Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Portimonense will look to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Benfica when they take on Santa Clara on Matchday 16. O Portimao are on a three-game losing run in the Portuguese top flight, but they are certainly capable of matching Os Acoreanos in front of home fans. Since Portimonense’s display in the defeat to Benfica was anything but poor, Paulo Sergio is unlikely to make changes to the starting XI.
Santa Clara, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Gil Vicente and Braga in the last two league matches. Os Acoreanos are not regarded as good travellers, meaning that Paulo Sergio’s men will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Both Matheus Babi and Rildo are pushing for a start, while Bruno Jordao remains on the sidelines.
