The long awaited match in Portugal, the greatest classic between Porto and Benfica will be played Estádio do Dragão counting for the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Porto are having an excellent season, they are still competing in all competitions and they are in a position to win them. They are always a strong team at home; they have won 11 of the last 12 games at Estádio do Dragão for the Portuguese Primeira Liga. In the last round, they managed a comfortable 4-1 victory at Famalicão, before that, they had defeated Moreirense at home by 3-0. The team is placed 2nd position in Liga Nos with 31 points after 10 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses.
Benfica are placed 3rd in the Portuguese Primeira Liga with a record of 10 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses, for a total of 31 points. In the last round, they defeated Tondela by 2-0 at home after a 1-1 draw at Açores against Santa Clara, and they are dropping points in a startling way in the fight for the title. The Encarnados are not convincing me this season, though they are winning games, they have a poor football display; they are a team with less connection on the pitch, e two slow central defenders with poor performance. I believe that the team will have problems in stopping Porto’s lethal attack; I think that the team will have difficulties stopping players like Corona, Otávio, Marega, Taremi who are strong players and with great dynamic in the offensive transaction.
These two teams have already faced each other in the Super Cup, played last month, where the Dragões came out on top by 2 goals to nil. Once again, I believe in Porto’s victory here. The team coached by Sérgio Conceição have been playing, with a great attitude in the games. I see a very consistent team than Benfica and that’s why I will back the Dragões. After all, we will go for the +0 Asian Handicap line to be on the safer side, a classic is always. Sign-up for the best betting software and enjoy the best odds and limits.
