Prediction:

With just one game remaining, Porto moved up to nine points, four points clear of Atleti, leaving Brugge, which was already guaranteed a top-two finish, on 10 points.

After Brugge had won three of their first four group games, the game abruptly ended their remarkable run. Before Wednesday, they had not given up a goal in Group B.

Preview:

After losing their first two games, Porto swept to a convincing third straight victory in the group. They appeared defensively frail and made mistakes.

Following a brilliantly weighted through ball from captain Otavio in the 33rd minute, Taremi wasted two early opportunities before scoring the game’s first goal.
