FC Porto vs Belenenses SAD
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 5 July 2020
Kick-off at 21:30 UK/ 22:30 CET
Venue: Estádio do Dragão.
The Dragons had missed out on the league title the last season by a tiny margin to Benfica. However, at present, the former have a lead of six points at the top-most spot over the other, and if they are to maintain the lead for five more match-days, the title will be theirs.
This also seems to be the perfect time to go after wins for Sergio Conceicao’s men, as their arch-rivals are on a two-game losing run, and have a difficult match-up this weekend.
On top of that, the Dragons have a phenomenal h2h record over this rival, and to pile on even more Armando Teixeira’s men have been struggling all season to perform as well. As such, expect a huge Porto win this Sunday.

FC Porto vs Belenenses SAD: Prediction
The Dragons have been the best team in the country for a long time along with Benfica.
At present, they have a huge opportunity to get back the title they lost the last year to their arch-rivals. And for that to happen, it’s imperative that they keep winning.
Considering that they are the toppers, and that they are taking on a team from the bottom-most tier, chances are high for a win for the Dragons.
Moreover, they had won 16 of their previous 20 home appearances, while their counterparts were winless in 10 of their former 15 road trips.
In addition, they also do have a dominating h2h record over the years, and particularly so at this venue.
Taking into account these observations, expect a huge Porto win this Sunday.
