Belenenses face an uphill battle
Belenenses welcome FC Porto to Estadio do Restelo on Thursday night with the home side being rank outsiders.
Belenenses have lost four of their last six games, winning just three times all season and find themselves in a tough relegation battle at the bottom of Primeira Liga. Their defensive record has been their only real plus point this season with just 14 goals conceded in 16 games but their record in the opposition half will need to improve quickly.
Porto are on a great run of form, winning nine of their last 10 Primeira Liga games, with a 1-1 draw with Benfica being the only time they’ve dropped points since the end of October. They’ve also been in rich goalscoring form too, scoring 39 times in 16 games, averaging almost 2.5 goals per game.
It would take the most positive of Belenenses fans to predict them taking something from this game and we’re confident that Porto will emerge victorious from the encounter. So much so that we’re backing them to beat the natural handicap, which is set at -1.25.
For a full win on the handicap market, we’d need Porto to win by at least three goals. We think that is exactly what happens in this match and we’re forecasting a 3-0 victory for the visitors as they pick up an easy win.
