Champions to Get Back on Track
While we’re only several games into the new campaign, Porto face a must win clash against Portimonense at Estadio do Dragao this Sunday after already conceding significant ground to their likely championship rivals.
Shock 3-2 defeats against Maritimo and Pacos de Ferreira mean the champions are six points behind leaders Sporting and five in arrears of Benfica going into this Matchday 7 fixture, and their title defence will be in serious jeopardy should they fail to beat Paulo Sergio’s struggling outfit.
Porto are heavy odds-on to get the job done and it’s easy to see why despite their early season slip-ups.
Sergio Conceicao’s side have won 11 of their last 13 home league matches, while they’ve won all nine previous competitive games against Sunday’s opponents. With Portimonense losing four of their first six league games, those records should be comfortably enhanced.
Six of the last eight meetings have seen both teams hit the net though, so backing a Porto win with both teams to score makes obvious sense here – particularly as the hosts have conceded in three of their last four at Estadio do Dragao and eight goals in their last four top flight outings overall.
Porto have smashed in at least three goals in seven of their last eight encounters with the Algarve minnows, so we’re also predicting a 3-1 correct score.
