Famalicao vs Desportivo Aves
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho, Famalicao
As many experts and football fans were predicting, Famalicao’s form has started to decline in 2020.
One of the biggest surprise packages in this campaign have spent a lot of time sitting in top three positions in the early stages. Now, poor streak of four games without win has pushed them down to sixth place.
Grabbing one of the European spots is still very achievable for this recently promoted side, but they need to return to winning ways as soon as possible. This Sunday’s game against Aves is a good place to start.
Famalicao vs Aves: Head-to-head
Famalicao are fairly new to the competitive scene in Portugal, so only six head to head clashes against Aves is not surprising. The score is tied at two victories each at the moment. The first duel between them in 2019 was extremely interesting to watch, ending in five-goals thriller and 3-2 victory for Famalicao.
The average number of goals seen in their encounters so far is 2.33 per duel.
Famalicao vs Aves: Prediction
Visitors are labelled as massive underdogs in this clash at 6.00 odds, which is not surprising if you take a look at the table. They are last placed squad with only 12 points from 20 games and -18 goal difference.
The most recent form is not looking bad though – two victories against Portimonense and Maritimo in the last four weeks. There were a couple of disappointing performances in between like 0-4 home loss to Rio Ave and 0-1 to Boavista.
Aves have won important points in the last four weeks and shown many signs of progress. They also scored in three out of last four games on the road, so we see good value in backing the BTTS option here at 1.80.
Hosts are almost impossible to predict at this point, so we would rather skip full time winner market. 1:1 correct score seems worth a small stake too.
