Betting suggestion:

We hope, without much surprise, that the best chances for goals belong to the FC Porto team, as it is going through a very positive phase of the season and has a squad far superior to the opponent. On the other hand, Nacional should disturb the Porto players during the 90' of the game, especially through counterattacks. That said, favoritism tends, therefore, to FC Porto, but we find it very interesting to take chances in the goal market.

Preview

The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 20‑12‑2020, and ended in a (2‑0) win by Porto. Nacional registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis Nacional

The home team comes to this stage of the Taça de Portugal (8th Finals) after having played in the previous rounds against: Leixões and Casa Pia. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 24 goals scored and 13 conceded. They come to this match after a home loss against Sporting CP by (0‑2). Nacional has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. They have conceded the first goal in 7 of their 14 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 12 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 5 of their 13 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Nacional's team comes to this clash with a 0-2 home defeat to Sporting, in a game counting for the Portuguese championship. It should be noted that the Madeirans eliminated Casa Pia and Leixões in the previous qualifiers of the Portuguese Cup. In this home game, coach Luís Freire should play in 4-3-3, favoring quick attacks, especially through the aisles: Brayan Riascos and João Camacho are very fast and competent in the defense-offense transition. Striker Brayan Riascos is Nacional's top scorer in official matches, with 8 goals scored. Kalindi Souza is out of this game due to physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: Riccardo Piscitelli, Pedrão, João Vigário, Rúben Freitas, Rui Correia, Ibrahim Alhassan Abdullahi, Larry Azouni, Francisco Ramos, Bryan Rochez, Brayan Riascos, Kenji Gorre.
Coach: Luís Freire.
