Porto vs Vitoria Guimaraes Portuguese Primeira Liga Predictions by LeagueLane

Porto vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 25 August 2018
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio do Dragao (Porto).

Porto made nothing less than a spectacular start in the defense of Primeira Liga crown by snatching wins over Chaves and Belenenses.

They also displayed their lethal power in those two outings, especially at home against Chaves when they found the back of the bet 5 times.

However, they had a few moments of lapse in the away trip to Belenenses last week when they squandered a 2 goal lead. Still, their persistence paid off and a late penalty goal restored three points for the Sergio Conceicao’s team.

Vitoria Guimaraes finished 9th last season and their start to the current campaign is nothing but disastrous.

Starting off with a cup defeat at home to Tondela, the team went to lose the first two league games of the new season.

They faced a tough opponent in Benfica on opening day away from home and ended up losing 3-2. But last week’s 0-1 defeat at home to usual relegation candidate Feirense is a big low point.

Porto vs Vitoria Guimaraes Head-to-head

  • Porto won the last 5 competitive matches against Vitoria.
  • They scored 14 goals in the process and conceded just 3.
  • Porto’s unbeaten streak at home against Vitoria Guimaraes is just over 20 years old, 21 wins from 22 matches in all competitions.

Porto vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction

This is a head-to-head fixture dominated by Porto over the years and Guimaraes haven’t won here in over two decades.

The Lisbon side scored at least three time in the four h2h meetings at Estadio do Dragao, so handicap bets must be grabbed when the odds are high.

Another reason for this is Porto’s current scoring form, having netted 11 goals in three competitive outings.
