Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Primeira Liga when they host Vitoria Setubal at their Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho on Sunday evening. The newcomers made a promising start to the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Vitoria Setubal. Famalicao have been struggling at the back in recent weeks, with the team conceding eight goals in total in the last three league fixtures.
The team’s performance in a 4-0 loss at Benfica was anything but good, but they are widely expected to grab something from Saturday’s clash against Setubal. Considering that the visitors proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Pacos de Ferreira and Desportivo Aves, we are tempted to put our money on draw. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the Portuguese elite division.
