Guimarães

Preview
FC Porto and Vitória de Guimarães play at Estádio do Dragão in the 21st fixture of the Portuguese League.
Lopetegui's team is 2nd in the league with 46 points from 14 victories, 4 draws and two losses. Playing at home, Porto arrives to this match with three consecutive wins at the League.
In the other side, Guimarães is fifth in the league with 36 points thanks to 10 victories, six draws and four losses. Guimarães can't win away from home at four consecutive matches. 
The head-to-head is very favourable to FC Porto. They won twelve of the last 15 matches between the two teams and have never lost in that period.

Analysis of Porto

In this game, the spanish manager will mount his team in the usual 4-3-3 that allows them to have many possession and create organized attacks. Julen Lopetegui should present his best possible eleven into this match against Vitória.
The most dangerous player of the dragons is Jackson Martínez. He is scoring in almost every game of the season. Ricardo Quaresma is a useful weapon to put the ball in the colombian striker thanks to his excellent capacity of crossing the ball into the area.
In the centre of the pitch, Oliver Torres is playing well. The young spanish player has a great passing ability and that is truly important to create spaces against defensive teams.
But their defence is showing som signs of instability, which is normal for a young group of defenders that have some lack of experience yet.

Probable Team: Fabiano; Danilo, Maicon, Martins Indi, Alex Sandro; Casemiro, Herrera, Óliver Torres; Tello, Quaresma, Jackson Martínez. 

Confirmed Lineup: Fabiano, Maicon, Danilo, Ivan Marcano, Alex Sandro, Ricardo Quaresma, Casemiro, H. Herrera, Óliver Torres, J. Martínez, Y. Brahimi.
Coach: Lopetegui.

Analysis of Vitória Guimarães

Rui Vitória should put his team playing in a 4-3-3 to take advantage of the speed and irreverence of his young players. They should play defensively and will try to explore quick transitions.
Their offensive reference is Alvez. Despite of his low usage the uruguaian player is very effective and scored four goals already.
Their great absence in this match will be André André. He is their best scorer and is suspended for this game.
One of their weaknesses is the defensive organization. When they play against dominant teams they use to give too much space between lines and Porto should take advantage of that.

Probable Eleven: Assis; Gaspar, Afonso, Josué, Breno; Sare, Cafú, Bernard Mensah, Alex; Valente, Alvez.

Confirmed Lineup: Assis, João Afonso, Bruno Gaspar, Josué Sá, Breno, B. Saré, Cafú, B. Mensah, Sami, J. Alvez, Alex.
Coach: Rui Vitória.

Betting suggestion:

Porto should win this. Lopetegui's team is almost forced to win this in order to keep their pursuit to the leader Benfica. Porto failed to win in Guimarães in the reverse fixture but we suppose that this time they won't fail  with their best weapons ready to fire. And Porto is actually in better form then his opponent.
