Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao will be aiming to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Maritimo when they take on Ferreira at Estadio Municipal de Famalicao on Sunday evening. Ivo Vieira’s troops produced their best performance of the season just before the international break, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure the Primeira Liga survival. A man to watch in the home team will be Anderson, who scored a brace in the triumph over Maritimo.
Bruno Jordao remains sidelined with injury for the hosts. Ferreira, on the other hand, continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Os Castores are on a three-game losing run on the road, and seeing that the hosts are brimming with confidence, we predict that the visiting team will return home empty-handed. Famalicao defenders should have Douglas Tanque at bay as he scored his seventh goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Moreirense.
