Vitoria Guimaraes vs Moreirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 11th January 2019
Kick-off at 21.15 UK/ 22.15 CET
Venue: Estádio D. Afonso Henriques (Guimarães).
Both Guimaraes and Moreirense fell behind in the race for the European spots, as teams like Benfica and Sporting raced ahead. In the final half of the season, the gear needs to be shifted for either team to secure their continental future.
The Conquerors lost a closely-fought match against Belenenses last week. The team was unlucky to not get at least a single point from the tie. After scoring an early goal, the hosts completely shut off all passing lanes for the Os Vimaranenses.
Loum Ndiaye scored the winner for Moreirense in their league tie against Aves last match-day. The game seemed like it would end in a draw but a neat assist from Borges Tavares led to the winner in the 76th minute.

Vitoria Guimaraes vs Moreirense Prediction
Sport Clube Vitoria has a very good record against Moreirense, especially at this venue. Guimaraes has won every single league fixture at home against this rival since 2013. The team will also be eager to make amends as they fell behind in their quest for the top spots. The team will take full advantage of the backing of the home crowd. Expect them to win at least one half of the game for sure.
The match will be fiercely fought and most probably will be end-to-end stuff. Moreirense is on a new-found path and has performed well in the final part of last year. Both teams will go for the win, and in all probability, it will result in an early goal. Back the Over 0.5 First Half Goals option @ 1.44 as it shows great value.
