Moreirense vs Vitoria Guimaraes Predictions & Match Preview

Moreirense vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).

The final match-day in the Primeira Liga provides an opportunity for Moreirense to absolve the sins of their recent bad form and close out their season on a positive note. They might finish fifth in the table, but will not be eligible to take part in European competition as they failed to obtain UEFA license.

As such, the chance for that was passed down the order and was acquired by none other than the opponent for this same tie, Guimaraes.

The outcome of this tie might not be that meaningful in the grand scheme of things, but either will look for a victory considering the season ends this Sunday.

Moreirense vs Vitoria Guimaraes Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Nine of the last eleven wins went to the home teams.
  • The teams on the road failed to score in the last two encounters.

  • The last Guimaraes won at this stadium was three years back.

Moreirense vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction

Vitoria lost their last four away ties in a row and is winless in their last six. The team also was winless in eight of their last nine matches on the road. In overall fixtures, they were winless in four of their last five attempts. In the meanwhile, Moreirense won their last game, despite being on the road, and was unbeaten in 11 of their last 15 home ties. Vitoria also failed to score in six of their last nine road trips. It’d be logical to expect them not to score in the first half.

Importantly, nine of the last eleven h2h wins were recorded by the teams at home, whereas the teams on the road even failed to score in the last two clashes. At this venue, the hosts scored two or more goals in five of the last six tries, and have remained unbeaten for the last three years.

Finally, Moreirense finished in the fifth spot, and should have been eligible for a European spot, but lost it due to their inability to procure a UEFA license. As such, the chance went to the sixth-placed Vitoria. Taking this grudge into account, count on the hosts to not lose this tie.
