Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Saturday’s football match at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas pits together Moreirense and Pacos de Ferreira, the two teams who are level on points ahead of Matchday 7. Moreirense aim to bounce back from a 2-0 Rio Ave, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Ferreira. It has to be noted, though, that all Amador, Conte, Kewin, Lacerda, and Mane have been struggling with injuries of late.
Ferreira, on the other hand, produced their best performance of the season at the weekend as they defeated Porto at home ground. The visitors must be high on spirits ahead of the trip to Moreira de Congos, and we are positive that they are going to find the net in Saturday’s game. Since the hosts are eager to get back on course in the Primeira Liga, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.
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 (Ferreira):
Founded on April 5, 1950, Pacos de Ferreira are a Portuguese football club who play their home games at Estadio da Mata Real. The venue can hold up to 9,077 people and it was opened in October 7, 1973. Os Castores are well known for their yellow shirts and green shorts, with the team wearing white and black kit when playing on the travels.
Pacos de Ferreira have yet to win the Primeira Liga trophy, but they did well to make it to the Taca de Portugal final in the 2008/2009 season. Os Castores faced Porto in the title game, with the Dragons attacker Lisandro Lopez scoring the only game of the match.
Two seasons later Pacos de Ferreira faced Benfica in the Taca da Liga final, with the Eagles lifting the trophy. Wolverhampton forward Diogo Jota is one of notable footballers who started their senior careers at Pacos de Ferreira.
