Farense vs FC Porto
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 25 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.15 UK
Venue: Estadio de Sao Luis, Faro.
Farense moved away from the very foot of the Primeira Liga standings thanks to a massive 3-1 victory over Gil Vicente on January 10th. Sergio Vieira’s troops have not been in action since, meaning they should be well rested ahead of Monday’s home clash against the reigning champions Porto at Estadio de Sao Luis. As big of a confidence-boost as the aforementioned victory was, it will likely count for little when Leoes de Faro come head to head with the league’s heavyweights who are desperate for points.
Porto had to settle for a 1-1 draw in their previous league tie against Benfica. It left the team at the second position of the Primeira Liga standings, four points shy of Sporting Lisbon at the top. Dragoes made it two straight games without a win six days ago when they lost the League Cup tie to Sporting CP 2-1 on the road. They just need to return to winning ways against recently-promoted Farense here.
Farense vs FC Porto Head-to-head
It’s been almost two decades since these two teams last locked horns. That’s how long Farense have been absent from the top-flight football.
Porto have been the super-dominant side in the history of this match-up. Dragoes won 15 and drew one of 16 clashes against Farense.
Porto won by two or more goals difference in each of the last four H2H encounters with Leoes de Faro.
Farense vs FC Porto Prediction
Porto are massive favourites going into the tie even though Farense have been a tough nut to crack on the home patch lately. Leoes de Faro won three and drew one of the last four home outings in the league, each of which has seen both teams scoring.
Since Porto have shipped eight goals in six away matches in Primeira Liga this term, we would not be shocked to see the hosts getting on the scoreline on Monday evening.
Porto to win & Both Teams To Score thus stands out as the best bet for this match at the sky-high 3.50 odds. We are also heavily tempted by the attractive 1.80 odds offered for three or more goals to be scored on Monday evening.
