FC Porto to Win and Under 3.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Boavista are a touch inconsistent, having lost 3-0 at home to Benfica, they then beat Sporting Lisbon 2-1 on their own turf earlier this season. Porto, who have won 15 of the last 16 derbies, have scored no more than two goals in any of their six away league games this season.

FC Porto 2-1

Reason for tip

Porto have scored no more than two goals in any of their six away league games this term. The Dragons conceded from a set-piece in the Santa Clara game, so there could be a chance for Boavista to get on the scoresheet here, but Porto rarely concede more than once in domestic contests – hence the 2-1 correct score forecast.

Boavista vs FC Porto Predictions

  • Inconsistent Boavista lost 3-0 at home to Benfica, but beat Sporting Lisbon 2-1 on their own turf earlier this season.
  • Porto have scored no more than two goals in any of their six away league games this season.
  • Porto have won 15 of the last 16 derbies, drawing the other after being 2-0 down at half-time.

Porto to pick up three points in derby

Porto have been so dominant in the derby that it makes you wonder if it’s worth playing anymore and they should return from the Bessa after clinching another victory over neighbours Boavista on Saturday. The Dragons have won 15 of the last 16 clashes, drawing the other after being 2-0 down at half-time, and will come up against a Boavista side floundering at the moment.

The Chequered Ones lost 1-0 to Rio Ave last weekend to make it five games without a win and slip down to 12th place in the Primeira Liga table. Petit bemoaned the unfairness of the result as his side fluffed some good chances – including an incredible miss by Yusupha Njie in stoppage time.

They cannot afford to pass up any opportunities against a Porto side that need to win to maintain any pressure on Benfica at the top.

Hosts have decent prospects for a goal

Sergio Conceicao’s men dropped two points on their last away assignment at Santa Clara, which was maybe a match too far after a hectic early-season schedule.

Conceicao rotated his team for the midweek cup win over Mafra, so his big guns should be fresh when they return for the derby with also the potential for Pepe to make his comeback from injury.

Porto have scored no more than two goals in any of their six away trips this term, a stat that lends itself to backing them to win with fewer than four goals in the game. They conceded from a set-piece in the Santa Clara game, so there could be a chance for Boavista to get on the scoresheet here, but Porto rarely concede more than once in domestic contests – hence the 2-1 correct score forecast.
