Pacos Ferreira vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction
The Beavers recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Aves. Despite the win, the team might be low in confidence, as the performance had come against the absolute worst team in the competition.
Elsewhere, the Conquerors registered a 2-0 victory at home, over Tondela. It was the third win for the squad from the past four attempts, and took them another step closer to a Europa League ticket.
As far as the result for the upcoming fixture is concerned, the Conquerors take the cake. They have been a major player in the top tier of the league for quite some time, while their opposite number were not even present in the competition in 2018-19. On top of that, the Beavers had lost the reverse fixture, and failed to score a goal as well.
Going on, the Conquerors have been unbeaten against this rival in the prior 3 years, and at this venue, only once have they lost in the preceding 8 years. Moreover, the Beavers had lost four of their prior six overall match-ups, and were winless in seven of the past nine. At home, they had lost two of the last three appearances, and were winless in four of the past five.
Most importantly, the Conquerors have lost just once on the road in their previous nine trips, and they have even recorded a combined scorecard of 0-9 from their last two such games alone. Taking these observations into account, expect a dominating victory for Vitoria de Guimaraes this Sunday.
