could still have enough to claim three points.
