[Portugal Primera Liga] GD Chaves VS FC Porto 11.2 [Copy Link]

Chaves: Is in excellent shape ( Recent Form: D W L D W )
Chaves is well on course this season to secure participation in the play-offs for the Europa League. The team of coach Luis Castro is on an impressive advance in the rankings. The team lost only one of its last twelve league matches. With thirty points from 21 games, Chaves is excellent for half of the competition. Last week, Chaves triumphed on a visit to the lowfly Feirense. It was on the side of Chaves William who once again showed how important he is to the team. With his eighth goal in fifteen games, the Brazilian opened the score. Feirense came alongside in a goal by Tomas Rocha, but in the second half, the men of Luis Castro would back their rights. It was not until the 87th minute that Mateus Pereira was crowned the match winner. Because of this Chaves has won four of the last five away games. The team also achieved excellent results in its own Estádio Miguel Branco Teixeira. The last eight league matches at home remained Chaves without defeat. The last team that managed to win at Chaves was Feirense on August 26th. Porto is thus warned of the good form of Chaves, despite the fact that the team can not break any pots against the top teams this season. Against Porto and Benfica, it lost 3-0 earlier this season, while Sporting was 5-1 too strong for the Castro men.

Porto: Beat Sporting this week ( Recent Form: W D D W W )
FC Porto is still active on three fronts and will finish eight matches in 27 days. The goals for Porto in the second half of the season are clear: to double in their own country and to get as far as possible in the Champions League. On the way to the Portuguese cup, Os Dragões (the Dragons) have to deal with Sporting in a double meeting. The first game was closed last Wednesday in their own stadium with a minimal difference: 1-0. In the commentary, trainer Sergio Conceição said he would more than win the victory: "Jorge Jesus had clearly come to defend himself. In the first half we created four big chances, while Iker Casillas did not have to do any rescue. Fortunately, we managed to secure the victory in the second half. ' Tiquinho Soares crowned the match winner in the Estádio do Dragão. The Brazilian, who this season plays the second violin behind Moussa Marega and Vincent Aboubakar, was allowed to start from the first whistle because of an injury from the latter and he won the coach's confidence with the only goal of the match. It was only the first victory of Porto on a team from the top-three this season. In the league, the direct clashes with title competitors Sporting and Benfica ended in a goalless draw and in the final of the League Cup after penalties Sporting lost. Incidentally, it seems that Porto will have to miss her driving force in the midfield, Danilo, for a long time. The ex-Roda JC player can not be forgotten this season at the midfield of Porto but has to leave the coming weeks absent. His position will be taken over by Oliver Torres or Sergio Oliveira, who had a starting place against Sporting. Also base players like Ivan Marcano and Vincent Aboubakar are probably not against Chaves, which gives the chance to Diego Reyes and Tiquinho Soares.

After all, six of the seven last games played by Chaves ended in both teams to score. I expect that now. Porto usually get a goaltje against in away games and must now also miss central defender Marcano and the lock on the door in the midfield, Danilo Pereira.
