Crucial battle in the "wrong" end of the Primeira Liga, with both Moreirense and Vizela going through more stress than delight. This game is a classic "six-pointer" with the home side positioned 17th and the guests in 14th place.

Insights:
  • Moreirense have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.
  • Vizela have played more matches over 2,5 goals away than home.

Moreirense are fighting like crazy to avoid relegation and desperately need points in this fixture. Vizela is no longer fighting for a cause; they can neither go up or down this season.
