  • Competition: Portugal - League Cup
  • Date: Friday, 25th, November 2022
  • Kickoff: 20:45 UK/21.45 CET
  • Venue: Estadio do Dragao (Porto)

Porto managed to secure the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League, finishing the group at the top of the table, thus leaving "sensation" Club Brugge, Bayer Leverkusen and Atletico Madrid behind. However, one gets the impression that "Dragoes" have thrown away all their cards on the international stage, neglecting the domestic championship, which is why they are already 8 points behind their bitter rival - Benfica. Given that they are already participating on three fronts, the question is what are Porto's ambitions in the Allianz Cup.

Meanwhile, Mafra is competing in the second tier of Portuguese football since the 2018/19 campaign. In the previous three seasons, they recorded respectable results, and now they will aim to improve last season's 9th position. The boys in the yellow-green jersey are playing erratically since the start of the season and are currently positioned in 12th position with 16 collected points. Mafra is aware that they are big outsiders against Porto, but they will try to avoid a heavy defeat.

Porto vs Mafra Betting Tips: Under 3.5

Same opponents, different competition. It will be the second clash of the teams in a very short period - this time in the League Cup. Just two weeks ago, Porto managed to continue their defense of the Taca de Portugal trophy in style, beating them routinely 3-0. 

Porto has never managed to lift the trophy in the "Allianz Cup" so far, and their ambitions are questionable this time as well. They will be in the group with Mafra, Chaves and Wisela, which means that the coach will give a chance to some players with less playing time.

The popular "Dragoes" have significantly raised the quality of the game in recent weeks and as a consequence the results have arrived. Namely, after losing 0-2 against Benfica, Porto managed to "ties" six games without defeat, in which they triumphed five times.

Years ago, Porto's trademark was a brilliant and granite defense, which is the same case this season. They have only conceded three goals at home in the league, so we believe they can keep their clean sheet intact, even without some key defenders.

Mafra is a team that plays very attractive football in the championship, but they definitely have nothing to look for against Porto. Porto will not be able to count on some key players due to their obligations at the World Cup in Qatar, but even without them, they have enough firepower and defensive strength to ensure a clean and routine triumph.
