FC Porto hosts Pacos de Ferreira in round 12 of Portuguese Primeira Liga. The match will be played on Monday, December 2nd at Estádio do Dragão (Porto)
The hosts can concentrate on the local championship and gain a couple of victories. The situation in this championship remains unchanged - nine wins in 11 rounds and Porto scored an average of two goals and rarely conceded. I’m waiting for a natural victory over one of the outsiders who has just returned to the elite of Portuguese football. The hosts have no problems in their field with teams like Pacos.
Pacos experiences certain difficulties. The visitors seem to not concede a lot, but they lost almost all away matches. The defeat to Benfica with a 0-5 scored, a 1-2 score against Sporting and the penultimate place in the standings can speak of the team’s weakness. The team scores an average of a goal in two rounds and its fate is a fierce struggle for survival. The only motivation in the confrontation with Porto is not to lose with a crushing score.
If they offer such a wonderful coefficient for at least two goals, you need to use this. After winning the away game over Young Boys where Porto managed to score twice, it is unlikely that a failure in the game against a clear outsider would follow. Although the visitors do not have so many hammering defeats in the current championship, everything depends entirely on the hosts in the upcoming match. I have no arguments for Pacos to be able to impose a fight on one of the leaders and concede only one goal.
Prediction for the match: FC Porto to score over 2.0 goals
