    Moreirense and Pacos de Ferreira clash

    On Tuesday night, Moreirense and Pacos de Ferreira clash in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, as the visitors look to continue their recent positive record.

    Moreirense have experienced a poor campaign so far in the Portuguese top-flight, as they currently sit 13th place in the Portuguese top-flight, having picked up just eight points from their last seven games.

    Their underwhelming beginning to the campaign means that the home team are just a point above both the relegation play-off spot and the last relegation spot.

    A two-game losing run in the Primeira Liga has been the main cause of their precarious position in the Portuguese top-flight table. Defeats at Rio Ave and Sporting Lisbon saw Moreirense concede twice in each encounter which took their goal difference to minus -2 for the season.

    Despite the recent home defeats in the Primeira Liga, the home side has been difficult to defeat on home soil in the Portuguese top-flight of late, as they have lost just one of their previous seven home matches on home soil in the league.

    Pacos de Ferreira are just three points ahead of Moreirense in the Portuguese table, yet the visitors are sixth-place in the fledgeling Primera Liga table. The congested nature of the table is responsible for what appears to be a lofty position in the table.

    However, Pepa’s team also head into this clash in decent form too. The visitors are unbeaten in their last five matches in all competitions, having recorded four victories in the process.

    That unbeaten run includes four games unbeaten in the Primeira Liga, three of which have finished in victories.

    A 2-0 win over Famalicao last time out means that the visitors have scored at least two goals in three of their last four matches in the Portuguese top-flight.

    There is very little between these two teams. Forebet predicts that this clash will produce a low-scoring draw, which would do little to move the home side away from the relegation zone.
