Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Porto will be looking to build on a 4-0 win over Boavista when they take on Ferreira at Estadio da Capital do Movel on Matchday 29. The Dragons are three points clear of their bitter rivals Benfica, meaning that they can’t afford any complacency in Monday’s football game. Mali international Moussa Marega, who scored a brace in the Porto derby, will be the man to watch in the away team.
Ferreira, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Belenenses and Tondela. Os Castores regained a much-needed confidence, with the team escaping the danger zone, and, no doubt, they are capable of making life difficult for the league leaders. Ferreira recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, and given Porto’s hot and cold form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
