After yet another victory in the league last Sunday, which further legitimized the first position in the league table, Porto on Thursday evening will once again take the field for the Portuguese Cup. The opponent on duty will be the “small” Moreirense, who surprisingly reached the semi-final but in the Liga is making great effort (fifteenth position in the ranking in the fight for salvation). In short, for the hosts the hopes of putting in trouble the leaders are reduced to the light, so as to even doubt whether it is worth wasting energy that can weigh on the much more important challenge of next Monday against Vitoria Setubal …
The key points of the prediction is Moreirense – Porto
The Port comes from eight consecutive victories if we consider all the competitions in which it participates (league, Champions League and Portuguese Cup).
In the league the leaders are still unbeaten: fourteen wins and three draws in the seventeen games played so far.
The Port also has the best defense of the championship, with its only nine goals in the passive in the seventeen disputed races.
In particular, there are only three goals collected by Porto in the eight games played away (and six in nine home matches).
The Moreirense vice versa has the worst attack in the league (along with that of Feirense): only thirteen goals scored in sixteen matches played).
Obviously Porto is widely favored, but the share of 2 is really popular. To raise the stakes a little, you have to consider alternative options. Considering the defensive solidity of the leaders, we are convinced by the odds of the No Gol, however interesting.
