Vitoria Guimarães vs FC Porto
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 3rd February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estádio D. Afonso Henriques (Guimarães).
The Dragons love to defend. Not that they lack anything in the scoring department, but at least Benfica can boast of having scored more goals than this team. But it’s their defense that has made the difference for the Azuis e brancos, allowing to hold a five-point lead over even the mighty, free-scoring, aforementioned, Eagles.
The Conquerors are a great them themselves, but the challenge that lies ahead of them might be a bit too hot to handle. They can find solace in the fact that, the team has had a pretty decent run till now. But, alas, all good things must come to an end.
Not the Dragons though. They are too impressive to come to an end.

Vitoria Guimarães vs FC Porto Prediction
The combined scorecard for the last four matches at this venue is 0-7, in favor of the guests. At home, the Conquerors have won just twice against this opponent, in response to 16 losses. Also, the overall h2h record is 37-2, again in favor of the current league-toppers.
Luis Castro’s men have lost four of their last six overall games and failed to score as well. At home, they lost the last two, and once more, failed to register a goal. Against the Dragons, who have posted the best defensive stats overall, as well as on the road, the hosts are not expected to score.
The Blue and Whites will easily win this tie, and the only reason I don’t think the score would go above 0-3 is that the team from Guimaraes, for all their shortcomings in comparison to their opponents, are not pushovers, and will fight. It would be tough for Sergio Conceicao’s men to score more than three.
