Total Goals Over 2.5

Porto hasn’t been as effective as we expect lately since their matches have gone over 2.5 total goals only twice in the last five Primeira rounds. Meanwhile, Nacional has gone over 2.5 total goals in 7 of their last 8 games, usually conceding a lot more goals than scoring. In the last five h2h duels between these teams, we’ve seen three or more goals four times. All of this makes our predictions of over 2.5 total goals a smart choice.

Porto to Win at Half Time and Full Time

The current champions are six points behind Sporting in the first place, so they need to keep on winning to remain in the race until the end. The game against one of the worst teams in the league seems like a great way to keep the form going, especially since Porto has five wins in the last five meetings against Nacional. 11 of 18 Porto wins have come after leading at half time, and we expect this to happen again on Sunday.

Porto to Win with Handicap (-1)

As we already mentioned, Porto has won all of the last five head-to-head matches against Nacional, so another win is more than expected, especially since Nacional has lost eight games in a row. Also, all of those h2h wins for Porto have been with at least a two-goal difference, so betting on Porto to win against a handicap seems like a good bet. If you want even higher odds, you can try betting on Porto to win with a -2 handicap since they’ve done it twice in the last five games against Nacional.

Nacional vs Porto preview: Porto mounting a title challenge

The two teams are in drastically different situations – Porto is fighting to win another title, while Nacional is trying to avoid relegation. Our preview can help you find out more about the current state of affairs of these two teams:

Nacional

Positioned at the very bottom of the league, Nacional is in a dire situation. They are in poor form with eight straight losses, but they still have a chance to save themselves from relegation since they are only three points behind Maritimo in the spot that leads to the relegation playoffs, and five points behind Boavista, outside of the relegation zone. The team has a clean bill of health, with Witi being the only player unavailable due to injuries.

Porto

After getting eliminated by Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Porto can now focus entirely on the Portuguese league in which they are trailing Sporting by 6 points in the race for the title. The team is in great form since they are on a five-game winning streak in the league and unbeaten in the last 20 league games. Porto does have a few injury problems, with Mbaye, Marcano, and Costa out for the upcoming duel.
