Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Arouca play host to Ferreira at their Estadio Municipal de Arouca in the Primeira Liga round 25. Arouca aim to build on a 2-0 win over Guimaraes, and they are seen as favourites to beat the relegation strugglers in front of home fans. All Jerome Opoku, Oday Dabbagh, and Vitinho are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The visitors, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Santa Clara, and they managed to get one thanks to Antunes’ goal, but given their poor away record (2-1-8), we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. There are no fresh injury concerns in the visiting team. In their last encounter at the venue Pacos Ferreira defeated Arouca, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three encounters in the Portuguese top flight.
Highlighted Team (Ferreira):
Founded on April 5, 1950, Pacos de Ferreira are a Portuguese football club who play their home games at Estadio da Mata Real. The venue can hold up to 9,077 people and it was opened in October 7, 1973. Os Castores are well known for their yellow shirts and green shorts, with the team wearing white and black kit when playing on the travels.
Pacos de Ferreira have yet to win the Primeira Liga trophy, but they did well to make it to the Taca de Portugal final in the 2008/2009 season. Os Castores faced Porto in the title game, with the Dragons attacker Lisandro Lopez scoring the only game of the match.
Two seasons later Pacos de Ferreira faced Benfica in the Taca da Liga final, with the Eagles lifting the trophy. Wolverhampton forward Diogo Jota is one of notable footballers who started their senior careers at Pacos de Ferreira.
