Pacos Ferreira vs Portimonense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 20 July 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Estádio da Capital do Móvel (Paços de Ferreira)
The hosts are on a two-match winless run at the moment. Even though they are five points clear of the relegation zone, things could change in the upcoming games. Defense is in bits and pieces for the home side who have conceded 48 goals while scoring only 31 in return.
The team from Portimao is also in a spot of bother as they are equal on points with Setubal who are in the red zone. They are coming into this match on the back of the win over Boavista. This ended a two-match losing run, but a poor away form puts them in the back foot.

Pacos Ferreira vs Portimonense Prediction
Both of them have serious issues in defense. This has been the reason they are on the wrong side of the table. The hosts have conceded 21 goals in their 16 home games while scoring only 13 in return. They have conceded in all five of their previous fixtures at this ground.
The visitors are having a poor away season but they have scored in few recent matches. These include the games against Braga and Rio Ave. Both of them scored in all four recent head to head matches here too.
The visitors have an unbeaten run in their previous four trips to this ground. But this season they have lost more than half of the matches on the road. They have only one win in the last ten away games in the league.
On the other end, the hosts have also been losing matches here. With a two-match losing run going on they have little chances to win this one. So I am backing a draw with both teams scoring on Monday.
