FC Porto vs Vitoria de Guimaraes for the Portuguese Primeira Liga championship match on Sunday at Dragão Stadium.
The FC Porto team comes into another match of this edition of the football championship in Portugal looking to follow up on what has been their last two matches in the competition.
Sérgio Conceição’s team had excellent results, beating Vitória de Setúbal 4-0 and Benfica at Luz Stadium 2-0, which allowed the team ascend a few more places in the competition leaderboard and let their big rival and most direct competitor to the title, fall behind, imposing the first defeat to Benfica of Bruno Lage, in the championship.
The team now faces an opponent that could not win in the last two matches they played.
Vitoria de Guimaraes
As for Vitória de Guimarães arrives at this new match of the Primeira Liga in Portugal also seeking to continue a very positive start to the season in overall terms, with the team not yet adding any defeat, and last Thursday sealed the move to the group stage of the Europa League in what it’s a great way to start the new season, both in sports and in financial terms.
In the national championship, the Victorian team adds only 2 points, but they have still a game behind concerning the other teams, missing still to face Rio Ave.
With two sets that tend to play more offensive football, and in the case of FC Porto is practically mandatory this happens while in the case of Vitória with the entry of Ivo Vieira things started to improve and put the Vimaranenses to play a good football, which also often tends to potentiate defensive errors.
I believe that given their recent good shape and the quality of both teams, we can have here a game not only of goals but also that can enhance that both sets can give a taste to the foot.
