Pacos Ferreira vs Moreirense Prediction
Pacos Ferreira were at the losing end of a hefty 4-1 scorecard against Braga in the Portugal League Cup, thereby bringing a two-match winning streak in all competitions to a halt. Be that as it may, the hosts managed to pull a shocking 1-0 win over the same foe in their most recent clash in the Primeira Liga, that too on the road.
The home team have now tasted success in half of their past four matchups in the domestic league. Currently, they are just one point away from propelling themselves out of the relegation zone as well.
Meanwhile, Moreirense have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past three games. Their previous encounter at home saw them take down Belenenses with a 2-1 scoreline. While their last outing ended in a 1-0 loss at the hands of Sporting.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have hardly been a force to reckon with on the road this term. Miserably, they are one among the only two sides that are left to come out on top away from home in the cluster.
Furthermore, Moreirense have admitted defeat in three of their past five outings, garnering just two measly points from a possible fifteen. To make matters worse, the visitors have secured the bragging rights just once against this foe, on the road, in the past decade.
Given that the hosts have now salvaged a point at the least in three of their previous five games here, count on Pacos Ferreira to emerge victoriously in this one.
Additionally, the visiting contingent have not looked sharp in the final third. They have scored just six goals from their last seven outings in the league, and have conceded twice that number in the process as well.
Moreover, three of the last four h2h meetings here have been low scoring affairs. As such, count on Pacos Ferreira to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
