Belenenses vs Moreirense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 4 February 2019
Kick-Off at 20:15 UK / 21:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional (Jamor).
Belenenses and Moreirense will drop curtain on Matchday No 20 in the top flight of Portuguese football on Monday evening at Estadio Nacional.
Both teams are enjoying overwhelming campaigns in this term of Primeira Liga as they stand right next to each other in the top half of the league ladder hallway through the season.
O Belem will be hoping to return to winning ways after they clinched only one point in past two rounds. They disappointed in a 2-2 draw at home to Tondela last weekend, while mid-week’s round saw them fall 3-0 to Porto away at Dragao.
Moreirense, on the other side, ended a two-loss streak with a 2-1 victory over Nacional last Monday at Parque Desportivo Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas. Midfielder Chiquinho offered his best performance of the season as his brace made the difference for Os Verdes e Brancos on the occasion.
Belenenses vs Moreirense: Head-to-head
The head to head stats speaks in Belenenses’ favour.
The hosts won 10, drew 7 and lost 5 of 22 meetings with Moreirense.
O Belem were particularly dominant in home ties against Os Verdes e Brancos (7 wins and 3 draws in 10 games).
Teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met each other in this term of Primeira Liga back in late-August last year.
Belenenses vs Moreirense: Prediction
We expect a close encounter between two evenly-matched sides. Both of them were fairly easy to break down of late which is why backing goals at both ends does not look to be a bad call here.
The hosts shipped five goals in last two league affairs, while Moreirense did not keep a single clean sheet in last three Primeira Liga outings.
The draw is the most likable of three outcomes and we would not be surprised to see the scoreline identical to the one from the first H2H clash between them in this season (1-1).
