Portimonense vs Famalicao
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Thursday, 17 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
Paulo Sergio’s men are one of the worst in the competition, and are placed second to last in the table. They have a total of just two wins to their name all through this campaign, and have lost four of their former five league fixtures.
Meanwhile, Vila Nova are desperately trying to get into one of the European spots. They are currently going through a struggling stretch, but this match-up against Sergio’s men could be a disguise.
Considering the quality of Joan Pedro Sousa’s men, and their determination to get back to their earlier form, expect Famalicao to dominate proceedings this Thursday at the Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
Portimonense vs Famalicao: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Sergio’s men are on a four-game winning run against this opponent.
- They have scored two or more goals in three of the preceding four clashes.
- They are also unbeaten against this rival since 2015, and have not failed to score against them in five years.
- However, at this venue, not once have the hosts kept a clean sheet this decade.
Portimonense vs Famalicao: Prediction
Vila Nova were unbeaten in 20 of their previous 26 overall games, and they have lost just thrice on the road since February.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost seven of their last nine fixtures, and remained winless in 11 of their preceding 13 match-ups. And they have won just once at home this season.
On top of that, Sousa’s men have also scored the most number of goals in the contest, barring the top-four teams.
Likely, expect Portimonense to deliver the better performance this Thursday.
Be that as it may, note that Sergio’s men have a terrific h2h record in recent years, and their opposite number have conceded the most number of goals in the league as well.
For the reasons, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch at the Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
