Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho when Famalicao and Porto face each other on Mtachday 25. Famalicao have proved the surprise package of the Primeira Liga so far this term, with the team sitting in the 7th position in the standings, only five points behind the Europa League berth. The fact that they outplayed Sporting CP 3-1 in their last home game is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Porto.
Despite dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Rio Ave, the Dragons remained in the top position in the Primeira Liga table. Sergio Conceicao’s men are eager to regain the domestic trophy, but seeing that the newcomers are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Porto attacker Vincent Aboubakar, who has overcome his injury, is pushing for a start.
This game is postponed.

Porto form biggest rivalries with two other Big Three clubs in Portugal and regular league title contenders – Benfica and Sporting CP.

The Dragons, as they are commonly known in Portugal, are the second most successful Portuguese team with a total of 74 trophies to their name.
Porto hold a record of five consecutive league titles which are part of the total tally of 27 Primeira Liga trophies.
