Betting suggestion:

We have determined that the best chances of goals are for FC Porto, the current runners-up of the Portuguese league, as they work with the support of their fans and have a much better squad than their opponents. On the other hand, Varzim has no weapons to create great opportunities during the 90' of game, however, very fast counterattacks will be expected. Thus, favoritism leans towards FC Porto, but we still find it very interesting to approach the goal market.
