Porto poised to extend Lokomotiv's scoring problems
Moscow men lack a cutting edge at present
BT Sport Extra, 8pm Wednesday
The Russian champions were brushed aside 3-0 at Galatasaray and registered just one shot on target in their limp 1-0 home defeat to Bundesliga strugglers Schalke.
The hosts lack a cutting edge without injured star striker Fyodor Smolov as his replacement, Portugal’s Euro 2016 hero Eder, has failed to fire and is without a goal in nine appearances since arriving permanently in Moscow.
Porto have kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches, which includes a 1-0 win over Galatasaray on matchday two.
But Porto have drawn their last three Champions League away games, so backing a clean sheet looks a safer wager.
Porto to keep a clean sheet

Fyodor Smolov and Jefferson Farfan are still out. Defender Vedran Corluka is doubtful.
Vincent Aboubakar could miss out. Hernani and Otavio are unlikely to feature.
Both teams have scored in just six of Porto’s last 15 Champions League matches.
