The match

With their title defence looking increasingly difficult, Porto can ill-afford dropping points as they come against Portimonense. This Liga Portugal match will be played on Sunday at the Estádio do Dragão. Ahead of this round, the hosts are in 2nd position with 58 points from 25 matches while the visitors are with 26 points and are in 14th place. A goalless draw against Braga last time around meant Porto could only win seven points from their last four league matches. This has increased their gap to leaders Benfica has swelled to ten points with nine more rounds remaining. While retaining their title now loos uncertain, Porto will be looking to maintain pressure. Having won all but two of their 12 matches at this venue in this league campaign, Porto are unlikely to take things for granted.

Portimonense have never won a single point from their 19 visits to Porto in their history. They have a 10-point cushion over the relegation threatened sides, but four straight defeats before the international break has got the camp slightly worried. With only 18 goals scored and only the bottom-two teams netting fewer, the visitors know where they have to improve. With each of their last five league defeats coming with a clean sheet, Portimonense have a mountain to climb. Any hopes of starting their revival on this trip is a non-starter as the visitors have lost their last six away league matches in a row. Five of those have come with a scoring blank and that looks a prospect that could be repeated here.

Key Statistics

  • Porto have won their last 15 Liga Portugal matches against Portimonense, eight of which have come with a clean sheet
  • Porto have won eight of their last ten Liga Portugal matches, four with a clean sheet
  • Portimonense have lost their last four league matches, all without scoring a goal
  • Portimonense have lost nine of their last ten away league matches, eight of which have come without scoring a goal

The bet of our experts

After failing to stay in touch with the league leaders Benfica with a draw last time out, Porto can’t afford to draw any more points. They have won all 19 of their previous league matches against Portimonense which makes them a perfect side to face at this moment. The visitors have struggled on the road this season and there’s no reason to believe that it would improve this time. Our prediction for Porto vs Portimonense is for Porto to win with a clean sheet.
