Atletico Madrid vs Porto: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & how to watch
They are yet to find their rhythm, picking up just seven points from their first four matches. However, Porto are a familiar rival, as they faced each other at the same stage of the competition last season, with Atleti winning 3-1 in Portugal after a goalless stalemate at home.
Porto will, nevertheless, be full of confidence before taking on the Spanish giants as they have been in good form in the Primeira Liga. They beat Gil Vicente 2-0 comfortably in their previous match to climb to the third position in the league table with 12 points from five matches.

- Porto have won just one of their five previous away games at Atlético Madrid in all European competition (D2 L2), a 3-0 UEFA Champions League win in December 2009 thanks to goals from Bruno Alves, Radamel Falcao and Hulk.
- Spanish sides have only lost one of their last nine UEFA Champions League meetings with Portuguese opponents (W6 D2), with Barcelona losing 3-0 at Benfica last season. Away from home, the last side from Portugal to win at a Spanish side in the competition were Benfica in September 2015 against Atlético Madrid (2-1).
- This will be Atlético Madrid’s 13th season in the UEFA Champions League, moving them ahead of Valencia (12) and behind only Barcelona and Real Madrid (both 27 including 2022-23) for most appearances in the competition by Spanish clubs. Los Colchoneros have qualified for each of the last 10 editions of the tournament, all under Diego Simeone.
- FC Porto are participating in the UEFA Champions League for a 26th separate season, behind only Barcelona and Real Madrid (both 27 including 2022-23) in the competition’s history. They were eliminated from last season’s group stage, and haven’t been knocked out at the opening group stage in back-to-back seasons since 1997-98 and 1998-99.
- Atlético Madrid have progressed from their group in eight of the last nine UEFA Champions League seasons, being eliminated at this stage only in 2017-18, when they would go on to win the UEFA Europa League. However, Los Colchoneros are winless on MD1 in each of their last three seasons in the competition (D2 L1).

- Antoine Griezmann was directly involved in 67% of Atlético Madrid’s goals in last season’s UEFA Champions League (6/9), scoring four and assisting two.
