It should be a pulsating tie at the Estádio do Dragão as Porto take on Spanish neighbours Malaga.

Both sides looked very strong in the group stages of the compeition and had to go up against tough opposition, so will be delighted they have made it to the knockout stages.

They are each in good form coming into this one as well, which means we should be treated to a thrilling tie.

Porto are on a twelve game unbeaten run across all competitions and have scored fifteen goals in their last five league matches, so are certainly in good spirits and winning plenty of games.

The Portuguese outfit are capable of going a long way in the Champions League this campaign and with confidence so high, they will look to take a healthy lead to Spain with them for the second leg of this tie.

You can be sure that the atmosphere inside the stadium will be electric on Tuesday evening and Porto must use that to their advantage and come flying out of the traps. They are currently the 17/20 favourites to win here.

Jackson Martinez is the man that Porto rely on to come up with something special in front of goal and with as he has netted 23 times across all competitions this campaign, the Colombian should be full of confidence.

Martinez is at 9/2 to break the deadlock.

Highly-rated midfielder Joao Moutinho is also sure to feature and this is his chance to show just what he can do on the biggest stage of them all.

Make no doubt about it, Porto are a very strong side and capable of coming out on top here.

As for Malaga, they were not having the best of seasons in La Liga, but they have finally shown a bit of consistency and now occupy a space in the top four.

With the Spanish outfit on an unbeaten run of four-games, spirits should be high and they will be confident that they can grab an all-important away goal in Portugal.

Not many people were expecting too much from Malaga in the Champions League this season as they lost players such as Santi Cazorla in the summer, but they have surprised a few and now the La Liga outfit have made the knockout stages, anything can happen.

Malaga are out at 4/1 to win on Tuesday evening, so it is safe to say they are the underdogs.

Porto are of course a very good side, but not a team that Manuel Pellegrini should be dreading going up against.

If his men can perform on top of their game this week, they could take a superb result into the second leg with them.

It might not be the Champions League tie that everyone is talking about, but with the quality of show and attacking football all but guaranteed, it is tough not to see a cracking game coming from Portugal on Tuesday evening.
