Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estoril play host to Pacos Ferreira at their Estadio Antonio Coimbra da Mota in the Primeira Liga round 21. Estoril have been struggling to find their best form of late, with the team losing four of their last five league fixtures, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Since there are no fresh selection worries in Nelson Verissimo’s team, home win should be considered.
Os Castores, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only nine points in their pocket, and given their poor away record, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s encounter. As for the visiting side, defender Maracas is banned for the match following his sending off in the 1-0 defeat to Portimonense. You should know that Estoril outplayed Pacos Ferreira 3-0 when the two teams met at Estadio da Capital do Movel earlier in the process.
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.
