This will add up to three games on the bounce, all 0-2 defeats if we add the cup defeat at home to Rio Ave.

Portimonense’s performances so far has been marred by individual errors at the back line as well as lack of creativity upfront.

This hosts must expect another stern test when the newly promoted Santa Clara come to town this weekend, a team that bagged an excellent point with a 3-3 draw against Braga last week.

Santa Clara were 3-0 down by half time in front of their home fans against Braga, but a brilliant fight back saw them get back to level terms.

In the first round, they were unlucky to have lost at Maritimo, the lone goal of the match falling in the dying seconds of added extra time.

Portimonense vs Santa Clara Prediction

Portimonense seems like a team with little ideas in the final third. To rub salt on the wound is a sloppy defense that looked shaky in back-to-back defeats.

Santa Clara showed that they can play some good football in the 3-3 draw against Braga last week. The come back from three goals down to draw level against one of the strongest sides in the league will massively improve their morale and confidence.

Thus, the away win look like the most probable outcome in this Primeira Liga fixture.
