Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Moreirense will look to overcome a two-goal deficit in the tie with Chaves when the two teams face each other at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas on Sunday. Moreirense failed to impress in the first leg, but the bookies still see them as favourites to beat Chaves in front of home fans. Experienced attacker Kevin Mirallas, who missed the first leg with a muscle problem, is unlikely to feature in Sunday’s clash.
Chaves, on the other hand, proved their worth in the 2-0 win over Moreirense, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the second leg. Os verdes e brancos have turned their stadium into a real fortress, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. A man to watch in the away team will be Wellington Carvalho, who scored 13 goals in the return leg.
Highlighted Player (Kevin Mirallas):
Kevin Mirallas is a Belgian footballer player born on 5th October 1987, who started showing his potential at a very young age. After coming through the youth ranks at Standard Liege, the forward moved to Lille in 2004 and he impressed playing for les Dogues, scoring 10 goals in 76 league appearances.
The move to Saint Etienne did not work out as planned, but a two-year stint at Olympiakos that followed helped the player get his career back on track. Having scored 34 goals in 52 league outings, Mirallas decided to join Everton and he enjoyed a bright start to his career in England. However, just like the entire team, the highly rated footballer suffered a serious dip in form and he has struggled for playing time over the last couple of years.
Mirallas has made over 50 appearances for the Belgium national team, representing the Red Devils at the 2014 World Cup and Eur0 2016 finals, scoring 9 goals in first 50 caps.
