Portimonense vs Porto – Liga NOS : With the Schedule fixed, FC Porto now has a 5-points advantage over Benfica and Sporting
Never a team with a 5-points advantage going into the 23rd round has lost the league title. Sérgio Conceição’s team is that way on a managing task until the end of the league.
That starts at Portimonense’s stadium, which is a team that has been exciting to watch, offensively, but that also isn’t that good when it comes to their defensive organization.
For them, this match appears after a win in Santa Maria da Feira that, in a certain way, gave the team some breathing room. With a huge punctual balance on the 2nd half of the table, not even the teams that are making quiet campaigns can feel safe.
But those 3 points against a direct opponent allow the team to approach this reception to FC Porto with a different mental freshness.
FC Porto comes, however, on a moment of explosion of energy. The loss against Liverpool, on the Champions League, didn’t leave any negative marks, on the contrary, has transformed FC Porto into a club thirsty for blood,
like it was proved when they battered Rio Ave last week and on the exhibition they’ve pulled off on the 45 minutes that were left against Estoril.
Losing, they’ve started off very strong and scored 3 goals that ensured another 3 points.
Portimonense vs Porto – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With 90 minutes ahead, we shouldn’t expect an FC Porto so anxious in Portimão, but equally wise on the way they will approach this match,
in order not to offer the minimum of initiative to a team that, having ball, might create some problems to their defensive midfield.
The good vibes of Portimonense shouldn’t be enough to stop an FC Porto eyeing the title.
