Football Bet of the Day: Party time in Portugal



It’s the final day of the Primeira Liga season and Tobias Gourlay reckons at least two teams are ready to let their hair down

Moreirense v Famalicao
Wednesday 20:00

In Italy yesterday, Torino held Lazio to a goalless draw that keeps them in Serie A for another season but took our bet down.

We’re in Portugal today for the final day of the Primeira Liga season. Our focus is the game between 10th-placed Moreirense and 8th-placed Famalicao, who are both comfortably mid-table on 40 points. Free from any pressure, there are signs that these two will play to entertain their fans.

Both teams have scored in nine of Moreirense’s 10 league home games under current management. Six of the 10 got to Over 2.5 Goals and we fancy today’s visitors can lift this one over the line.

Famalicao have scored 12 times across their last five road trips, which include visits to champions Sporting (1-1) and second-placed Porto (2-3). Five of their last six away games have produce Over 2.5 Goals and, released from any real responsibility in this match, we fancy they will lay on a few more goals in Moreira this evening.
