With 1 Primeira Liga win, 4 draws and 5 defeats from their home games, Famalicão, who have the the worst goal difference (-14) in Primeira Liga, are certainly not brimming with confidence.

Famalicão are confident in defense, having played 263 minutes without conceding a goal in the league.

It's back home for Famalicão, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Rio Ave away with the result 1-0. Manuel Ugarte found the net in that victory. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 0-0 versus Belenenses.

This is expected to be a close game, with Famalicão perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.
