Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Municipal de Portimao will host Friday’s football game between Portimonense and Famalicao. Portimonense aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Vitoria Guimaraes, and a win over Famalicao could see them escape the relegation zone. Paulo Sergio’s troops did well to beat Nacional thanks to Fabricio’s late goal in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Famalicao.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the 2020/21 Primeira Liga season, and, as a result, they sit in the middle of the table ahead of the trip to Portimao. Famalicao aim to regain their spot in the top half of the table, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the visiting team. A close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
