Moreirense Prediction

Following back-to-back defeats away from home, Moreirense will no doubt be glad to be returning to home turf for Monday night’s clash with Nacional as the hosts look to get back on track and move themselves closer to a possible European spot.

Recent losses away at Vitoria Guimaraes 1-0 and a 2-1 defeat at Sporting CP have resulted in Moreirense losing ground on the top four clubs as they now trail 4th placed Sporting by a significant margin of 10 points.

Hope is not all lost though as Moreirense possess a pretty solid home record of 5-1-2 9/6 which includes winning five of their last six at their home ground with wins against Feirense, Maritimo, Portimonense, Boavista and Desportivo Aves, so they’ll be confident they can pick up another three points against lowly Nacional on Monday night.

In addition, the hosts have kept 4 clean sheets in their 8 home matches to date while midfielder Tavares (5 goals) looks the most likely for Moreirense here.

 

Key-Facts – Moreirense v Nacional

  • Moreirense have won 5 of their last 6 matches at home in the Primeira Liga
  • Nacional have lost their last 3 matches on the trot in the Primeira Liga
  • Nacional have conceded 2 goals or more in 5 of their 8 away matches

 

Nacional Prediction

Nacional occupy a lowly position of 14th place in the Primeira Liga and find themselves just four points above the relegation zone and their current plight certainly hasn’t been helped by three league defeats on the trot in recent weeks.

Recent losses to Porto 3-1 away and back-to-back home defeats to Belenenses and Sporting Braga, 1-0 and 3-0 respectively have meant that the visitors have been unable to lift themselves away from the relegation danger, and they face a tricky trip to Moreirense on Monday night.

After an encouraging run of five matches without defeat on the road, Nacional have suffered back-to-back defeats at Sporting CP and Porto -2 and 3-1 amidst an overall record of 2-3-3 14/19 but their defence have given up goals on a regular basis on their travels this season.

Nacional have kept just one clean sheet from 8 away matches while conceding 2 goals or more in 5 of these 8 away matches, with two of these seeing the visitors concede 5 goals.

Betting Tips Verdict

Moreirense have been pretty steady at home this season and should account for Nacional in this one.
