Porto are aiming to register their first point in this season’s competition following a difficult start that has seen them concede six goals already.
Sergio Conceicao’s side suffered stoppage-time heartbreak against Atletico Madrid on matchday one, before being swept aside 4-0 by Club Brugge on home soil.
The Dragoes must now seek a response, but they have won seven of their last eight home matches against German opposition in the Champions League, including each of the last five.
Meanwhile, Leverkusen recorded a morale-boosting 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid last time out in this competition.
However, that represented one of only two wins Gerardo Seoane’s men have managed from 11 matches in 2022-23, which has already yielded seven defeats.
The omens do not look promising for Die Werkself, who have won just twice on their Champions League travels in 13 attempts.
Although, they have already created 32 opportunities in their two group games so far – more than the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Inter.
