Guimaraes vs Setubal.
At Afonso Enriques, Guimaraes hosts Setubal with their goal being to achieve their 4th consecutive win and 6th in their latest 7 matches, regardless of where the game was played. Against Maritimo last week they managed to get the 3 points since they won 1-0. On Wednesday they drew 1-1 for the League Cup vs Benfica, playing with their starting team. Meirelles is out, Miguel and Lazaretti too.
Setubal seems to be fighting each match more, and have overcome the demotion line, even if it is just by 1 point. After their win against Maritimo at home with 3-2, and last week they managed to draw against Belenences, although their opponent was better than them during the whole match, also having a shot on bar. There are no problems for them.
Selection: Personally, Guimaraes has not proven its worth yet, since all their latest wins came along mediocre appearances. I will go with the Visitors in the ASIAN +1 in odds around 1.90.
FC Porto vs Pacos Ferreira.
In Dragao, Porto is hosting Pacos and wants yet another win to remain close to the leading Benfica and Braga. They beat Leiria after a lot of effort with 3-2 last week, with Elton deflecting a penalty in 92', giving the 3 points to his team. In their midweek clash against Academica in Coimbra, they drew 0-0, since they played with the second team for the League Cup. Hulk is out, Sapounaru while Fernando can now play after he served his penalization.
Pacos earned an important point agains Olianence away, with their coach saying he is satisfied. They got in front of the score on the 25th minute, but backed down during the 2nd half and received the goal. Olibio is doubtful, all the rest absences do not affect the team.
Selection: I will risk it and will gamble in the champions win, from the half time, in odds that reach the 1.70 in the Asian market. The tradition is with them, combined with their last unfortunate result against Leiria, making me believe that the Dragons will be leading from the first 45 minutes. HOME WIN/HT.
