Portimonense vs Aves
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão (Portimão).
Either team is going through desperate times. Portimonense has had a sudden change in form and fortune. The mid-table team, which was having a comfortable cruise until some months back, took a plunge and lost their last four matches in a row. Even their home ground has not come to their rescue. The group is winless in their last four appearances in front of the home crowd.
Aves fans will be the most prone to panic attacks in all of Portugal, and can really benefit from learning some breathing exercises. They are on the verge of the relegation zone, and each match-day is a see-saw of emotions for them. As the season has entered its final phase, the fans better get some yoga lessons too.

Portimonense vs Aves Prediction
Both sets of players are desperate for the win. They have faced enough losses already, and would gladly skip playing rather than take one more defeat.
At any cost, mistakes will be avoided by the teams. They will play it safe and specifically look for opportunities that are comparatively risk-free. We can expect the tactics to be clearly deployed around their defenses. There’s no chance that this would be a high-scoring tie considering the special circumstances these teams have put themselves in.
Even if one team manages to score, bet your top dollar that, all strategies will be thrown out of the game for parking the bus, and the objective would be nothing but to wind down the clock.
This Saturday, rely on these teams to produce a low goal-scoring fixture.
