Porto vs Moreirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 2 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao (Porto).
Sunday’s action of the fourth round in the Portuguese Primeira Liga is going to be closed with a clash between Porto and Moreirense.
The defending champions are looking forward for keeping the trophy in their hands at the end of the season, but they’ve already suffered one surprising defeat. After two opening victories, Vitoria Guimaraes pulled a great comeback after being 2-0down at half time at Estadio Do Dragao.
Vincent Aboubakar and the lads shouldn’t let them happen a hiccup like this one again and they should get back on winning track. The hosts have been the most productive side last season, while they were very hard to crack. Porto allowed just one point to their rivals when playing in front of the home crowd last time.
Moreirense managed to survive in the last campaign as they stayed two points clear of the relegation. They had severe troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net, while their defence allowed too many goals.
They’ve been putting poor away performances as they managed to book three victories and remain undefeated only two more times. However, after an opening defeat in the current season, the visitors managed to pick up four points from the following two matches.
Porto vs Moreirense: Head-to-head
It is not a surprise that the hosts have been more successful in their head to head matches, however they suffered two defeats in the last two years. In their encounters, the crowd is usually able to see at least three goals.
Porto vs Moreirense: Prediction
Porto are absolute favourites in this one and they shouldn’t miss the chance to win this time. They are definitely going to be more focused on the pitch and Porto shouldn’t let their opponents endanger them at home ground.
Since Porto have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal, especially when playing at home pitch, they should be capable of leading this match over 2.5 margin. Four times in their last five head to head clashes the crowd was able to see at least three goals in total.
