Relegation bound Portimonense and Farense lock horns in Monday’s Portuguese Primeira Liga fixture.
The team from Portimao are rock bottom in the league table with a humble 8 points from 11 games, while the visitors are 15th, but they have only 9 points in their bag.
Portimonense, who are coming on the back of a narrow 1-2 defeat to Benfica have lost 7 games so far, while managing 2 wins and 2 draws in the process.
At home, they improved a tad bit, but nothing substantial, with four points picked from the latest two via a draw and win.
The newly promoted Farense have similar stats like their hosts, 2 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses from 11. They have also improved lately as those wins came inside the last 5 games.
However, the team remained without a win in travels with the only positive being a draw against Belenenses SAD in October and they lost 4 of the total 5.
Portimonense vs Farense Head-to-head
This will be the first meeting between the sides in Primeira Liga.
However, they had played a few times against each other in the second division and there is little to separate with both teams winning 3 times out of 8 with the remaining 2 ending in stalemates.
They last met in the 2015/16 season, Portimonense won both games, 1-0 at home and 2-1 in the away leg.
Portimonense vs Farense Prediction
Both teams have struggled for goals and netted a combined 19 from 22 games so far and therefore under 2.5 goals seem to be the best bet of this Primeira Liga fixture.
Considering the woes on Farense in away trips, we can back the hosts on a draw no bet, considering Portimonense improved a bit in recent weeks.
