Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Municipal de Famalicao will host Sunday’s football game between Famalicao and Vitoria Guimaraes. Famalicao aim to build on a 2-1 win over Santa Clara which helped them regain a much-needed confidence, and we are positive that the hosts will adopt an attack-minded approach against Guimaraes. A man to watch in the home team will be talented Brazil attacker Jhonata Robert, who has found his goalscoring touch of late.
Vitoria Guimaraes, on the other hand, have been playing some high-scoring games of late, with over 3.5 goals being netted in each of their previous three league fixtures. Since Joao Henriques’ charges are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. It has to be noted that nine goals in total have been netted in the previous two meetings between the two teams in the Primeira Liga.
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 (Guimaraes):
Vitoria Guimaraes have always been in the shadow of famous Portuguese sides Porto, Benfica and Sporting, but over the years they have established themselves as a top-table side in the Primeira Liga. Os Vimaranenses did well to win Taca de Portugal in the 2012/2013 season, wi the team beating Benfica in the final of the domestic cup.
Vitoria Guimaraes finished the 2016/2017 Primeira Liga campaign in fourth place in the standings and, as a result, they booked their place in the Europa League qualifiers. The Portuguese side will face the likes of Salzburg, Konyaspor and Olympic Marseille in Group I and they are seen as underdogs in their group. Vitoria Guimaraes welcome their rivals at Estadio D. Alfonso Henriques and the venue can hold up to 30.000 spectators.
Os Vimaranenses play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, whilst they wear black when playing on the road. Their neighbours Braga are considered Guimaraes’ fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in the derby of Minho Province.
