Portimonense will face Porto at the Vila Real de Santo António on Wednesday in a friendly clash between the two teams.
The Alvinegros struggled last season but again avoided the drop as they extended their stay in the top flight to a seventh campaign. They finished 15th in the Primeira Liga with 34 points from 34 games, comfortably eight points above Maritimo in the relegation play-offs.
Portimonense beat Celtic 4-1 in their last friendly and will be looking to do better this week.
Porto, meanwhile, put in another strong showing in the league last season, pipping rivals Benfica to the title, even as the Eagles held on to a two-point lead at the top. The Dragons finished second in the table with 85 points from 34 games but still secured silverware as they lifted the Taca de Portugal and Taca da Liga titles in another successful campaign.
The Dragons will be looking to start their pre-season campaign on a positive note as they target a return to the Portuguese top flight.
Portimonense vs Porto Prediction
Portimonense are on a four-game losing streak and have won just two of their last 14 games. They have not won a game in this fixture since 2018 and are massive underdogs heading into Wednesday’s clash.
Porto, meanwhile, closed out the previous campaign with a brilliant 12-game winning streak and have lost just one domestic game all year. The sheer gulf in class and quality between the two teams should see the Dragons win this one.
Prediction: Portimonense 0-3 Porto
