Our prediction for this Taca de Portugal match:
Mafra and Moreirense go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Mafra in the Taca de Portugal last 16. Mafra sit in 7th place in the Liga Portugal 2 standings, with the team setting up a meeting with Moreirense by beating Vilafranquense 1-0. The Liga Portugal 2 side failed to win the previous five home games in the league, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered. Lito Vidigal’s troops, on the other hand, sit in the Primeira Liga relegation zone.
Moreirense are desperate to secure yet another top flight survival, but they have big ambitions for the 2021/2022 Taca de Portugal campaign as well. Considering that Mafra have been struggling in front of home fans of late, we are tempted to put our money on draw. When the two teams met in the Portuguese Cup two years ago Mafra eliminated Moreirense.
