FC Porto take on AC Milan for a match in the Champions League on Tuesday at the Estadio do Dragao.

Both sides have had disappointing starts in their respective campaigns. FC Porto surely would have hoped for more than a single point from two games. The Dragons are in third place in Group B, meaning the pressure for a first win is definitively on.

That said, AC Milan are faring no better – or perhaps even worse. The Rossoneri have endured a nightmare start for their Champions League comeback, having lost their first two games. They have no points whatsoever down in fourth-place.

Primary goal getter

It is difficult to look past Mehdi Taremi, when on the search for a marksman. He seems on a strong run and hit the target 4 times for FC Porto in their last 6 games. Brahim Diaz has managed to hit the target 3 times in the last half dozen matches for AC Milan. It is probably safe to say that they will both be looking to add to his tally here once again.
