Guimarães vs Portimonense – Liga NOS : On the match that will close out this 9th round of the Portuguese league…
The locals of Vitória Guimarães, coached by Pedro Martins, will meet Portimonense, managed by Vítor Oliveira, in Guimarães, at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques.
It will be a match between the 11th and 15th placed teams, respectively, who are separated by just 3 points going into this match.
The hosts have some absences for this match, namely: Hurtado, Douglas, Pedrão, Alexandre Silva and João Vigário, while on the visiting side Ezeh, Henrique, Inácio and Tabata will also miss the match.
The home side goes into this match after a start of the season that can’t certainly be considered to be very positive,
since they only have 10 points after 8 rounds and have one of the worst defences in the league, as well as one of the worst attacks.
They are also a bit behind the other European contenders, so it might be tough for them to fight to qualify for those European competitions.
In any way, it is understandable, because they have suffered some changes from last year and they are also taking part in the Europa League, which is a great challenge for the team, both physically and mentally.
Guimarães vs Portimonense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
As for Portimonense, they go into this match very close to the relegation zone on the league table, with only a 1-point advantage over Moreirense and Estoril.
If the team doesn’t win in Guimarães and Moreirense wins, the team goes into the relegation zone.
Despite having had some good matches since the beginning of the season, they have been unlucky, and they have lacked some prowess in front of their opponents’ goal.
In any way, both teams prioritize (or at least try) quality attacking football and I believe that will be the approach in this match as well, which can make this an exciting match with goals.
