Vitoria Guimaraes have little to play for in the closing stages of the 2017/18 season as they are far away from the European qualification zone as well as the relegation waters. They were in the Europa League group phase this season, but they are a massive 34 points outside the zone at the moment.
Guimaraes has been pretty steady at home this season and won 8 of their 15 matches so far this season. It is the away form that is the difference from last season.
Last week saw Guimaraes lose 1-2 away at Feirense making it 9 road defeats on the bounce. Yet, they will be in a positive mood since they are unbeaten in the last four at the Estadio Afonso Henriques.
Moreirense are 13th in the table and are still in the reach of relegation tide. The bottom two sides are just 5 points behind them and therefore they must pick a win from the remaining 3 games.
Form is good for Moreirense though, they won 4, drew 1 and lost 2 of their last 7 league games. However, they remain on a four match win-less run on the road with three of those being defeats. Moreover, Moreirense have won just 3 games away from home this season and lost a massive 10 from the 15 so far.
