Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Sporting CP will be aiming to kick off the new Primeira Liga campaign in style when they take on Pacos de Ferreira at Estadio da Capital do Movel. The Lions were not in action at the weekend as their game against Gil Vicente was postponed, meaning that the lack of match sharpness could prove to be a problem for the capital club. Summer signing Pedro Goncalves is widely expected to make his Sporting CP debut against Pacos de Ferreira.
Os Castores, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Portimonense in the opening match of the season. Ferreira are tough to beat at home, and seeing that they were more than unfortunate not to beat Portimomense at the weekend, share of spoils is on the cards at Estadio da Capital do Movel. The likes of Costa, Silva, and Sualehe are all likely to miss the game with injury for the hosts.
