The Dragons from Porto are three points ahead of The Eagles from Lisbon and the battle for the title it’s going to be tough in the last six games. Here is our Pacos Ferreira – Porto tip.
While the guests are playing for the championship, the home team wants to be in the top 10. The hosts have won three of the last four games and have had two successes in a row. The guests remained undefeated in their last three league games, but were also unable to win the last two guest appearances. Porto won four of the last five clashes with Pacos de Ferreira, but the last duel in Ferreira went to the home side. Nevertheless, the guests are the clear favorite in this game. In the Estádio da Mata Real of Pacos de Ferreira, the twelfth of the home table will host the 2nd best away team in the league.
Pacos de Ferreira is in their best after the direct return to the top place in four years in the Primeira Liga. The team recently celebrated two wins in a row, 2-1 at home against Belenenses and 3-1 at Tondela. The northern Portuguese were able to win three of the four games after the lockdown (1 loss). They hold nine wins and four draws alongside 15 defeats from 28 championship games. The club is currently in 12th place, seven points ahead of the relegation zone and almost saved. In the game against Porto, the host is a clear outsider. Pacos had only won two out of the last ten H2H, with one draw and seven losses.
Pacos de Ferreira have two wins (one loss) from their recent three home games. Although they had to give up half of the home games, the newcomer team in the league managed five home wins and two draws and is therefore also in 12th place in the home table there were only 0.87 goals per home appearance and also a low 1.07 goals. The team couldn’t score in 43% of the home games, and 71% was the percentage of conceded goals. In half of the home games they stayed under 1.5 goals. In seven of the last eight Pacos games, however, more than 2.5 goals were scored. In 57% of their home games, both teams couldn’t score, and 21% Ferreira allowed goals to be conceded in both halves.
Can Porto return to away wins?
FC Porto want to dethrone champion Benfica and claim the 29th championship title in the club’s history. The team of Sergio Conceicao remained unbeaten in the recent three games of the Primeira Liga with the 1-0 at home against Maritimo, the goalless draw at Aves and the 4-0 home win recently over Boavista. In the 28th championship game this season, this was the 21st success after four draws and only three losses. The Dragons are three points ahead of Benfica. In Pacos de Ferreira, the away favorite wants to at least defend this lead. Of the last ten guest appearances with this opponent, Porto has won half (five), three draws and two losses. In seven out of the last ten matches in Ferreira, fewer than 2.5 goals have been scored, so you could predict a game with few goals.
Porto have been without a win in the last two away games in the NOS league, winning 2-1 at promoted Famalicao in the first game after the lockdown and 0-0 at Aves. With nine wins from the first 14 guest appearances this season with three draws and only two losses, the club is currently on the 2nd place in the away table. The best defensive team in the league did not concede a goal in five of the most recent seven league games.
The 2nd-best offensive team scored goals in 93% of the away games. Half of the Porto away games fall below 2.5. goals. The Dragons are also 43% without conceding a goal away and wins 36% of the appearances to zero. In half of the away games, the team can score abroad in both halves. In our forecast, we think the half-time lead is very likely for the guests, because Porto scored the opening goal of a game in three quarters and thus goes 57% with a lead in the half-time.
Stats for the Pacos Ferreira – Porto tip
- Porto have received a joint-league high 11 penalties.
- Porto’s average of 2.57 corners conceded per game is the league’s lowest.
- Ferreira’s average of 3.18 yellow cards per game is the division’s second-highest.
- Douglas Tanque (Ferreira) has scored four goals in his previous four league matches – with three of the strikes coming before half-time.
- Whilst often finishing strong, Ferreira have regularly been slow starters, particularly at home where they have netted just three first-half goals all season – none of which came in the 16th-45th minute period (including added-time). This has aided visiting opponents to secure a half-time lead in 50% of their home league matches to date (W3, D4, L7) – all seven losing positions were by the same 1-0 scoreline.
