    Belenenses to finish the season with a win over Madeira

    On Thursday evening, Belenenses host Nacional Madeira in the last game of the season in the Portuguese Primeira for both teams.

    In truth, neither have much to play for in this clash. Belenenses are currently tenth-place in the table but could move up a few places in the league by the end of this clash.

    Meanwhile, Nacional Madeira have already suffered relegation to the second tier. The Islanders will want to finish their campaign on a positive note, though.

    Belenenses head into this clash on the back of a terrible run in the Portuguese top-flight, as they have failed to win in win league matches, having lost their last four league outings. In fact, the home side has suffered some big defeats of late, including suffering an 8-1 home drubbing by Sporting and last time out losing 5-1 at Vitoria Guimaraes.

    Their poor defensive record has led to there being over 2.5 goals scored in their last five matches in the Primeira Liga.

    Belenenses record on home soil in the Portuguese top-flight is little better than their overall record, as they have won just once in eight home matches in the Primeira Liga. Both teams have scored in their last four league matches on home soil.

    A 4-0 home defeat against title-chasing Porto last time out in the league confirmed that Nacional would be playing their football in the Portuguese second tier next season. The defeat means that the visitors have now failed to win nine league games, suffering seven defeats in the process. The Porto defeat means that Madeira have now conceded at least twice in their last three outings.

    Nacional has a woeful away record in the Primeira Liga, failing to win in ten matches while suffering nine defeats in the process.

    Forebet predicts that Belenenses will end their poor recent run of form by recording a victory in a high scoring clash.
