Moreirense vs Belenenses Prediction
Moreirense were on the road the last match-day, and had taken on tough customers, Sporting. Expectedly, the former lost. But the narrow scoreline of 1-0 could surely be considered as a moral victory.
Similarly, Belenenses had locked horns with Porto the same game week. The top-tier Porto were on the road, and had conceded the first goal. However, the 32nd-minute penalty awarded for the guests tallied things up at 1-1, and this scoreline was held till the final whistle.
Considering the form of Moreirense at home, and that of Belenenses on the road, the favorite for this game is surely the first one. Moreirense have lost just twice at home in their prior ten match-days, and one of these had come against Benfica. They also have found the back of the net in every single game at home this season.
On the other hand, Belenenses lost three of their previous four matches on the road, and had a total of four away wins from their preceding sixteen games away from home.
In addition, Moreirense have been the dominant team in h2h clashes recently, and at this venue, they have lost just twice in the prior ten years.
Considering these observations, expect the home team, Moreirense to come out on top with the three points this Sunday.
Going on though, if overall recent form is taken into account, Belenenses hold the upper hand. They were unbeaten in five of their last eight match-ups, while their counterparts have mere two wins from their previous eleven fixtures.
Moreover, Moreirense have not kept a clean sheet in their last eleven overall games on the trot, and in their former five at home.
As such, anticipate this competitive fixture to have goals from both teams.
