Reason For Famalicao vs Vitoria Guimaraes Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in each of the 3 previous meetings between these two clubs.
  • Both teams scored in 3 of Famalicao’s last 4 matches.
  • Both teams scored in 2 of Vitoria Guimaraes’ last 3 matches.
  • Famalicao have won 5 times at home this season while Guimaraes have only won 1 of their 9 away games.

Famalicao go in search of a sixth home win of the season

Famalicao lost the 1st leg of their Taca de Portugal tie away at Benfica 3-2 in midweek, while Vitoria Guimaraes were beaten 2-0 in the Primeira Liga on Sunday away at Boavista. Two positions separate these two sides in the league table but Famalicao sit 7pts clear in 5th spot and could move into the top three with a win on Saturday.

These two sides have met three times before, just once competitively, and on each occasion, the matches have ended with both teams scoring. Both teams have also scored in three of Famalicao’s last four matches and two of Vitoria Guimaraes’ last three matches, and we have backed both teams to find the back of the net on Saturday as well.

The hosts head into the match as the form favourites with two wins, two draws, and two defeats from their last six outings, with Vitoria Guimaraes losing four of their last six matches in all competitions. Famalicao have won five of their nine home games in the league this season while Guimaraes have only won once on the road and have suffered three defeats.

Guimaraes simply haven’t won enough games on the road

Famalicao average 1.89 points per home game while Guimaraes average just 0.89 points per away game, with the hosts boasting a 56% win ratio in their own backyard. Famalicao score an average of 2.11 goals per home game and concede 1.33 goals and Guimaraes score an average of 1.00 goals per away game and concede 1.56 goals, so you can see why e have backed a 2-1 home win this weekend.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 67% of Famalicao’s home games in the league this season and Vitoria Guimaraes’ away games produce an average of 2.56 total goals, which backs our prediction for 3-goals being scored on Saturday. Both teams have scored in 67% of Famalicao’s home games and Guimaraes away games, suggesting that it is likely we will see both teams get on the scoreboard this weekend.

The hosts have only kept clean sheets in 22% of their home games and their guests have only failed to score in 33% of their matches on the road, and exactly 3-goals have been scored in 22% of Famailcao’s home games. A majority of Famalicao’s wins this season (5) have been obtained with a 1-goal margin and Guimaraes have lost via a 1-goal margin twice so far this season.

We’re confident that both teams will score in Saturday’s clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Famalicao. The hosts are the form favourites and play their best football at home but neither side have been playing at their very best in recent weeks which is why we are expecting a close game between the pair. However, Guimaraes have struggled for wins of the road this season and we expect Famalicao to just do enough to claim all 3pts this weekend.
