Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After sharing the spoils with Moreirense at the weekend, Vitoria Guimaraes will be looking to return to winning ways in the Primeira Liga when they welcome SC Farense at their Estadio D. Afonso Henriques on Matchday 14. Joao Henriques’ troops have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the newcomers. Farense, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels.
Leoes de Faro are on a four-game losing run on the road in all competitions, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Guimaraes’ party at Estadio D. Afonso Henriques. In their last meeting at the venue Guimaraes recorded a routine 3-1 win over Farense, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Lica is banned for the visitors.
