Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Portimonense and Farense go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Portimao in the Primeira Liga round 12. Both sides aim to kick off 2021 in style, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Monday’s clash. Portimonense aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Benfica, with the team eyeing their only second home win of the season.
Even though Paulo Sergio’s troops are not regarded as good travellers, we are positive that they will grab something from the first game of the year as their display in the defeat to Benfica was anything but poor. Farense, on the other hand, have been struggling on the travels of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous three away games. Since defender Eduardo Mancha suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Ferreira, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team.
