Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao will be looking to put an end to their four-game losing run in the Primeira Liga when they take on Belenenses on Friday evening. Famalicao impressed in the 2019/20 season, but, as things stand now, they will be fighting hard to survive in the Portuguese top flight in the remainder of the current campaign. Neto is sidelined with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The good news for the hosts is that Jhonata Robert returns from suspension. O Belem, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team holding both Porto and Guimaraes to a draw. Since Famalicao are low on confidence ahead of Friday’s football match, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. Varela is out of contention with injury, while Kau will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

Patrick William’s preferred foot is right, and his primary position is a centre-back. The player who wears the number 97 shirt at Famalicao, has a contract with the club until June 2024. The Famalicao defender has yet to make his debut with the Brazil national team.
Highlighted Team (Belenenses):
Founded on September 23, 1919, Belenenses are a Portuguese club that host their rivals at Estado do Restelo. The stadium can hold up to 19,856 spectators and it was built in 1956. O Belem play home games in blue shirts and white shorts and white is the dominant colour of their away kit.
By beating the likes of IFK Goteborg and Rheindorf Altach Belenenses booked their place in the Europa League group stages in the 2015/2016 season. Despite defeating Swiss side Basel in their group, the Portuguese club eventually finished the process in the last position in the standings.
The Estado do Restelo outfit did well to win the Primeira Liga trophy in the 1945/1946 season, with the team finishing the season only one point clear of second-placed Benfica. Speaking of the Portuguese Cup, Belenenses clinched their third Taca de Portugal trophy in the 1988/1989 season. Vitor Godinho is the player with most appearances for the club (272).
