Porto v Leixões Live Online: Where to Watch, TV Streams, Team News, Portuguese League Cup 3rd round 12.23.2023

Porto and Leixões will meet again in the Taça da Liga 3rd round at the Estádio Do Dragão Stadium, Porto Saturday, December 23, 2023. Live streaming information, how to watch, match previews and lineup predictions can be found in this article.

This Saturday evening, the Estadio Do Dragao will be packed with football fans who will be watching the impactless match between Porto and Leixoes. Even though it is certain that both teams have no chance of winning the Taca da Liga title this season, this match still has its own meaning.

Porto, who were previously defending champions, had to give up their crown after losing 3-1 to Estoril. This defeat is certainly a major blow for the team known as the Dragons. However, behind this disappointment, there is a golden opportunity for Porto to give some of its key players a rest.

In recent weeks, Porto have gone through a rollercoaster of emotions. They managed to beat Shakhtar Donetsk with a score of 5-3 in the Champions League match, and ensured their place in the last 16. However, after such a big performance, they looked tired as they were beaten 2-0 by Sporting Lisbon in the domestic league.

Porto have an impressive record against Leixoes, with the last eight matches without defeat. However, their last meeting took place in January 2019, so this match will be a proving ground for both teams.

On the other hand, Leixoes has shown extraordinary fighting spirit. Despite being in a relegation playoff position in the Segunda Liga, they managed to reach the Taca da Liga group stage. This achievement is proof that Leixoes should not be underestimated.

Leixoes come into this match on the back of a five-match winless streak. However, they have shown solid defense with two games without conceding a goal in the first two rounds of this competition. With less pressure, Leixoes might be able to play more freely and provide a satisfying performance for his fans.

In this match, Porto will lose Pepe who received a red card in the match against Sporting. Meanwhile, Ivan Marcano (ACL), Samuel Portugal (groin) and Gabriel Veron (Achilles) are still doubtful. In the Leixoes camp, Alhassan Wakaso, who previously received a red card, has now returned and is eligible to appear.

Even though this match does not affect the position of the two teams, this match will still be a proving ground for both teams. Porto certainly doesn’t want to lose their face in front of their own supporters, while Leixoes certainly wants to show that they can compete with a team like Porto.

As additional information, Estoril, who beat Porto in the group stage of the Portuguese League Cup, will face Benfica in the semifinals which will take place this weekend.
