Knowing that Futebol Clube do Porto can do in Liga NOS what they couldn’t do in the Champions League,
we should have another win for them on this Friday night’s match.
The only novelty that the match in Vila de Conde brought was a goal conceded, in what was the first time FC Porto has conceded on a league match this season. Still, their opponent’s quality will justify that more than the idea that they were tired after their European loss.
Sérgio Conceição’s team is not, however, a team with a lot of defensive solidity.
Focused on the offensive aspect, with an enormous ability to impose themselves on the opponent’s midfield, FC Porto has some weaknesses regarding their creativity and the imposition of rhythm when they lose the numerical advantage at the centre of the field.
Otávio being called up to the starting line-up looks like a good solution to be tested over the course of the season.
With the Brazilian on the pitch, the team has more options on the wins (if that is where he is playing), but they can also present a better support on the middle corridor, with him playing as No.10, just like it happened on the 1st half against Rio Ave.
Portimonense’s visit to Estádio da Luz might give us some hints regarding what we can expect from them on Estádio do Dragão.
A balanced side, consistent on the several stages of the match and assertive in the transitions.
It is also good to mention that against Benfica, the side managed by Vítor Oliveira was close to cause an upset, something they will, surely, try once again.
Porto vs Portimonense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The win against Feirense last Monday puts them on a more respectable and deserving position, since they have been presenting with a lot of quality, despite not getting very good results to prove it.
In any way, FC Porto’s ability to impose themselves through their offensive quality makes me believe that the hosts will get the win in this match.
