Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio da Madeira will host Saturday’s football match between Nacional and Ferreira, the two teams who meet in Primeira Liga for the first time since 2017. The start of the new season has been a mixed bag for Nacional, who sit in the 9th position in the standings ahead of the visit of Ferreira. The Black and Whites aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Braga, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Ferreira on Matchday 5.
Os Castores desperately needed a win against Santa Clara, and they managed to get one. Ferreira aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but away win should not be considered as they are not regarded as good travellers. Nacional are eyeing their first win of the season, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course.
