Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Chaves and Estrela square off against each other at Estadio Municipal de Chaves in what is expected to be a close Primeira Liga game. Os Valentes aim to put an end to their five-game losing run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Estrela. Both Sanca and Nwakali are pushing for a start as duo Cruz – Vitoria failed to impress in a heavy 4-1 loss to Boavista on Monday, while Ruben Lameiras continues to miss out with a knee injury.
The newcomers, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to title-chasing Porto. Considering that Estrela have been involved in some low-scoring games of late, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. Mario Balburdia remains on the sidelines, but he should be the only absentee in the visiting team. Fit-again defender Mansur should be recalled to the starting line-up.
