Farense vs Pacos de Ferreira
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 27 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Estadio de Sao Luis, Faro.
Team Farense have returned to the Portuguese top flight after 18 years, but rough battle is ahead of them if they want to keep that status. Squad has collected only eight points from the opening ten matches so far, but things could become drastically better with a potential win on Sunday. They will welcome 6th placed Pacos de Ferreira who are seven points away.
Visitors have been in awful shape lately though, having lost three out of the last four matches across competitions. Odds offered for this clash are looking very similar – 2.60 for home, 2.55 for away victory. Can hosts capitalize on decent run in December and take a surprising win?

Farense vs Pacos de Ferreira Prediction
Farense were hammered to the bottom of the table all until 8th November when the first Primeira Liga victory came at this venue. They defeated Boavista 3-1 despite being the underdogs. Similar thing happened recently against Maritimo, winning the game at home 2-1. Winning goal was scored by Ryan Gauld in the second half. This squad has collected almost all points in Faro so far. Bringing points from away days is still looking as mission impossible.
Most of the recent losses for Ferreira happened in cup competitions against top-tier teams like Sporting Lisbon and Porto FC. They have three victories in the last five Primeira Liga appearances versus Famalicao, Moreirense and Porto, while the only loss came against Benfica. This squad is a very serious candidate for Europa League in our opinion and we will back them to claim all three points against Farense.
