Duel in the cup, duel in the league – FC Porto and Benfica Lisbon donate nothing. A hot battle for the title is on the horizon in both competitions. Last weekend, the “Dragões” from Porto fended off a match ball from the Primeira Liga leaders. In the top game, FC Porto won 3-2 against Benfica Lisbon.

A new clash can now occur in the cup final. In the semi-finals of the “Taça de Portugal”, Benfica Lisbon and Porto are on the verge of entering the final with good first-leg results. The “Dragões” have a comparatively easier task with second division Academico Viseu.
With the home advantage behind you, the final ticket should not be at risk. Bookies only offer odds of 1.13 for a home win for Porto against Academico Viseu. A tip is recommended, but it is unlikely to bring a profit. There was a draw between the two clubs in the first leg, but this was largely due to the strong rotation at Porto.
Should at least part of the first guard now play, a shooting festival can certainly be assumed. In our Porto against Academico Viseu prediction, we expect the home side to close the bag before the change of sides.
Porto – Statistics & current form
The “Dragões” can dream of the title again. With the home win over Benfica Lisbon, the gap to the championship lead was minimized last weekend. The blue-whites also fended off a match ball, especially since the championship would have been theoretically unreachable if they were ten points behind.
It is not yet clear how the hosts from Porto will play against the second division team. Coach Sergio Conceicao will try to avoid the double burden and spare some top performers. Changes will therefore be expected at the latest during the course of the game. If the “Dragões” start with the best possible line-up, a shooting festival can be expected in the first half.
In the first leg there was a 1-1 draw for FC Porto in Viseu. Numerous top performers were spared. Due to the important away goal, the final entry of the “Dragões” does not seem to be really endangered, especially since it cannot be assumed that the second division team will win in Porto.
Cross-competition, Porto has won 15 of their last 17 home games. Sporting Braga (1: 2) and Glasgow Rangers (1: 1) were the only teams that could defy the “Dragões” in Porto. In the last four competitive games, Sergio Conceicao’s team was particularly in a good mood. A total of ten goals were scored, three of them in the recent home game against Benfica.
Conceicao will have no serious losses at home against the second division team. Since the next important league game is scheduled for the weekend, it can be assumed that some top performers will be spared.
Probable lineup of Porto:
➦ Costa – Manafa, Leite, Mbemba, Saravia – Baro, Loum, Nakajima, Diaz – Tiquinho, Marega

Academico Viseu – Statistics & current form
The “Os Viriatos” are among the positive surprises in this year’s “Taça de Portugal”. Academico Viseu benefited largely from the luck of the lottery, but still fought his way into the semi-finals. Porto is now expected to be the final destination, even if there is still no preliminary decision with the draw almost a week ago.
The second division must either win in Porto or play with at least two goals to reach the final of the “Taça de Portugal”. However, there are not really many arguments for a cup sensation for the second division side. Academico Viseu is messing around in the middle of the table in the LigaPro.
In addition, with an away record of 4-3-3 in the second division there is not much optimism. In four of the last five competitive games, the “Os Viriatos” also remained without a win. If you look back at Academico Viseu’s previous season, it is hardly surprising.
Last week Academico Viseu really won the home draw. Coach Rui Borges can therefore be quite satisfied with the performance of his team. Participation in the semi-finals of the “Taça de Portugal” is definitely a success. It remains to be seen whether disassembly in Porto can be prevented.
Academico Viseu probable lineup:
➦ Fernandes – Silva, Pica, Mathaus, Silva – Luisinho, Medina, Oliveira, Patric – Ferreira, Joao

Porto vs Academico Viseu Free Betting Tips
The final move from FC Porto is only a matter of form. It cannot be assumed that Academico Viseu of the “Estádio do Dragão” will eliminate the runner-up positions in the Primeira Liga. Even if the “Dragões” are again not in the best line-up, we assume a clear home win.
With a second guard, the blue-whites still have enough quality on the offensive to play the second division team on the wall. We therefore expect a shooting festival in the first half.
