Foot Predictions shows the confrontation of the First League on Wednesday, between Vitória de Guimarães and SC Farense, including tips, preview and possible lineups.
Guimarães to win to receive SC Farense to Estádio D. Afonso Henriques on Wednesday, after the visitors rose from the foot of the Premier League table last time.
The home team tries to end a series of three games without winning, while Farense recorded their first league win in five games on Saturday.
The home team comes to this game with only two points won in the last three games, having previously won three consecutive games in the championship.
More recently, the Guimarães team fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to Rio Ave, with the visitors winning 2-0 until Ricardo Quaresma pulled a goal back to Joao henriqueson the side, before Gelson Dala immediately restored the visiting team’s two-goal lead.
The result came after two consecutive draws for Henriques’ men, first with Benfica tied, before drawing 1-1 with Belenenses.
Despite their weak recent form, Wednesday’s hosts are comfortably in sixth place in the Premier League, six points ahead of seventh-placed Moreirense, with one game less for all the teams around them.
Henriques can pay more attention to the teams that are above them in the division, as his team is only four points from fifth place Pacos de Ferreira, for having played one game less, which means that a victory on Wednesday would leave them to a point in the top five division.
Vitória’s comfortable position in the league is largely due to his solid defensive record, with only two teams in the first division suffering less than his 17 this season.
The team seeks to return to the victories at the D. Afonso Henrique Stadium next Wednesday, but it will not be an easy task, as they face the Farense team with some renewed confidence.
Jorge Costa won his first victory as coach of Farense the last time, when he secured a 3-2 victory in the field of Nacional.
In a dramatic encounter, Costa’s team scored two goals ahead by Andre Pinto and Ryan Gauld, before the hosts scored twice to draw in the last 10 minutes.
It was the second scorer of Nacional who made the final impact, as only three minutes after scoring a draw, Pedro Mendes he turned the ball over to his own net and saw Farense take home the three points.
The result took Os Leoes de Faro from the bottom of the table, and from the relegation zone, with the Algarve team occupying 15th position, with one game less in the three teams below in the table.
Costa has directed three games since his appointment as coach of Farense, adding four points thanks to the victory over Nacional, as well as the remarkable 1-1 draw with eighth-placed Santa Clara on the day of his appointment.
He hopes his team will be able to continue their recovery in form with an away win on Wednesday, which would lead them further away from the last three.

Despite the positive result of the recent Farense, we can see them being slightly behind a team from Vitória that is desperate to return to the victories and reduce the distance between them and the fifth place.
Although the visitors looked much better in the attack recently, we anticipate that the superior offensive ranks of Henriques’ team will lead them to a narrow victory over the struggling Farense.
