In what will be the first match of the Portuguese Cup quarter-finals, FC Porto will welcome Varzim to visit Estádio do Dragão, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. Sérgio Conceição’s team justifiably have hopes of returning to Jamor to fight for the trophy and even, in theory, have a way to go. Last Friday, FC Porto suffered but beat out Moreirense (4-2) for the championship, remaining in the race for the lead, four points behind Benfica. On the other side, there will be a Varzim who militates in the Pro League, where he has been doing a good campaign, which allows him to dream about the fight for promotion. In the last round of the championship, Paulo Alves’s team was surprised at home by Académico de Viseu, losing 2-1 and interrupting a run of six unbeaten games. Will the Póvoa team be able to surprise the great favoritism of the “dragons”?

Porto vs Varzim Soccer Betting Tips
In a match that should have a clear command of FC Porto, it will not be overlooked the possibility of Varzim, in a strategy based on quick offensive transitions, to contribute to a game with a few goals. The offensive quality of the “dragons” should come to the fore in a competition to which the club and the coach themselves attach great importance, even though the team may again weaken defensively, even for the casualties they will have to deal with in that sector.
