Vitoria Guimaraes vs Portimonense Prediction & Match Preview

Vitoria de Guimaraes vs Portimonense
Portugal – Liga Portugal
Date: Sunday, 8 August 2021
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Estádio D. Afonso Henriques.

Guimaraes are on a great run at the moment, and they had also missed out on a European spot by the tiniest of margins the last season. Meanwhile, Portimonense avoided relegation by a surplus of one point, and have a poor h2h record as well. Likely, expect the former to have the upper hand.

They had secured a seventh-place finish in 2020-21, and the last European ticket was allotted to the team which finished sixth in the table. The team will be determined to qualify for a continental competition this time around.

In the meantime, Portimonense had posted a total of 35 points on the table, while Rio Ave – who had 34 points, were relegated. On top of that, the former also have an inferior h2h record over the years.

Likely, expect a win for Guimaraes this weekend.
