Porto - Vitoria

Asian Handicap
Pick: Porto (-1.25)
Odds: 1.91
Stake: 1

Match date: 22/04/2021

When everything seemed over in the title race the recent results of Sporting give hope to Porto to chase them. Sporting drew three of their last five matches and now Porto is just seven points behind but with a game in hand. So a win tonight will bring Porto just to four points behind Sporting with six games left to be played. Surely that will make Sporting very nervous and the possibility to drop more points is real.

Porto has been in great form lately and are in an unbeaten run of 21 games winning 16 of those in the process. Their good form was evident also in Champions League where they eliminated Juventus and fought bravely against Chelsea, especially in the return leg, in the quarter finals.

Now that Porto is out of Champions League, they will focus entirely on their Primeira Liga title hunt. Porto have won six games in a row in the league and they need to maintain that perfect streak until the end of the season if they are to catch leaders Sporting. In this context I expect Porto to continue their great run and win this match and hopefully cover also the handicap.

On the other hand Vitoria Guimaraes comes to this match after a much needed win against Santa Clara which stopped a poor run of five consecutive defeats which costed Joao Henriques his job. Bino took over, but he also started with a heavy defeat 3-0 by Portimonense and I am not sure how much they have improved even though they won against Santa Clara.

Still Vitoria will by no means be an easy opponent tonight for Porto as they are chasing a European place for next season and currently are in sixth position which gives them the right to play in Conference League next season. So every point is important for them and I expect them to give a fight to Porto.

Porto will full team available while Vitoria will miss Quaresma.

?To sum up I am backing up Porto here to win because of their current form and good morale and because of the poor form of their opponents which have won just two of their last 12 matches. Looking at recent struggles of Sporting, Porto will be more than motivated to play their chances and fight until the end. So a Porto win is my call here and let’s see if they can cover the handicap also!.
