Portimonense vs Vitoria
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 23 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Portimao (Portimao).
Vitoria Guimaraes are responsible for the biggest upset of the season. They shocked the reigning champions Porto 2-3 on the road in the third round ti pick up their maiden victory of the campaign almost a month ago. It was truly a huge shock knowing that Porto won 16 and drew 1 of 17 matches at Dragao in the previous term of Primeira Liga.
Os Vimaranenses backed up such result with a 1.0 victory over Tondela to make it six points from four rounds. It was Alhassan Wakaso who notched his inaugural goal of the season to make the difference for Guimaraes who climbed up the eighth place in the league ladder. Can they keep the fine spell of form going and pick up another result on Sunday when they travel to Estadio Municipal de Portimao to take on Portimonense?
Portimonense vs Vitoria: Head-to-head

Interestingly, all of last five head to head outings saw goals at both ends.
Portimonense vs Vitoria: Prediction
The hosts sit at the very foot of the Primeira Liga ladder with just one point from the opening four games of the season. They shipped two goals in each of these games failing to score more than three along the way.
The latest of defeats came away at Estadio do Rio Ave Futebol Clube where Antonio Folha’s men dropped the one-goal cushion to concede the 96th-minute goal and eventually lose 2-1.
Guimaraes scored five goals in two away fixtures against the top two teams from the previous Primeira Liga term, Porto and Benfica. They should have much more space to convert in front of Portimonense’s goal here and we just can’t ignore the massive-value 2.50 odds offered for the visitors to find the back of the net on more than one occasion here.
