Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Vitoria Guimaraes will look to extend their winning run in all competitions to four games when they face Famalicao in the Primeira Liga round 11. Guimaraes look unstoppable at the moment, and it is no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping. Keep in mind that head coach Joao Aroso will watch the game from the stands following his sending off in a 3-2 win over Boavista.
The visitors, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a heavy 4-1 defeat to Arouca, with the team beating Pacos Ferreira in front of home fans 2-1 at the weekend. Miguel Ribeiro’s troops, though, struggle on the travels, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on the home side. Spanish defender Martin Aguirregabiria remains on the sidelines with a long-term injury.
