Porto will arrive at Estadio do Dragao full of confidence.

Since bowing out of the Champions League with defeat to Atletico Madrid, Sergio Conceicao’s side have bounced back in hugely impressive fashion.

Indeed, they are currently on an 18-match unbeaten run across all competitions, winning 15 of those.

The Dragoes have won the first leg on home soil in five of their last seven Europa League knockout ties, including each of the last three.

They are also unbeaten in their four previous meetings with Lyon, who are seeking their first away goal in this fixture.

Peter Bosz’s side qualified from Group A with flying colours; registering 16 points from a possible 18.

Although, Les Gones head to Portugal having lost two of their last five games after going unbeaten in eight.

Porto vs Lyon: Match Stats

We can expect goals at Estadio do Dragao due to the defensive frailties of both sides in recent weeks.

Despite their impressive form, Porto have kept just two clean sheets from a possible 14. Meanwhile, Lyon have registered just one shutout in their last six matches.

One of the players most likely to profit is the in-form Evanilson.

The Brazil Under-23 international has scored five goals in as many appearances for Porto in all competitions.
