At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, the Estádio Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas will play against Moreirense and Porto in the quarter-finals of the Portuguese Cup. According to bookmakers, Porto is a favorite in the match.
The team of Moreirense arrives in these quarter-finals after after three matches against very inferior opponents. They beat Canelas and Felgueiras, both play very weak divisions, and in the last round they defeated Santa Clara in the penalty shootout, the second division team of Portuguese football. Moreirense has an extremely limited team in the attack and defensively concedes on average 1.5 goals per game in Liga NOS.
The dragons played only two games in the Portuguese Cup to reach this stage but both matches were against teams of the Portuguese first division. In their first commitment Porto defeated Portimonense by 3 × 2 and in mid-December defeated Vitória de Guimarães by 4 × 0. He is the best team in the country right now, on both sides of the ball, and in interviews coach Sérgio Conceição said his team is going to win on Thursday.
The last time these teams met, in August for the first round of the current NOS League season, Porto won by 3 × 0 in a game where they could have scored many more goals. It is a team much superior in all the questions. Moreirense has only 3 wins in 17 games against first division teams and in front of a Porto that goes into the field seeking victory, I believe they will find it very difficult.
However, the handicap lines are very stretched and once again I am going in a market that has been resulting in good profits recently, which is the “To score in both times”. The dragons managed to score in both halves in the last four games they played and have everything to expand that mark on that occasion.
Prediction Today:Porto to scores in both times
