Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao and Farense go head to head in the relegation six-pointer at Estadio Municipal de Famalicao on Saturday afternoon. Famalicao impressed in the Primeira Liga last term, but they do not seem to be at their sharpest in the new campaign. Jorge Silas’ troops sit in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 21, but a win at Rio Ave helped them regain a much-needed confidence.
Famalicao have recorded no more than one win at home this season, but they are surely capable of beating the fellow-relegation side on home soil. Farense did well to hold Benfica to a goalless draw in their last league match, with the Eagles failing to turn their dominance into goals. Leoes de Faro aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but given Famalicao’s display in the triumph over Rio Ave, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Patrick William):
Born in Sao Leopoldo, Brazil, on June 3, 1997, Patrick William is a defender who plays for Famalicao in Primeira Liga. William began his senior career at Tupi, and he play for the likes of Ceara and Vila Nova as well before signing a five-year contract with Famalicao in 2019.
The Brazilian footballer made his debut in the Portuguese elite division on August 8, 2019, in a 2-0 win over Santa Clara. He scored his first goal for the Azuis e Brancos in a 1-0 win over Rio Ave on August 16, 2019, finding the net in the 66th minute of the match.
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 (Farense):
Established on April 1, 1910, S.C. Farense is a Portuguese club that plays in Primeira Liga. Farense returned to Primeira liga in 2020, with the team securing promotion to the Portuguese elite division following an 18-year absence.
The Leoes de Faro (Lions of Faro) play home games at Estadio da Sao Luis, the stadium with the capacity of 12,000 people. Fellow Algavre clubs Olhanense and Portimonense are regarded as Farense’s biggest rivals. Speaking of the club’s colours, Farense footballers wear black and white shirts when playing at home, while their away kit is mainly green.
In the 2995/96 season Farense represented Portugal in the UEFA Cup, with the team suffering a loss to Olympique Lyon in the first round of the competition. The 1994/95 season is considered the club’s most successful campaign in the Portuguese top flight as they finished the process in 5th position in the standings.
