Portimonense vs Vitoria de Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 9 April 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
The Conquerors are one of the worst teams in the competition based on recent form. In fact, they are the only team along with the dead-last placed Nacional to have been defeated in the previous four match-days in the Portuguese top flight.
They have been conceding goals in alarming numbers all through this stretch, and on the road, they have been on an even worse run this season.
Meanwhile, Paulo Sergio’s men are trying to put some distance between themselves and the relegation cut-off. They have recently improved their form, and especially at home, they have been a serious threat for incoming guests lately.
By the looks of things, expect Portimonense to have the upper hand this Friday at the Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
Portimonense vs Guimaraes: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Henriques’s men recorded a 1-0 win in the reverse match-up.

- Since 2010, the hosts have a 100% winning record at this stadium, barring a single meeting.
Portimonense vs Guimaraes Prediction
Sergio’s men recorded a 1-5 win on the road the last match-day, against Nacional. Moreover, they have lost at home just twice since the first week of November, and they had kept clean sheets in all but three appearances here during the period.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-fixture losing run, and they had conceded two or more goals in six of their past eight games. They have also won just once all through 2021, and just twice since December of 2020.
Going on, the Conquerors have an inferior h2h record against this rival at this venue over the past decade.
Considering these observations, expect Portimonense to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
