Stadium:Estadio Pina Manique (Lisbon) Portugal
This year started well for Porto. The current champion of Portugal reduced the gap in the Primeira standings behind Benfica, and they will have the opportunity to further increase the pressure on their rivals this Saturday at Casa Pia.
If the Dragons manage to overcome the most pleasant surprise of the Portuguese championship, they will be five points behind Benfica again. However, that is easier said than done, the debutant in the elite ranks is currently fifth in the table, with 26 points from 14 rounds, just six points less than Porto.Claim Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Casa Pia is playing against all odds this season and currently is in high 5th place. It has 8 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats. At home this team has 3 wins, a draw and 3 defeats. After what this team showed in the first part of the season, it can dream even of a spot in European competitions next season.
The current champion is getting closer to the leader Benfica. Surely this team is highly motivated and in the match enters as a big favorite. In recent matches Porto was superior and I expect this team to continue dominating despite the good form of the opponent.
