Vitoria de Guimaraes vs FC Porto
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques, Guimaraes

Two old rivals meet again. Vitoria Guimaraes host one of the best teams in the country Porto FC this Sunday and we are expecting to see one hell of a match.

Home squad has proven numerous times in the recent past they are able to cope with top tier teams and snatch points of them quite frequently.

There is also a lot of bad blood between these two teams recently, especially after Porto’s comeback and dramatic win in the Portuguese League Cup a couple of weeks ago.

The Dragons easily dispatched Guimaraes in the first meeting this season. Full time result was 3-0, mainly thanks to an outstanding performance of Moussa Marega who scored twice.

Vitoria de Guimaraes vs FC Porto: Prediction

There were no surprises when it comes to odds for this fixture. Visitors are warm favorites for the win at 1.90 odds, while chances for Guimaraes to cause a big upset and collect three points here are at 4.00.

We would like to add that hosts are currently in very unpredictable state. Series of three consecutive losses to Porto, Rio Ave and Boavista was interrupted last weekend with incredible 7-0 victory on the road against Famalicao, 6th place squad.

As for their opposition, team from Dragao is currently 2nd with 50 points, four behind the leaders Benfica. Porto are far away from playing poor. 16 victories in 20 games is one hell of an achievement, but simply said they will have to do better to catch up with the Eagles.

The price is too good to be ignored on Porto to win here. They have won six out of the last seven Primeira Liga games, so form is not going to be an issue.

Vitoria scored 17 goals in their 10 home games so far, so going for Over 2.5 FT is also very viable option.
