Famalicao vs Moreirense
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Thursday, 4 February 2021
Kick-Off at 21.30 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho, Vila Nova de Famalicao.
Famalicao and Moreirense are set to battle it out in a low-profile 17th round of the Primeira Liga tie on Thursday evening at Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho.
Although there are seven positions separating the two outfits in the bottom half of the standings, the hosts could cut the gap between them and Moreirense down to just 1 point with a victory here.
The team led by Joao Pedro Sousa will have an imperative to snatch a result here as they have to travel to the capital to take on the likes of Benfica at the weekend.
Nevertheless, getting the spoils here will be easier said than done for the hosts who have been on a disastrous run of form lately. They lost five of the last six Primeira Liga outings. They are struggling badly for goals going into this fixture, having scored just one in the last two league defeats to Vitoria Guimaraes and Nacional.
Famalicao vs Moreirense Head-to-head
- Moreirense will rely on the head to head tradition after losing just one of six meetings with Famalicenses.
- Both of the last two H2H encounters between the two sides ended in draws (3-3 and 1-1 respectively).
- Famalicao’s only win against Moreirense came in a pre-season friendly played in the summer of 2015.
Famalicao vs Moreirense Prediction
We’ve mentioned Famalicao’s attacking woes above in the preview. However, Moreirense have been even worse in this field throughout the season. Os Verdes e Brancos scored no more than two goals in seven away fixtures in this term of Primeira Liga. They will enter this match on a low having suffered a catastrophic 0-4 defeat to Braga on the home court on Monday.
Looking at the well congested Primeira Liga standings, we could argue about calling this one a relegation six-pointer. Since both teams have found goals hard to come by lately, the Under 2.5 goals FT seems to be the best betting option at the odds of 1.75. As for the match winner, we see the draw as the most likable of the three outcomes.
