Portimonense vs Pacos de Ferreira Prediction
Portimonense shared the spoils with Boavista in their last trip on the road, thereby extending their winless run to four games in all competitions. The hosts have been struggling to get things going this season and have come out on top just twice in their past ten games too.
With no more than thirteen points to their name, the home side are right above rock-bottom side Aves on the ladder.
On the other hand, Pacos de Ferreira are starting to show signs of promise in their respective campaign. The visitors have been tasting nothing but success in their past two clashes in the Primeira Liga and have stumbled just once in their last four across various competitions.
Be that as it may, the 1-0 win over Braga in their last outing, is their only victory on the road so far. They have admitted defeat in five of their last seven trips on the road. Three of which, have been by a two-goal margin or more.
To make matters worse, Portimonense are unbeaten in their past three first division clashes here. Hence, Pacos de Ferreira’s chances of securing the bragging rights are certainly bleak.
Be that as it may, the hosts have settled for just a point thrice at home this season. Given the convincing form that the visitors have been on, as of late, as well, the safest punt would have to be a Draw no Bet.
Furthermore, Pacos de Ferriera have been virtually invisible in the final third away from home. Miserably they have scored just four goals on the road this season, which is the joint least by any side in the top flight.
Taking into account that four of the past seven clashes here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, count on goals to be hard to come by this Saturday.
