FC Porto vs Santa Clara Predictions

  • Porto have won 11 of their 13 home league games this season.
  • Santa Clara have failed to score in three of their last four league games and have just lost leading-scorer Cryzan.
  • Fabio Vieira has scored three goals in his last five appearances for club and country.

Porto can maintain machine-like title march

Porto’s machine-like march on the finishing line for the Primeira Liga title is unlikely to be knocked off course by Santa Clara, who arrive at the Dragao on the back of two 0-0 draws against struggling opponents.

Porto have not struggled to score all season long and can boast the best home goals ratio in the division at 2.62. They have hit at least three goals in six of their 13 league clashes at the Dragao and will probably expect to have the three points sewn up pretty quickly against the Azoreans.

Santa Clara have lost on their last eight visits to this ground and have taken a grand total of 0 points from the last 11 home and away league fixtures against the Dragons. They did, however, beat a slightly weakened Porto team 3-1 in the Taca de Liga back in October.

Santa Clara appear less potent than before

That game should have little bearing on this as Sergio Conceicao’s side are desperate to maintain their hard-earned advantage over champions Sporting Lisbon in the run-in. Santa Clara have scored in nine of their 14 away Primeira Liga games this season, but not in their last two and there has been a downturn in their scoring generally since the start of February. Seven-goal leading scorer Cryzan has also just moved to China, leaving them a little bit short on quality in the striking department.

So the preferred Porto bet here is to back them with fewer than four goals in the game. The correct score play that seems to best fit our expectations is 2-0 to the hosts as Santa Clara, blanked three times in their last four games, have only shipped more than two goals on one road trip so far this season.

Fabio Vieira also looks a lively anytime goalscorer option at around 13/5 after the midfielder scored his third in his last five games while on Portugal Under-21 duty this week.
