Everyone will be siding with Porto on this one, as Arsenal will be resting key players such as Fabregas, Adebayor, Van Persie, Sagna, Clichy and Toure. Porto have won their last 6 games, while Arsenal struggled against Wigan and almost lost thanks to Eboue, so Porto look favourites to win this one. However, I think Porto's streak will end as the Arsenal kids will look to improve on a dismal display against Burnley in the Carling Cup where they could not finish with so many clear cut chances, and they will at least get a draw out of this one.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Arsenal +0/0.5 @ 1.980 = $9.90

agree with roland, except the "dismal" part. the carling cup kids played some wonderful stuff on the day, but were undone by burnley, who were in top form, and finished their few chances. arsenal created more than 5 clear-cut opportunities, and had bendtner showed the finishing of ian wright, we'd have won by a clear margin, and that's no exaggeration. porto might be strong at home, but they are probably only slightly better than arsenal's reserves. i think arsenal definitely have enough in them to at least get a draw, so i'm backing them.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on arsenal +0/0.5 @ 1.98 = $9.90
