Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio de Sao Luis will host Thursday’s football game between Farense and Santa Clara. Farense aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Porto and Tondela, and they will surely give 100% to escape the rock-bottom position in the standings. Boss Sergio Vieira should have a full squad to choose from against Santa Clara. Daniel Ramos’ men, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Belenenses.
Santa Clara have been producing fine displays of late, and they should take advantage of Farense’s current form. Crysan, who scored from the penalty spot in the 2-0 win over O Belem, is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs in the Primeira Liga since 2002 when Santa Clara recorded a 2-0 win over Farense at Estadio de Sao Miguel.
