Pacos Ferreira vs Aves
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 20 September 2019
Kick off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estádio da Capital do Móvel (Paços de Ferreira).
Pacos Ferreira have not been able to live up to their expectations since returning to the top flight and are the only team left in the table to register a win. Their most recent clash on the road saw them lose by a 4-2 scoreline against the table-toppers Famalicao, while they were deprived of all three points in their previous home game by Maritimo, with Pinho scoring the only goal of the game.
Aves have not exactly hit the ground running in their respective campaign either, and are right above Pacos Ferreira in the ladder. The visitors have been at the losing end in their last three games in a row, prior to which they managed to secure a 3-1 victory over Maritimo
Given that Aves are yet to taste success in their clashes on the road, Pacos Ferreira will be hopeful of ending their drought with a win this week.

Pacos Ferreira vs Aves Prediction
The hosts can slump no further down the table as they have hit rock bottom. However, it needs saying that Pepa’s men have shown a lot more conviction in the comforts of home soil. While it is true that they are yet to come out on top here, it is worth mentioning that they lost only by a narrow one-goal margin in their last two clashes here.
Their opponents, on the other hand, have been on the losing end of a 5-1 scoreline in their previous two outings in a row. Furthermore, Aves have not picked up a win against the hosts in any of their last three visits to this stadium in a running either.
With Aves far from being a threat in any of their recent trips on the road, you can certainly count on Pacos Ferreira to bank on home advantage and to edge it past their counterparts on Friday.
Additionally, despite the dearth of points in their outings, Aves have been consistent in finding the back of the net. Taking into account that three of their previous four visits here have also seen goals down each end, expect both teams to get their names on the scoresheet by the end of the ninety minutes.
