Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Farense will be looking to impress on their return to Primeira Liga when they take on Moreirense at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas on Sunday. The newcomers return to the Portuguese elite division following an 18-year absence, and, no doubt, they will fight tooth and nail against Moreirense. Os verdes a brancos, on the other hand, have been struggling in pre-season friendlies, with the team failing to find the net in warm-up games against Santa Clara (0-2) and Vitoria Guimaraes.
Anyhow, Moreirense are a more experienced side than Farense, and we predict that the hosts are going to prove their worth on the field. Summer signing Pedro Amador is widely expected to make his Moreirense debut in Sunday’s showdown. In their last meeting at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas Moreirense defeated Farense 2-1, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
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.
Highlighted Team (Farense):
Established on April 1, 1910, S.C. Farense is a Portuguese club that plays in Primeira Liga. Farense returned to Primeira liga in 2020, with the team securing promotion to the Portuguese elite division following an 18-year absence.
The Leoes de Faro (Lions of Faro) play home games at Estadio da Sao Luis, the stadium with the capacity of 12,000 people. Fellow Algavre clubs Olhanense and Portimonense are regarded as Farense’s biggest rivals. Speaking of the club’s colours, Farense footballers wear black and white shirts when playing at home, while their away kit is mainly green.
In the 2995/96 season Farense represented Portugal in the UEFA Cup, with the team suffering a loss to Olympique Lyon in the first round of the competition. The 1994/95 season is considered the club’s most successful campaign in the Portuguese top flight as they finished the process in 5th position in the standings.
