Our football match prediction:
Even though many people expected that Leicester City would struggle in the Champions League group stages, the Foxes have been producing terrific displays in the elite competition this season. Claudio Ranieri’s men have already clinched top position in Group G, meaning that they have little to play for in Wednesday’s football game against Porto. Unlike Leicester City, the Dragons face a must-win situation in their final group game as a victory over the Premier League team would see them make it to the last 16 of the elite competition. Porto recorded two wins in previous three games in Group G, meaning that they are on top of their game ahead of Wednesday’s clash against Claudio Ranieri’s charges. The Foxes have been struggling in the national championship of late and seeing that they were beaten by Sunderland in their last league game, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.

Full Mexico international since 2012, Hector Herrera represented his country at the 2014 World Cup. During the summer of 2016 Herrera was heavily linked with a move away from Porto and was reported to have made a personal agreement with Italian side Napoli, but the €25 million asking price proved to be a stumbling block that ended up ruining the deal.
