Our prediction for this Portugal League Cup match:
Nacional and Portimonense go head to head at Estadio da Madeira in the Taca da Liga round 1. Nacional are not enjoying a season to remember, but a 4-0 win over Porto B surely gave them a confidence boost. Colombia international Pipe Gomez scored a brace at the weekend, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay.
O Portimao, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Braga, but beating Nacional in Funchal is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Estadio de Madeira, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw. Both Carlinhos and Junio are likely to miss out with injuries, while Rui Gomez and Rochez are pushing for a recall, speaking of the away side.
