Porto vs Famalicão betting tips: Primeira Liga preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

After slipping up last weekend, can Porto get back to winning ways?

Last Saturday, Sérgio Conceição’s side could only draw with Casa Pia, despite fact the hosts were reduced to ten-men in first half stoppage time.

Porto had 25 shots at Estádio Pina Manique, to the host’s two, but could not find the breakthrough.

This saw the champions slip down to third in the Primeira Liga, now seven points adrift leaders Benfica.

In mid-week, the Dragões did safely get through to the quarter-finals of the Taça de Portugal.

Galeno broke the deadlock, before Toni Martínez’s hat-trick secured a 4-0 demolition of Arouca.

Back in the league, will Porto claim another home win here?

Famalicão were also victorious in a midweek cup tie, needing extra time to oust second-tier Leixões; Jhonder Cádiz the match-winner.

In Primeira Liga terms, João Pedro Sousa’s side are 13th, just five points clear of the relegation play-off spot.

Last Friday night though, Famalicão did beat Vizela 2-1, with Alexandre Penetra and then Iván Jaime getting the goals.

Nevertheless, a home win should be on cards at Estádio do Dragão.
