Santa Clara vs Famalicao
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 10 August 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Estádio de São Miguel (Ponta Delgada).
Both the teams would be aiming to head start the tournament with a win to stay on the top of the table. The hosts would be the far better-favored side due to their home ground advantage over Famalicao in the game.
Even with a good form and winning run in the Segunda Liga, they are merely held back after their 0-2 loss against Covilha in the Portugal League Cup. The home team, on the other hand, have a winning account from their last bout against Belenenses in the same League.
Santa Clara has not lost in their last ten games at home. It has given them much-defined confidence over the rival side at their home turf. They also have a streak of stopping the shots at their penalty box at a good rate. It has made it hard for the opposition’s strikers to find their scoring legs at the other half.

Santa Clara vs Famalicao Prediction
With the stats reading positive at the home teams dugout, they would surely deliver at the end of the ninety minutes in the game. They will positively look to attack the defense of the visitors early into the game, knowing the field well from both ends.
We can expect one or two goals from the home side reaching the back of the net at the other end of the field. As always, the guests will struggle in vain to see through the home team’s last man standing, which will end the bout in a clean sheet for the hosts.
