Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

KickOff's prediction and odds from the bookmakers suggest that this Liga NOS tie is going to be entertaining, with at least 3 goals to scored in the fixture. As both sides are unconvincing in the WDW market given their recent form, we're going with the statistics and past head-to-head (H2H) records below, both of which point strongly towards on over 2.5 goals top tip.
