Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 1 February 2020

Coupling the h2h superiority of Ferreira, and the struggles of Santa Clara at home, the former are deemed to be the favorites. However, due to the weak performances of the Ferreira offense this season and their away handicap, the game should not turn out to be a high-scoring one.

Santa Clara vs Pacos de Ferreira Prediction
Santa Clara narrowly managed to record a 0-1 win on the road over Famalicao the last match-day. After several awful performances in front of the home crowd, it was a desperately needed one for the team.
Meanwhile, Ferreira were defeated 0-2 at home by Benfica. And the loss highlighted the problems of the Ferreira frontline in finding goals.
Still, they are going against Santa Clara, who have lost their last five appearances at home, and have a total of just two wins at this venue the whole season. Also, one of these wins had come against a team that was recently promoted.
Moreover, Ferreira hold a 100% unbeaten record in h2h clashes at this venue this past two decades, and in fact have lost just once overall during this period in such encounters. Consequentially, it’s expected that Pacos de Ferreira will maintain their invincible record against this opponent this weekend too.
Going on though, Ferreira have scored a total of 11 goals this whole league campaign, and on top of that they are on the road. They had scored a total of one goal from their prior four road trips, and as such, the chances for this game to become a high-scoring affair are very low.
