Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the Lyon vs. Porto picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining Spotrac, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Porto vs. Lyon, Eimer is backing over 2.5 goals at -145 odds. Both teams showed off the potency of their offenses over the weekend. Lyon put up four goals in a Friday win. Two days later, Porto also tallied four goals in a win of its own. The teams combined to allow three goals in those games, as offense is clearly the strength of both clubs.
Porto is averaging 2.52 goals per game in its domestic league, where it is the second-highest scoring team in Primeira Liga. Across all competitions, 10 of its last 13 games have seen over 2.5 total goals scored. Porto is explosive in the attacking third, but it has also played plenty of matches in recent months, and that fatigue is starting to appear defensively.
Meanwhile, Lyon has been involved in many high-scoring affairs in Europa League play. Four of its six UEL games have gone over 2.5 goals, with an average of 3.5 total goals scored in those matches. The team also possesses talented strikers up front, which has Eimer confident in the over hitting.
"Lyon has two of the top scorers in Ligue 1, Moussa Dembele and Romain Faivre, who will be looking to help this team make a run against a strong Porto squad," Eimer told Spotrac. "Lyon has scored in eight of its last 10 competitions while also conceding in six of those matches."
