Porto vs Paços de Ferreira betting tips: Primeira Liga preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

After falling further behind in the title race last weekend, Porto really need to get back on track.

Fábio Cardoso’s early opener looked set to claim victory at Santa Clara, only for the hosts to equalise late on.

This leaves Sérgio Conceição’s side eight points adrift of run-away leaders Benfica.

However, more broadly, it’s been an excellent week for the Dragões.

On Tuesday, Mehdi Taremi and Stephen Eustáquio were on target as Porto beat Atlético Madrid, thereby snatching top spot in their Champions League group.

Back in the league, ahead of Benfica’s Sunday night clash, can the champions cut the gap at the top?

Paços de Ferreira meanwhile were playing European football just 15 months ago, but now find themselves rock bottom of the division.

José Mota’s team are the only Primeira Liga side yet to win this season, beaten 1-0 by Marítimo on Friday night.

In fact, Pacenses have just two points to their name, so are seven from safety.

Thus, a comfortable home win should be on the cards at Estádio do Dragão.
