at Estádio do Dragão against Chaves.

Their goal ratio counted with 82 goals scored and 18 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.7 goals per match.
Playing at home, they were very strong, although they have also had an equally positive record away from home.
The home side has already played 7 friendly matches, getting 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. On the past weekend, they have won the Portuguese Super Cup by beating Aves by 3-1.

FC Porto vs Chaves – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It would be a real surprise if FC Porto slipped up on the first round already, something that I don’t fancy will happen, especially playing at the Dragão.
Alongside with the hosts’ victory, I expect to watch a low-scoring affair, taking into consideration several aspects.
The visiting side, independently of the results obtained on the pre-season, has shown 1 thing, which is quality on their defensive process.
So much that, on the 7 matches they’ve played, they’ve only conceded 2 or more goals on 2 occasions.
Well, the “Under” selection gains even more value if we think that Sérgio Conceição won’t certainly be able to count with Marega and Soares, while Brahimi is still doubtful.
I believe that the current champions will get 3 points already, but without showing off on the goals’ chapter.
