FC Porto host Tondela next Friday at Estádio do Dragão, in a game to be counted for the First League, with a start scheduled for 9pm. The Dragons reach this match in the second position of the table (to 1 point of Sporting) but with a game in arrears because last Monday the game that disputed in the ground of Estoril was interrupted at the interval by security problems with one of the benches. The second part of this game will be held on February 21, with the Dragons losing 1-0 at half-time. This reception to Tondela will be held in an environment of some discomfort as the postponement of the game with Estoril along with the presence of FC Porto in the Portuguese Cup, League Cup and Champions League make the schedule of the Dragons very complicated in the coming time. The Tondela arrives in this match in tenth place and hopeful of being able to take advantage of the overload of the Port to take some point of the Dragon … It will not be easy!
In the reception to Tondela last season were scored 4 goals (4-0 for Porto).
In the last 5 games that Porto did in the Dragon there were always more than 2.5 goals (total of 24 goals !!)
Porto are the most successful team in the league, with 45 goals scored in 17 games.
Tondela scored in 8 of their last 11 matches as a visitor (for all competitions).
We hope that Porto creates many chances of goals, as it has done in the Dragon and we do not rule out the possibility of Tondela taking advantage of the backlash to also materialize.
Prediction Today:over 2.5 goals
