Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
After holding reigning champions Sporting to a draw, Famalicao will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they take on Moreirense at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas on Sunday afternoon. Famalicao impressed on their debut season in Primeira Division, but the team’s main goal for the 2021/22 campaign is to secure the top flight survival. Both Heriberto Tavares and Pedro Marques have been struggling with injuries of late.
Moreirense, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run at the start of the season. Since both sides are likely to go for a win in Sunday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Andre Luis is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring the equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Belenenses before the international break.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Nuno ):
After spending his youth career at the likes of Buarcos, Naval, Benfica, and Academica, Pedro Nuno continued playing for the Briosa at the senior level. Pedro Nuno scored five goals in 25 appearances for Academica in the league, which persuaded Benfica chiefs to sign him on November 28, 2016.
The Portuguese midfielder, though, was immediately sent on loan to Tondela, where he scored four goals in 45 appearances for the club. In 2018 Pedro Nuno moved to Moreirense, and he has been playing for Os verdes e brancos ever since. He made his Primeira Liga debut with Moreirense on August 11, 2019, in a 3-1 away loss to Sporting Braga.
Pedro Nuno was born in Buarcos, Portugal, on January 13, 1995, and he wears the number 27 jersey at Moreirense. His primary position is left winger, but he is used as both second striker and attacking midfielder. Pedro Nuno has yet to make his debut with the Portugal senior team.
