Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Porto will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Maritimo when they take on Desportivo Aves on Matchday 27. The Dragons quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Famalicao, with the team regaining top position in the standings. Porto are seen as hot favourites to beat Nuno Manta Santos’ troops at Estadio Clube Desportivo das Aves, and the league leaders are likely to go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side.
Full-back Alex Telles misses the match through suspension, while centre-back Ivan Marcano is sidelined with injury. The hosts, on the other hand, restarted the season with back-to-back defeats to Belenenses and Tondela, with the team extending their losing run in Primeira Liga to five games. Anyhow, David faces Goliath in Tuesday’s football match, and anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise.
