Moreirense welcome the visitors Aves in the Portuguese Primeira Liga – Round 16. The match will be held on Tuesday, January 8th, at the Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).
Featuring a bad start to the campaign (just 4 points attained in 5 encounters), Moreirense have gradually kicked into gear, and presently they sit 6th in the standings. Compare, for example, the 4th Benfica running only 7 points ahead. In 11 official clashes, Moreirense gained 8 wins, losing in outings against Porto and Braga. The team’s performance was also great in the last 3 league fixtures wherein they got the maximum possible number of points. Finally, on their turf, the hosts conceded in only 1 match of 6. Given that yet in the last season they competed in the LigaPro, their current results are outstanding.

Aves are not very successful on the road. Over the span of 15 matches, they managed to rack up 11 points, counting just 3 wins. In outings, Aves could win only Chaves, that victory being by a minimum goal margin. The guests’ regular failures are attributed to their consistent defensive problems. The team allowed 29 goals in 15 rounds, which is the league’s worst record. They kept their goal locked only once in this campaign.
Aves gained only 1 win as of December 2018, yet in the Taca de Portugal. In terms of the Primeira fixtures, they picked up just 1 point in 5 latest rounds – in front of their own fans. On their travels, the team lost in 6 of 7 clashes wherein they missed 18 goals. In the coming encounter, Moreirense are capable of not conceding on their soil at least. The hosts’ defense failed in the beginning of the campaign; within the previous 10 games, they allowed the same number of goals as they did in 5 first rounds. At home, the team played ‘to nil’ in 4 of 5 latest matches. Moreirense have actually lost only twice at their arena in this run, and they will not probably be defeated by the visitors on Tuesday as well.
Prediction for the match: Moreirense to win with a 0.0 handicap.
