Football Prediction of the Day Santa Clara vs Porto
I see a big favorite in this meeting, namely Porto and I don’t see much why it would hinder.
The only thing that makes me think is that he is playing away, but I don’t think that will be a problem.
Santa Clara scored 0.82 goals on his own field and scored 1.18, while Porto scored 2.0 goals on average and received 0.91.
Guests are required to stay in the race for the title and I think it will succeed, especially since it is in very good shape.
