Arsenal continued their fine form in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at home to Brentford as they climbed to the top of the table on goal difference after their rivals Liverpool and Manchester could only draw 1-1.

Mikel Arteta’s attention will shift to the Champions League where they have a 0-1 deficit heading to the match on Tuesday.

The focus for the Gunners will be to make a good start with dynamic play designed to break down the Porto low block and pragmatic approach.

They will seek to leverage the vociferous Emirates advantage, that has seen Arsenal turn their home turf into a fortress and has football predictions backing them for a win under the lights on Tuesday night.

Porto Looking to Hold On to their One-Goal Lead and Upset Arsenal at the Emirates

Porto warmed up for the trip to the Emirates Stadium with a convincing 0-3 win away to Portimonense in the Liga Portugal.

The win at Portimonense followed another commanding 5-0 win over Benfica last week as Porto closed the gap to the top to within 7 points of leaders Sporting and six points behind second-placed Benfica.

With a one-goal lead from the first leg, football bet predictions show that Porto will be a difficult proposition for Arsenal to break down.

They will look to be pragmatic and close all the spaces and gaps in their defensive by playing narrow and deep when they do not have the ball and attack on the counter when they win it back. Free football predictions show that this approach will give Arsenal problems.
