Paços Ferreira

Porto and Paços de Ferreira face at Estádio Do Dragão, in a match for the 12th round of the Primeira Liga. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 4 wins in the last 4 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 21‑10‑2017, in a match for the Primeira Liga, Porto won by (6‑1). The goals of the match were scored by Jesús Corona (65' ), V. Aboubakar (72' ), Ricardo Pereira (4' ), Felipe (18' ) and M. Marega (25' and 33' ), for Porto, and by Welthon (8' ), for Paços de Ferreira. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since Paços de Ferreira presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Porto

After 9 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, the home team is in the 2nd position, havinf won 28 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Boavista by (0‑1), after in the previous match they have won (1‑0) at home, against Desportivo Aves. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 27 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 12 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses at their stadium, with 36 goals scored and 7 conceded. In their last match, for the UEFA Europa League, they got an away win against Young Boys by (1‑2).

They have won the last 5 home matches for this competition. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 2 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have been able to score first and have done so in 9 of the last 11 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in advantage in all of those 9 matches and have always held on to the lead until the end of the 90'.

FC Porto is in second place on the standings, with two points separating them from the lead held by the reigning champions and big rival Benfica. The "dragons" will be on the pitch after the "incarnates" have received the Maritime, but regardless of the result in the Luz, FC Porto will only have interest on the victory, either to assault the lead or to keep the distance. Sérgio Conceição's side will be moralized by their 2-1 turnaround win in Berne last thursday against Young Boys. A consummate triumph with Aboubakar's bis in just three minutes, allowing FC Porto to reach the last round of the group stage on their own to move on. Behind them is the 4-0 win against Vitória de Setúbal, which qualified for the round of 16 of the Portuguese Cup, where the "dragons" will face Santa Clara.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Marchesín, Ivan Marcano, Wilson Manafá, Pepe, Alex Telles, Danilo Pereira, Mamadou Ndiaye, Otavinho, J. Corona, M. Marega, V. Aboubakar.
Coach: Sérgio Conceição.

Analysis of Paços de Ferreira

The away team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 8 points won, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Belenenses, by (1‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Tondela, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 10 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça de Portugal, they got a home win against Sanjoanense by (1‑0). In the last 5 away league matches Paços de Ferreira has a record of 1 draw and 4 losses, so they have won 1 point out of 15 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 5 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had problems scoring first, since they have only opened up the score once in the last 11 matches for the Primeira Liga. In 11 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Paços de Ferreira comes to this 12th round in a relegation zone, although with the same record of eight points as Portimonense. A win would allow Pepa's team to jump into the maintenance zone, but the draw will no longer be seen as a bad result, on the contrary, due to the difficulty inherent in traveling to Estádio do Dragão. Having beaten Tondela (1-0) in the final round of the championship, Paços won again last week at Mata Real in the 4th round of the Portuguese Cup. The victim went to Sanjoanense, third-tier, with a goal from Lamine Diaby, early in the game, just 12 minutes into the first half. Behind is a series of three matches with a draw and two defeats, a start that has been relatively promising by Pepa, in charge of the pacense team.

Confirmed Lineup: Ricardo Ribeiro, Bruno Teles, Maracás, Bruno Santos, Marco Baixinho, L. Diaby, Luiz Carlos, Pedrinho Moreira, Zé Uilton, Hélder Ferreira, Douglas Tanque.
Coach: Pepa.

Betting suggestion:

This should be a one-way match between a dominant FC Porto in possession and reacting energetically to the loss of the ball and a Paços de Ferreira who should make the defensive organization their main weapon to try to surprise. The truth is that the pupils of Conceição arrive with morale reinforced by the way they beat the Young Boys, giving again excellent response in the scenario of high demand. Due to the greater number of scoring opportunities that Porto should be able to create, it is expected that the dragons will have a tight finish.
