Académica VS FC Porto match analysis

Derby of the rounds. Sometimes it was impossible that Academica plays derby match with FC Porto. However, Academica this season really played well and fully deserved the top. Academica deserved good position thanks to excellent results at home, where they won three matches and played tied one. Naval (3:0), Guimaraes (3:1) and Nacional (2:1) are defeated, while Olhanense played tied (1:1). Two of them were tied at half-time, and other two Academica won. Away, Academica won and lost twice at half-time, and among those victories was that one over Benfica in Lisbon. Porto is certainly the best Portugal team. They leader of the league with seven wins and one tied match, goal difference 19:4. Away they won vs Naval (1:0), Rio Ave (2:0), Nacional (2:0) and played tied with Guimaraes (1:1) where they received the first and only goal. Versus Naval HT finished tied, while other three matches Porto won behind HT. At home was the same situation, Porto won three matches from the first half-time and one match they played tied at HT. But, playing against each other, nine of previous twelve matches finished tied at HT. Given that this match is meeting of two teams from the top of the table, and that the weaker team is host, I think the outcome will be solved in the second half.
