Vitoria de Guimaraes vs FC Porto
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques (Guimaraes)
Porto have secured the title with a fine streak late in the campaign and they travel to Guimaraes for their Matchday 34 clash on Saturday afternoon on the back of a five-game winning streak in Primeira Liga. Although they’ve seen a disappointing Taca da Portugal loss to Sporting CP (on penalties after a goalless draw), Sergio Conceicao’s men have managed to put on convincing displays in league and bag the silverware.
Vitoria Guimaraes haven’t been able to cope with the league’s top 4 but we’ve seen them in fine form recently too, as they beat Moreirense and Tondela with five goals netted along the way. They now hope to end the season on a high in front of the home crowd but have a very tough task ahead of them, looking to hold off already crowned champions.
Os Vimaranenses have been regularly scoring goals, though, and obviously promise a great challenge at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques. We thus expect an exciting clash with goals which should be very satisfying to watch as both sides close the 2017/18 campaign.
Vitoria Guimaraes vs FC Porto: Head-to-head
Porto have beaten the rivals in all of their last six head-to-head matchups.
Dragons have netted eight goals in two home clashes earlier this term, including a 4-2 league win and a 4-0 Taca da Portugal win.
Guimaraes have been a tougher side to beat at this ground but still suffered three losses in last three games.
Vitoria Guimaraes vs FC Porto: Prediction
We will now back Porto to extend their fine streak and bag all three points at 1.45, which looks great value seeing their current spell of form and head-to-head records. We do feel they’ll want to impress on the final day of the campaign and be able to do so!
We have seen a six-goal thriller between the sides in early January and we do hope to see goals on both ends, going for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.80 in the hope we’ll see Guimaraes build on their fine goal scoring records of recent as well.
