Moreirense vs Aves
Portugal – Primeira Liga.
Date: Monday, 7th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).
The Primeira Liga has not given any team clear advantage for title glory. Moreirense will face Aves in round 16 of the league on Tuesday.
The Green and Whites are 6th at present with 8 wins and 6 defeats. Halfway through the league they still have chances to finish at top-5 spot. Defense have let them down as they have given away more than what they scored.
Manager Ivo Vieira will be a happy man after 2 consecutive wins in the league. His side has 3 wins and 2 defeats in the last 5 matches across all venues. All 4 of their recent matches had a final score of over 2.5 goals in total.
The team from Minho has won all but one of their previous 5 home games in the league. The only defeats in that period came against Santa Clara in round 14 and that match ended 0-1.
Defense is the problem for Aves also. They have given away 29 goals while scoring 17 only from their 15 matches so far. But they have not won any of their last 3 matches across all competitions. Fewer than 2.5 goals came in 3 of the last 5 matches.
The team coached by Jose Mota is on a 2 match losing streak in away games. Both these games saw them concede at least 4 goals. All their previous 5 away games had over 2.5 goals in total.
This game promises to be a close encounter as both teams are busy conceding goals. A win for Aves will not make a significant change in the standings.
