Why you should back Arsenal

Arsenal are coming off a week in which they defeated West Ham 6-0 and Burnley 5-0, giving the Gunners a ton of momentum heading into Wednesday's contest. Both of those matches came on the road, which undoubtedly gives confidence to a team that had a midseason road swoon, failing to win in four consecutive away matches. Meanwhile, Porto have only won one of their last three matches across all competitions, and they struggled in recent UCL contests. The club allowed five total goals over its last two Champions League matches, and only three teams that advanced to the Round of 16 allowed more goals than the eight Porto gave up in UCL group play.

Bukayo Saka leads the offensive attack for Arsenal, and he ranks fifth in goals and sixth in assists in the Premier League. He's been just as productive in the Champions League as no player has more assists than his four. He's scored in four straight matches across all competitions, including back-to-back braces, despite playing under 70 minutes in each. Saka is just one part of the equation for Arsenal as only two teams scored more goals than their 16 across the group stage. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back FC Porto

Porto have been nearly flawless over their last eight home matches across all competitions, winning seven and drawing one. Just four teams scored more goals than their 15 in group play, and their explosive offense is coupled with a streaking defense. Porto have posted clean sheets in each of their last five home matches, which all came in domestic play. The Portuguese club currently ranks third in the Primeira Liga, having won the league title in three of the last six seasons.

Porto can attack you from many different angles as Brazilians Evanilson and Galeno each have four goals in the Champions League. Galeno also has a UCL-leading four assists, while center back Fabio Cardoso often feeds the forwards from the defensive third. Cardoso ranks second in the Premeira Liga in pass completion percentage (91.9%) and his presence will be huge for Porto after he missed three of the team's first four UCL group stage games.
