Porto vs Portimonense: Prediction

Undoubtedly, the hosts are the favourites in this fixture. Four of Porto’s wins were HT/FT wins, and we believe that will be the case in this match too. They have scored at least three goals in each of the three matches they played at home. So, we think they will score at least three goals in this encounter as well.
