Porto vs Monaco Match Analysis and Prediction

The Estadio do Dragao will host an exciting, friendly clash between Portuguese champions Porto and Ligue 1 side Monaco on Saturday, with a kickoff at 10 pm.

Porto continued their fine run of results in preparations for the upcoming campaign as they claimed a 5-1 victory over Arouca last Wednesday.

In a one-sided contest, five players scored goals for Porto: Matheus Uribe, Bruno Costa, Toni Martinez, Wenderson Galeno, and Danny Loader. Before that, Sergio Conceicao’s men kicked off their pre-season matches with a 3-0 victory against Bristol Rovers on July 14 before claiming a hard-fought 1-0 win over Portimonense five days later.

The Primeira Liga champions have won each of their last six games across all competitions, including a 3-1 victory over Tondela in the Taca de Portugal final on May 22.

Monaco failed to make two wins from two last Saturday when the Italian outfit rallied and scored twice in the second half to secure a share of the spoils.

After Aleksandr Golovin and Wissam Ben Yedder put them 2-0 up, Roberto Gagliardini and Kristjan Asllani scored to ensure both sides shared the spoils.

Philippe Clement’s side is now unbeaten in five pre-season games, claiming three draws and picking up victories against Cercle Brugge and Portimonense.

Porto Team News

Porto is set to be without promising youngster Francisco Conceicao, who recently completed a move to Dutch champions Ajax. He joins the likes of Chancel Mbemba, Sergio Oliveira, Vitinha, and Fabio Vieira in leaving the Estadio do Dragao this summer as the mass exodus at the club continues.

Monaco Team News

Meanwhile, Monaco recently secured the services of 25-year-old Breel Embolo from Borussia Monchengladbach and could hand him his debut. Defender Guillermo Maripan is a major doubt for the French side after coming off just before halftime against Inter Milan last time.
