    Moreirense to keep Aves sweating on top-flight status
    1188

    On Friday night, CD Aves host Moreirense, in what could be a vital game for the home side in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

    The home side are currently residing in 12th place in the table, but are still not mathematically safe from relegation. Aves are five points clear of the drop zone, with two games to go, so should be safe, but in football, as we know anything can happen.

    A recent inconsistent run in the Primeira Liga has not helped their chances of securing their safety. Last time out they lost 4-0 at title-challengers Porto, which means they have now won two of their last five league outings.

    Aves have been poor of late on home soil in the Portuguese top-flight, losing four of their last six home games. The fact the home side has scored just five goals in their last six home league matches is a big factor in their recent home record.

    Moreirense are enjoying a solid campaign in the Primeira Liga. The visitors are currently fifth-place in the table.

    However, despite their respectable league position the visitors have a poor recent league record, winning just two of their last nine outings. A 2-1 home defeat by Rio Ave last time out means that they have now lost their last three league matches.

    Moreirense’s recent away form in the Portuguese top-flight has been highly inconsistent. The fact that they have won four, lost four and drawn one of their last nine away games illustrates their mixed form on the road.

    Although Moreirense’s recent away games have not necessarily been that high scoring, both teams have scored in four of their last five away games in the Primeira Liga.

    Forebet predicts that Aves may be sweating on their top-flight for a bit long with the visitors recording a victory in a high-scoring clash.
