FC Porto to win and over 2.5 goals is 8/15.
FC Porto to win and both teams to score NO is 4/7.
69 days after their meeting in the Taça de Portugal Final, these two sides kick off the new season with the Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira.
Seven weeks ago, Mehdi Taremi’s brace at Estádio Nacional helped Porto to their 18th cup win.
Now, will the Dragões lift this trophy for a record-extending 23rd time?
Since Sérgio Conceição took over as Porto Head Coach in 2017, they’ve won three Primeira Liga titles and four further domestic trophies.
They’ve also reached the Champions League quarter-finals twice, so will be hoping to make an impact in that competition again too.
In stark contrast, Tondela, despite reaching last season’s cup final, were actually relegated, only winning seven of 34 league games.
So, the Gold and Green will compete in the second-tier for the first time since 2014/15, looking to bounce straight back up.
Thus, to say Nuno Campos’ team come into this clash as big underdogs would be an understatement.
Anything other than a comfortable Porto victory at Estádio Municipal de Aveiro would represent a major surprise.
