Belenenses vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 6 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional (Jamor).
The well congested schedule will be continued for Belenenses on Sunday afternoon as they are set to play host to 5th-placed Vitoria Guimaraes on Matchday No 16. The hosts will hope to return to winning ways after two separate 1-2 defeats to the likes of Porto (Taca da Liga) and Sporting Lisbon (Primeira Liga) in past two games.
O Belem could move level on points with 5th-placed rivals with a victory here. They generally played very well of late and actually suffered their first league loss in nine games on Thursday falling 2-1 to Sporting away at Estadio Jose Alvalade.
The visitors were also enjoying a tremendous spell of form with 12 consecutive games without a defeat in all competitions. It came to an end on Wednesday when Guimaraes fell 1-0 away at Nacional.
Belenenses vs Vitoria Guimaraes Head-to-head
Vitoria lead the head to head tie by four wins, but they have a horrendous record in matches at Estadio Nacional.
O Belem won 11, drew 6 and lost only 4 of 21 home meetings with Guimaraes.
Just one goal was seen in last two H2H games, while four of last five H2H outings ended with fewer than three goals scored.
Belenenses vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction
Belenenses were thriving in the final third lately under Silas. They scored at least a goal in all of past five league affairs, as many as 12 in total along the way. O Belem won three and drew one of last four league games on the home patch.
They will have quite a big task maintaining such fine attacking form against Os Vimaranenses who allowed only two goals in last four fixtures across competitions. The visitors conceded no more than two goals in past seven matches on the road.
We expect a huge battle at the center of the park in the clash between two evenly-matches sides. The draw in a low-scoring contest is our verdict here.
