Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estrela and Portimonense go head to head at Estadio Jose Gomes in the opening match of the Primeira Liga round 21. Os Tricolores are on a three-game losing run in the Portuguese top flight, with the team sitting in the relegation zone and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Friday’s encounter.
O Portimao, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating both Farense and Boavista, while losing to Gil Vicente and Arouca. Portimonense and Estrela seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. In the first half of the season the two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Estadio Municipal de Portimao.
Highlighted Team (Portimonense):
Based in Portimao, Portimonense is a Portuguese football club that play home games at Estadio Municipal in Algarve. The capacity of the stadium that was opened in 1937 is 9,544. Portimonense welcome their rivals in black and white shirts and black shirts, whilst yellow is dominant colour of their away kit.
The black and whites finished the 1984/1985 Primeira Liga campaign in 5th position in the standings and, as a result, booked their place in the UEFA Cup. Portimonense did well to Partizan 1-0 on their debut in the European competition, but they suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to the famous Serbian club in the reverse fixture at Yugoslav National Army Stadium.
Fellow Algavre clubs Farense and Olhanense are considered the club’s main rivals. Jackson Martinez is one of the most notable footballers who played for the club. The Colombian attacker is considered one of the most successful attackers in the history of Porto as he scored 67 goals in 90 appearances for the Dragons in the Primeira Liga.
