Portimonense vs Moreirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 15 February 2020
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão (Portimão).
This looks like an easy win for the visitors on paper. Considering their h2h stats and the current form of the hosts we may see a one-sided affair on Friday.
The home side is most definitely heading towards relegation; after losing half of their opening 20 matches. They are on a losing streak of 4 games of which the latest came against Sporting on the road.
Things are not going well at home too after a loss against the bottom side Tondela. This is not a surprise considering a fragile backline that conceded twice the goals the team scored.
The away side under Ricardo Soares will have to do better if they hope for a top 10 finish. Even though his team has great attacking potential, defence has not been the same. The Men from Moreira de Cónegos have only one win in their previous 5 league games. The better attacking team are the favourites to head home with 3 points in this fixture.
Portimonense vs Moreirense: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In their last 10 h2h matches, the Green and whites dominate with 7 wins.
- Only win for the home team came back in 2018.
- The visitors won 3 of their last 5 matches at this stadium.
- Portimonense is winless in the last 3 league games in front of their home crowd.
- Visitors came back to winning ways on the road with a win at Gil Vicente that ended a 5 match winless streak.
Portimonense vs Moreirense: Prediction
There is a small chance that the home side will surprise us. They have not won any of the last 4 competitive matches at home.
Also, the h2h stats against this opposition do not favour the team based in Portimão. So Ricardo’s side will most likely emerge victors.
Whenever these two met at this ground in the recent past both sides found the back of the net. Also, the visitors failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous 9 matches on the road.
With both of them leaking goals at the back, we can expect the same to happen on Friday.
