Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio da Capital do Movel will host Saturday’s football game between Ferreira and Famalicao. The hosts are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, but that did not help them escape the relegation zone. First-choice goalkeeper Marafona serves a one-game ban, with Slovenia shot-stopper Igor Vekic likely to step up.
Os Azuis e Brancos, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Arouca, but seeing that the relegation-threatened hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Cesar Peixoto’s troops. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team, while Theo Fonseca remains in the recovery room. Fellow midfielder Luis Rodriguez faces race against the clock to be fit for Saturday’s encounter. In the first half of the season Famalicao defeated Pacos Ferreira 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Team (Famalicao):
Founded on August 21, 1931, Famalicao are a Portuguese football club that compete in the Primeira Liga. The colour of their home kit is white, with the team wearing blue shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
Famalicao welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal 22 de Junho Vila Nova de Famalicao, the venue with the capacity of 5,307 people. The stadium was opened in 1952 and ever since has been serving as the team’s home ground. Famalicao are owned by Quantum Pacific Group, the company which has a 32% share of famous La Liga side Atletico Madrid as well.
The Azuis e Brancos secured promotion to Primeira Liga for the first time in the 1946/1947 season and they returned to the Portuguese elite division in 2019. Famalicao recorded a 2-0 win over Santa Clara on their return to the Portuguese top flight, with Toni Martinez and Anderson finding the net for the visitors.
