Football – Portugal – Primeira Liga Betting Tips

Next up is a bottom half clash in the Portuguese top flight between hosts, Portimonense, and visitors, Belenenses at the Estádio do Portimonense SC, as the home side look to bounce back from recent back-to-back defeats.

Defeats at home to 8th placed Chaves and away at 2nd placed Sporting CP have left the hosts in 12th place in the Primeira Liga, but they’re just still one point behind Belenenses ahead of tonight’s clash, and they also possess a fairly solid looking home record despite defeat last time out on home turf.

Portimonense’s home record stands at  4-1-2  14/9 and prior to the Chaves defeat, the home side had recorded three wins from four matches with victories gained over Feirense, Vitoria Setubal and Tondela. Forwards Nakajima (6 goals) and Fabricio (5 goals) are the ones to watch for the hosts.

Visitors Belenenses sit just one league place above their opponents tonight, Portimonense, having had to endure a bad run of form in recent weeks; they’re without a win from their last five matches overall, and indeed, have lost four of these last five with defeats to Porto, Chaves, Sporting CP and Sporting Braga, with their only respite coming in a 1-1 draw at home with third from bottom club, Pacos de Ferreira.

The story gets worse when turning to Belenenses’s away form as they’ve picked up just one win on the road all season, which was a 4-1 win at 13th placed Feirense, but an overall away record of  1-0-7  5/18 underlines the problems they’ve had on their travels so far this season.

The visitors have lost their last four on the road on the trot, and have failed to score in each of these losses. In addition, they’ve failed to keep a single clean sheet too.
