Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Ferreira will be looking to build on a thrilling 3-2 win over Porto when they take on Famalicao on Friday evening. Os Castores have been in a fine form of late, and they are eager to extend their unbeaten run in the Primeira Liga to four games. Ferreira are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground, and it is no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping.
Famalicao, on the other hand, head into the match following a routine 3-0 win over Oriental in the Taca de Portugal. Joao Pedro Sousa’s troops are eyeing their third consecutive win in all competitions, but beating the in-form hosts at Estadio da Capital do Movel is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw.
