Moreirense vs Ferreira
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Wednesday, 15 July 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos)
The Green and Whites are loving life in the league right now. The only defeat in their 10 previous fixtures came against Rio Ave. The highlight during that period was the goalless draw with Sporting at home. So they have shown once again that they are a hard nut to crack at home soil.
Ferreira had to play tough opponents like Porto and Braga in recent weeks. As expected they lost both those matches. Apart from those defeats they have won all three remaining games in the last five match days. But since they have lost more than half of league matches they played until now, the host will have the advantage in this upcoming tie.
Moreirense vs Pacos de Ferreira: Head-to-head (h2h)

- The reverse fixture was won by Ferreira with a final score of 1-0.
- The hosts are unbeaten in four previous clashes with this opposition at this ground.
- All four of those matches had fewer than 2.5 goals in total.
- The home team is winless in three recent home fixtures.
Moreirense vs Pacos de Ferreira: Prediction
The Beavers have a commendable away form this season. From their 15 matches on the road, they have 5 wins and 8 defeats. Currently, they are on a 2 match winning run with both those wins against teams’ way below in the table. But they pulled off a stunning win over Rio Ave in one of the recent away fixtures. The hosts could be happy with the draw with Sporting at home. Also with a successful streak in head to head matches, I am backing the hosts to win this one.
Even though the hosts have kept a clean sheet against Sporting in their latest fixture, the visiting attack is to be feared. They went all guns blazing in the match against Rio Aves and took an early 2-0 lead in the first half. They could repeat the same considering their performance in the reverse leg. So I think we can see both nets bulging on Wednesday.
