    Porto have enjoyed a strong campaign in the Portuguese Primeira Liga and will look to continue a good run of form on Friday night when they visit Moreirense.

    The visitors look to once again be fighting a losing title battle with reigning champions Benfica. Despite winning 12 of their last 14 league matches Porto are still four points behind the relentless Eagles, whose only blip this season has been a defeat against the Dragons.

    No doubt Sergio Conceicao’s team will still keep going just in case their rivals slip-up. The foundations for their title challenge this season have been solid defensive displays, as they have kept clean sheets in seven of their last ten league matches, conceding just three goals in the process. In fact, only Benfica have conceded fewer goals in the Portuguese top-flight.

    Porto have been reasonably consistent on their travels this season in the Primeira Liga, winning five of their last eight league matches on their travels.

    The visitors are something of a bogey team for Moreirense, as Porto have lost just once in their last 18 meetings between the two teams, with the visitors recording 12 wins in the process.

    Moreirense have experienced a mixed campaign so far, which has seen the home side pick up just 17 points from their 15 league outings. Their inconsistent results have left them just four points clear of the relegation zone.

    The home side has won just two of their last 11 matches in the Portuguese top-flight. Their recent form illustrates their mixed form, as they have won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five league outings.

    One positive for the home team is that they are unbeaten in four home games in the Primeira Liga, having won their last two games on home soil.

    Forebet predicts that Porto will record a comfortable win over Moreirense in a high-scoring encounter to continue their title challenge.
