Belenenses vs Porto
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 2 April 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio do Restelo (Lisboa).
The closing match of the 28th round in Portuguese Primeira Liga is going to be contested between Belenenses and Porto. Home side wants to stay out of the danger zone, while the visitors are looking forward to remaining on the top spot.
A good recent form dragged Belenenses away from the relegation zone since in the last five matches they’ve picked up eight points. Currently, they are sitting on the 12th place and they are six points ahead of the red line. Silas’ side is one of the most inefficient teams in the competition while their defence managed to hold the oppositions’ strikers to a respectable amount of conceded goals. The hosts have been defeated three times at home ground where they are doing a good job. Although this one is going to be a very tough challenge for them, they should do their best to pull a surprise in this clash.
The visitors are the top placed team and they have a two-point advantage over defending champions Benfica. Until two rounds ago, they have been the only undefeated side in the competition, but they’ve failed to a shocking defeat against Pacos de Ferreira in their latest outing, who were the bottom placed team at that time. Moussa Marega and the lads have been one of the most productive teams in the league, while their defence is the tightest one. Porto should not allow another surprise which could put in danger their top spot.
Belenenses vs Porto: Head-to-head

Belenenses vs Porto: Prediction

Porto’s defence is the best in the league, while the hosts have troubles of finding the oppositions’ net. Away side should be able to keep the clean sheet.
