FC Porto vs Santa Clara for the Portuguese Primeira Liga championship match on Sunday at Dragão Stadium.
In one of several matches played in Portugal this Sunday, the home team of FC Porto and the visiting team of Santa Clara play, in a game disputed at Estádio do Dragão, in Porto, in a match to count for the 6th round of Primeira Liga.
The FC Porto team, which will play another match in front of their fans in the Portuguese football championship, are looking to follow up on their last games in the competition, as they come from the best game sequence of the season.
With 4 consecutive wins, one of them on the ground of the great rival Benfica, which put the team as the most direct pursuer of isolated leader Famalicão, with 12 points so far.
The team has the best offensive record of the event, with 13 goals.
The away team is also looking to continue what is one of the best moments of form and results of this start of their new season.
With the team not knowing what it is to be defeated in four matches, where they had 2 wins (against Paços de Ferreira and Moreirense), and 2 draws (against Tondela and Belenenses), which put the Azorean team in the 1st half of the table with 8 points added up in this period of games played.
The team has both the worst offensive record of the championship (3 goals) and the best defensive record (2 goals conceded).
Given FC Porto’s tendentially offensive way of playing, as is their obligation at least in their local league, to add to the home factor and a very positive and motivating moment for the team and expecting a Santa Clara more to take advantage of any mistake.
I can see this match having an early goal and being able to finish with more goals, namely from the locals.
