Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao and Moreirense go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Famalicao in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Thursday’s program. Famalicao aim to bounce back from back-to-back defeats to Vitoria Guimaraes and Nacional, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Moreirense. Jorge Silas’ troops, though, are not regarded as good hosts, with the team eyeing their only second home win of the season.
Vasco Seabra’s men, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Braga. Moreirense have been struggling at the back of late, meaning that Famalicao will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Neto is sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Amador, Lacerda, and Pedro are out of contention for the visitors. Guinea-Bissau international Sori Mane will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
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.

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 (Moreirense):
Moreirense are a Portuguese football club based in Moreira de Conegos. Founded on November 1, 1938, Os verdes e brancos welcome their rivals at Parque Moreira de Conegos Guimaraes, the venue which can hold up to 9,000 spectators.
Moreirense wear green and white shirts and white shorts when playing at home, whilst black and red are the dominant colours of their away kit. In the 2016/2017 season Os verdes e brancos did well to win the Taca da Liga trophy, with the team beating Braga 1-0 in the title game.
Caue scored the winner for Moreirense on the stroke of half time. Moreirense impressed in the 2018/2019 Primeira Liga season, finishing the process in sixth position in the standings. The club missed out on a place in the Europa League on goal difference to Vitoria de Guimaraes. Penafiel are considered one of the club’s main rivals.
