The bet of our experts

While Porto are surely favourites, their odds are too low to back and do not reflect the challenge of a League Cup semi-final. Viseu may be a second division team, yet have been in an impressive unbeaten run and are scoring goals at ease in their games. With this in mind, backing them to record at least one against Porto is the way to go in this Porto vs Academico Viseu match.
