Porto vs Portimonense – Taça de Portugal : The scheduling of the knock-out rounds of the Taça de Portugal…
On the week after the National team’s duties and prior to a round of European competitions has created a strange scenario for this competition’s matches.
With matches spread throughout several days, looking to satisfy the intentions of the TV channels who own the broadcasting rights, end up not benefiting the show.
On a Friday night, there won’t be many Portimonense fans able to travel to Estádio do Dragão.
Even if, in memory, they have an interesting performance from their team on the league match they played there.
The result wasn’t the best, since they lost 5-2, but Vítor Oliveira’s team has kept their promise of presenting attacking football.
The bigger will of the Dragons and the 3 goals scored in burst in a bit more than 5 minutes, during the first half, have ended up having a decisive impact on the outcome of the match.
The victory was for FC Porto, but Portimonense left the Estádio do Dragão with something to be proud of.
Things should be different this time.
While Portimonense might present a similar strategy, without many changes on the starting lineup chosen by Vítor Oliveira,
considering it will be prepared like any other league match, for FC Porto, between international duties and the Champions League, it is almost certain that Sérgio Conceição will field some of their less utilized players.
Porto vs Portimonense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
That might, in a certain way, create room for Portimonense to show their qualities, without heavily harming FC Porto’s favouritism.
FC Porto has proved to have solutions even when they are forced to use players who aren’t usual starters and, with more or less difficulty, should end up scoring the goals needed to ensure the victory here.
