FC Porto vs Belenenses SAD
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Wednesday, 30th January 2019
Kick-off at 21.15 UK/ 22.15 CET
Venue: Estádio do Dragão (Porto).
The Dragons are in their cave, and it’s time for the Pastries to come visit. That’s all you need to know about this tie.
Be it offensive stats or defensive, no other team could lay claim on a better record than that of Sergio Conceicao’s men. Especially at home, they have not even given a chance for other teams to catch up, and also, they fittingly embellish the top spot of the league with pride.
O Belem is no pushover either, but they are severely handicapped in this tie. They are supposed to go against a non-stop machine like that of Porto, while on the road. Their mission to catch up with the top four positions would likely take a hit this match-day.
