Belenenses vs Portimonense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.30 UK/ 16.30 CET
Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisabon – Oeiras).

Two mid-table teams from the Primeira Liga lock horns this weekend. Belenenses has been going on comparatively steady in the league in contrast to their counterparts, Portimonense. The former tries to squeeze in wins whenever they can since they periodically fail in performing well against top-rated and in-form sides.

Portimonense is going through a very bad patch of games and as such poses no risk to their hosts. Especially on the road, their consistency has been questioned by many teams. And with the turn of the new year, even their home ties, where they used to have some upper hand, has deserted them. They are surely in for a tough set of ninety minutes against Belenenses.
