Porto Need a Win in this Derby Match
Porto made it three wins on the bounce in all competitions on Wednesday night as their cup tie with Braga ended in a 1-1 draw after 90-minutes. Boavista are looking to avoid a third straight league defeat this weekend, after going down 2-1 and 1-0 at home to Gil Vicente and Nacional.
Porto can’t really afford to drop any more points in the title race as they already find themselves trailing Sporting CP by 8pts. Luckily, the hosts go up against their local-rivals Boavista this weekend, a side that have beaten on each of the last 13 occasions. Porto not only stand a good chance of winning on Saturday but they might well keep a clean sheet, as they have done in each of their last eight encounters with Boavista.
Porto are the form favourites despite drawing their last three fixtures, as Boavista have lost four of their last six outings. Porto have looked strong at the back in recent weeks, keeping four clean sheets in their last six attempts. Boavista look set for a relegation battle this season as they sit third from bottom as things stand, while Porto have title ambitions.
We’re confident that Porto will win-to-nil on Saturday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. The hosts always seem to beat Boavista and keep a clean sheet, but Porto haven’t scored more than two goals in any of their last six matches, which is why we’re backing a final scoreline of just 2-0.
