Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Moreirense and Portimonense square off against each other at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas on Sunday evening. Moreirense aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Nacional, with the team moving a little closer to the Europa League berth. Brazil international Derik Lacerda, who suffered an injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Portimonense. Paulo Sergio’s troops, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays at home of late, but they are on a six-game losing run on the road in all competitions.
Portimonense are not regarded as good travellers, and given Moreirense’s display in the victory over Nacional, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. Vasco Seabra’s troops are eyeing their fourth home win of the season. In their last meeting at Parque Joaquim Moreirense defeated Portimonense 1-0, with Iago scoring the only goal of the match.
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 (Portimonense):
Based in Portimao, Portimonense is a Portuguese football club that play home games at Estadio Municipal in Algarve. The capacity of the stadium that was opened in 1937 is 9,544. Portimonense welcome their rivals in black and white shirts and black shirts, whilst yellow is dominant colour of their away kit.
The black and whites finished the 1984/1985 Primeira Liga campaign in 5th position in the standings and, as a result, booked their place in the UEFA Cup. Portimonense did well to Partizan 1-0 on their debut in the European competition, but they suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to the famous Serbian club in the reverse fixture at Yugoslav National Army Stadium.
Fellow Algavre clubs Farense and Olhanense are considered the club’s main rivals. Jackson Martinez is one of the most notable footballers who played for the club. The Colombian attacker is considered one of the most successful attackers in the history of Porto as he scored 67 goals in 90 appearances for the Dragons in the Primeira Liga.
