Match start: 22:15 (GMT+1)
Tournament: The Primeira Liga.
On Monday the leader of the championship of Portugal Porto will spend its 16th round’s match. The mid level team Nacional has to overcome the attacking attempts of the Dragons.
The last visit on Estádio do Dragão for the team from Madeira is still infecting the dreams – prior to the getting into the Division Second 2 years ago Nacional has lost away match to Porto with the score 0:7.
By the way, this victory became for the White and Blues the largest in the XXI century. They also can’t complaint on previous successes: they won the team from Madeira in frames of the home matches with the scores 4:0, 3:0, 3:0, 5:0.
If to look at the current tournament position and pay attention on Porto performances on home arena we can predict very sad future for Nacional. It has won in two last games but those were home matches against the underdog Chaves and Guimaraes.
Now the mid level team is facing away match against the team that has suffered only one loss in 16 home matches and has tied one match playing in not optimal line-up. P
orto has scored a lot of goals lately and we can predict that it will score at least 2-3 goals in the forthcoming match.
This will be enough for a moderate victory as the rival won’t probably impress and surprise the audience.
