Desportivo Aves fell to a heavy defeat in their last league outing and that has pushed them further into relegation troubled waters.
They host the league leaders in this game and it doesn’t look like they would stand a chance of surviving some kind of beating here.
The host managed to hold Benfica to a 1-1 draw at the weekend in their Taca Da Liga game and they would be looking to build on that in this game, but Porto are a different and perhaps tougher opponent so this game would be a very hard one for them to even pick up a draw.
FC Porto did beat Belenenses 2-1 in their own Taca Da Liga game to top their group and reach the next. They currently lead the Primera division after a shock defeat for Sporting gave them a 4 points lead, so they would be looking to win this game and keep their lead at the top of the table.
FC Porto have won all of their last 6 matches, while Aves have lost 3, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 6 matches.
