Belenenses SAD vs Famalicao
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: 9 May 2022, Monday
Kick-off at 20:15 UK / 21:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional (Oeiras).
Belenenses SAD host Famalicao in the last game of the penultimate Primeira Liga round on Monday evening at Estadio Nacional.
The hosts are in a desperate need for points, sitting currently at the very foot of the league standings with just two games left to play.
Nevertheless, Franclim Carvalho’s men are only two points shy of Tondela who currently hold the position that takes to the relegation playoffs after the end of the regular season.
Belenenses will rely on the home court advantage because they have claimed all of their five wins in this term of Primeira Liga at Estadio Nacional.
Belenenses SAD have tightened things drastically in defense of late. They have conceded only a single goal in the previous four home outings and it only came in the 90th minute of the clash against Sporting Braga (a 0-1 defeat) last Saturday.
We fancy Belenenses’ chances of keeping things quiet at the back here as well against Famalicao who removed all doubts about the top-flight survival after a 3-1 victory over Estoril last weekend.
It was the third straight league game without a defeat for Rui Pedro Silva and his squad who are now six points above Tondela (on whom they have a better head to head record) with only two matches to spare.
Belenenses SAD vs Famalicao Head-to-head
- Belenenses SAD will play against tradition here because they have never beaten Famalicao.
- Famalicao will go into this on the back of three wins and two draws in the previous five encounters against Belenenses SAD.
- Only one of the previous four heads to head encounters between the two rivals provided three or more goals.
Belenenses SAD vs Famalicao Prediction
Motivation will play a huge role here because this match has a much greater importance for Belenenses SAD who are desperate for salvation points that would move them away from the very foot of the Primeira Liga standings.
We will thus take the home win as the main betting option at the 2.80 odds, while you can also try with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.72.
