Belenenses vs Portimonense Prediction

Belenenses SAD failed to bounce back from their dismal losing streak and admitted a fourth successive defeat last week against Vitoria Setubal, by a 1-0 scoreline. The hosts hardly showed any signs of promise in that latter matchup and managed no more than one measly shot on target throughout that clash.

With just one win from their past seven fixtures, the home team are currently hovering right above the relegation zone

On the other hand, Portimonense were at the losing end of a thumping 3-0 scorecard in their most recent clash with Aves on the road. The visitors have not been coping any better in their campaign. At present, they are on a disappointing five-match winless run in the Primeira Liga.

To make matters worse, the guests have been alternating between draws and defeats in their last six outings. It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have not had a taste of success away from home in the top flight, since their 2-1 win over Tondela, way back in August.

Taking into account that Portimonense have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last four visits here either, Belenenses are the front runners to come away with all three points.

Be that as it may, the hosts have been succumbing to back to back defeats in their past two fixtures at home. Considering that half of their previous four meetings with each other here have also ended as a tie, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.

Furthermore, Belenenses have just not looked sharp in the final third, even in their own backyard. Miserably, they have failed to get the names on the scoresheet in half of their previous eight matchups here.

Given that the reverse fixture of this clash also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect goals to be hard to come by on Sunday.
