Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Municipal de Rio Maior will host Saturday’s football game between Casa Pia and Famalicao, the two teams who are level on points in the Primeira Liga table. Casa Pia have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating both Chaves and Moreirense, while losing to Porto and Braga. Beni is on international duty with Angola, while Kiki remains on the sidelines with injuries. Anyhow, Pedro Moreira is unlikely to make changes to the team that rolled over Moreirense 3-1.
Os Azuis e Brancos, on the other hand, failed to win the previous six league matches and given Casa Pia’s excellent display in the triumph over Rui Borges’ men, home win should definitely be considered. In their last meeting at the venue Casa Pia defeated Famalicao 1-0 thanks to Leo Bolgado’s goal. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
Highlighted Team (Famalicao):
Founded on August 21, 1931, Famalicao are a Portuguese football club that compete in the Primeira Liga. The colour of their home kit is white, with the team wearing blue shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
Famalicao welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho Vila Nova de Famalicao, the venue with the capacity of 5,307 people. The stadium was opened in 1952 and ever since has been serving as the team’s home ground. Famalicao are owned by Quantum Pacific Group, the company which has a 32% share of famous La Liga side Atletico Madrid as well.
The Azuis e Brancos secured promotion to Primeira Liga for the first time in the 1946/1947 season and they returned to the Portuguese elite division in 2019. Famalicao recorded a 2-0 win over Santa Clara on their return to the Portuguese top flight, with Toni Martinez and Anderson finding the net for the visitors.
