Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao will be aiming to make amends for an embarrassing 7-0 loss to Vitoria Guimaraes when they host Desportivo Aves at their Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho. The newcomers impressed in the first half of the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Matchday 21. Since influential attacker Anderson is sidelined through suspension, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
Desportivo Aves, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 4-0 loss to Rio Ave, and we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football match. Considering that Famalicao are on a five-match winless run in the national championship, we are tempted to put our money on draw. It has to be noted that the visitors will be without suspended centre-back Bruno Morais in Sunday’s match.

Highlighted Team (Aves):
Aves are a professional Portuguese club that compete in Primeira Liga. Founded on November 12, 1930, Aves play their home games at Estadio do Clube Desportivo das Aves, the venue with the capacity of 8,560 spectators.
Despite beating Sporting CP in the 2017/2018 Taca de Portugal final, Aves did not represent Portugal in the Europa League group stages as they failed to obtain a license for European competitions. The red and whites have been competing in Primeira Liga since 2000 when they made their debut in the Portuguese elite division with a 1-0 loss to Belenenses at home ground.
Aves recorded their biggest win in the Portuguese top flight in February, 2018, with the team crushing Belenenses 5-2 at Estadio do Restelo. Aves suffered their biggest defeat in the Primeira Liga to the same club on January 21, 2001, with the team losing 5-0 to O Belem. Aves are well known for their red jerseys with white stripes.
