Porto vs Pacos Ferreira build-up & previous line-ups:
After putting together a run of eight matches unbeaten in all competitions to start this season, Porto — on the day they celebrated their 128th anniversary — saw that run end at the hands of Champions League group rivals Liverpool who ran out 1-5 winners at Estádio Do Dragão, leaving Conceição’s side with some soul-searching coming into this weekend’s league action. The Dragons have been near perfect in Portugal’s top division ahead of matchday eight. They are one of three clubs yet to lose, alongside championship rivals Benfica and Sporting CP, having accumulated five wins from seven played. Porto will also be seeking to stretch their winning run at home to 10 matches.
In their previous games at Porto’s home, Pacos Ferreira have returned with no wins from 22 matches played. In fact, they’ve only managed three draws, the last of which came in May 2011 when a Rui Vitória-led side came from 3-1 down to register a 3-3 stalemate, Pizzi — who truly made his name at Benfica — netted an 87th-minute equaliser. As things currently stand, Paços Ferreira are positioned in eighth place after their opening seven Primeira Liga outings, Jorge Simão’s side have accumulated two wins and two losses but head into Saturday’s game on a three-game drawing streak. They’ve also won just two of their last 11 road games which includes six defeats and features a 2-0 loss at Porto earlier this year.

Player to watch: Luis Díaz (Porto)
Porto are no strangers to unearthing a gem and moving them on for an unearthly sum of money. A future example could be Luis Díaz who is courting attention from Barcelona and Liverpool according to reports. Their interest makes sense when you look at the numbers he’s already posting. The 24-year-old Colombian midfielder has registered five goals across Porto’s opening seven league matches this season. He’s been involved with a goal or assist in all but two of the Dragon’s Primeira Liga games heading into this latest round of fixtures. Last time out against Gil Vicente saw a stretch of four games with his name on the scoresheet or assist column end and Díaz will be looking to get back on the horse when Pacos Ferreira pays them a visit.
