Farense looking to maintain the thee-game unbeaten run in search for more salvation points on Thursday evening when Guimaraes come to visit Faro in the last game of mid-week’s Primeira Liga schedule.
Farense caught a massive glimmer of hope by clinching five out of possible nine points from the last three Primeira Liga rounds. A three-game undefeated streak has helped them close the gap between them and the playoffs spot down to just two points.
The hosts seem to have found a way to keep things tight defensively of late as Farense shipped no more than one goal in the last three rounds. They have not been the most prolific attacking side either, though, netting just one goal in the last two outings along the way.
Farense should have a nice opportunity to keep their fine spell of defensive form going here as their rivals found goals pretty hard to come by of late.
Vitoria Guimaraes suffered six consecutive games on the road. They have not scored a single goal in any of the last five away outings in the process.
The latest of Guimaraes’ away failures came against the rock-bottomed Nacional (1-0). It was Nacional’s first win after ten consecutive defeats in the competition.
Farense vs Guimaraes Head-to-head
- Farense are in a huge need for points, but they will be playing against the tradition here.
- Guimaraes have been much more successful in this match-up, winning 11, drawing 2, and losing just 4 of 17 clashes against Farense.
- However, each of Farense’s four victories came at Estadio de Sao Luis where they even have a positive record against Guimaraes (four wins and three losses).
- The teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw when they came across each other in the first half of the season.
Farense vs Guimaraes Prediction
Motivation will play a big factor here. The match has a much greater significance for the hosts who are desperate for salvation points. They have been in a better form lately and we see the value in backing them to clinch the spoils at the 2.10 odds.
This should not be an action-packed game full of goal scoring chances at both ends. Both sides fancied a defensive-minded approach in the last several weeks and the Under 2.5 goals FT represents a genuine banker bet at the odds of 1.65.
