Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Portimonense play host to Famalicao at Estadio Municipal de Portimao in the Primeira Liga round 29. O Portimao are on a four-game losing run in the national championship, and, as a result, their elite division status is in great danger. Defender Lucas Possignolo, who limped off with injury in a 2-0 loss to Belenenses, is unlikely to feature against Famalicao. Willyan is banned for the hosts, while Ricardo Matos remains in the recovery room.
Os Azuis e Brancos, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Jhonder Cadiz is pushing for a start after finding the net in the loss to Boavista, while Pedro Brazao is back from suspension. In the first half of the season Portimonense defeated Famalicao 3-0, but a close encounter is on the cards this time out.
