Belenenses vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction & Match Preview

Belenenses vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Thursday, 11 June 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisbon – Oeiras).

In yet another match under closed doors, Belenenses will host the Conquerors this Thursday.

The home team is on a purple patch after a string of disappointing results. But they are way below what we consider an average team.

They are 11th in the table with 12 defeats and only 8 wins in 25 matches. They are worse at home with 4 wins and 6 defeats in 12 matches here.

The visitors have done pretty well in matches on the road. They have managed to stay unbeaten in 9 of their 12 outings this season.

Guimaraes have a good record against this opposition in recent times, so we can expect them to triumph.

Belenenses vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Prediction

The last two visits to this ground proved fruitful for the Conquerors. They have scored 10 goals in both of those games and conceded only once. They are on an unbeaten run with three wins and a draw.

All those three wins came against the team’s way below them in the table. The draw against giants- Sporting was the pick of the lot where they scored 2 past one of the strong defenses in the competition. So I think we can witness the visitors getting all three points.

The hosts have a problem in scoring goals just like they have problems in defense. They do not have a scoring average of at least a goal per match but have conceded way more than what they scored.

However, since they have an unbeaten run going on and a head to head streak at home, I am backing them to get goals.
