Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 27 August 2018
Kick-Off at 20:15 UK
Venue: Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).
Moreirense and Belenenses are going to close the third round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga with their Monday evening clash.
The hosts are one of the candidates for going down once more and their primary goal is to secure the place in the top flight for the next season.
After suffering a defeat in the opening round, they managed to celebrate an important away win over Nacional.
Ivo Vieira’s side stayed tow points clear of the relegation last season and they were involved in the survival battle ‘till the latest round in the competition.
Moreirense had great troubles of finding the back of the oppositions’ net as they were the most inefficient side in the league along with Estoril.
Belenenses were more comfortable last season as they managed to secure a safe mid-table position.
They were not too efficient, while their defence did a decent job. However, Henrique Almeida and the lads haven’t been successful when playing away from home as they managed to snatch just two victories at away grounds.
The visitors opened the campaign with a narrow away win over Tondela, but they lost to Porto in a very exciting clash in the latest round.
Belenenses want to secure another safe position at the end of the season and avoid too many problems.

Moreirense vs Belenenses: Prediction
