Moreirense vs Portimonense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 30 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).
Moreirense was a major player in the top half of the league table last season. If not for the presence of some true titans, the squad would definitely have challenged for the European positions. This campaign, they are struggling to stay true to their earlier-mentioned stature though. They began with a loss and followed it up with a win and a draw.
As such, so far their only win in this edition of the competition has been against a newly-promoted Gil Vicente.
Opponents Portimonense stood clear of the cut-off with just seven points in surplus, and will definitely try baiting fate with such kind of performances in 2019-20.
Learning from their lessons during the last run, the team, disregarding their loss against Sporting, has actually done justice to their said objective as of now.

Moreirense vs Portimonense Prediction
Taking into account the absolute dominance Moreirense has displayed over the course of the last several years in h2h clashes, their home advantage, and finally, their much better league standings last season compared to Portimonese – the upper hand goes to them easily.
But the current form of Portimonense, coupled with the fact that they have scored in 13 of their last 15 road trips, puts up BTTS as a great option to back. Moreover, for all the confidence that the hosts sport, the only victory they could lay claim on this season is against a newly-promoted Gil Vicente.
