Player to watch – Bruno Duarte

Durate, who used to play for Vitoria Guimaraes, has netted nine times in 26 appearances in the Primeira Liga this season, his best goalscoring run in any league since scoring nine times for Ukrainian side Lviv in 2018/19.

Top scorer for Farense this season

We're backing Durate to make the difference in this game, leading Farense to the win they need to move back about Boavista in the Primeira Liga table.
