Pacos Ferreira vs Tottenham
UEFA Europa Conference League – Play-Off’s
Date: 19 August 2021 (Thursday)
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Capital do Móvel Municipal Stadium.
The Portuguese side welcome this newly coached Tottenham Hotspur squad into their own backyard for the very first time in their history which is a proud moment for the home side and their fans.
Ferreira will be aiming for a better result after losing 3-0 to Boavista in their last encounter in the Primeira Liga. That result is not a good sign for the home side as they will be concerned about the number of goals, they have conceded in the recent past which is deeply worrying.
In the last four league games, Pacos Ferreira have scored five goals and conceded a total of 6 goals.
On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur come on the back of a famous 1-0 win against Manchester City who were last season’s Premier League winners.
The win will be a huge morale booster for the Lilywhites as they look forward to seal their place in the next play-off round.

Pacos Ferreira vs Tottenham Prediction
There is no doubt that Nuno Espirito Santo will be playing his second-string side in this encounter. Yet, the upper hand will go to the side from London as they have a lot of players looking to impress the head coach and will take the game away from the Portuguese outfit.
Spurs to win look like a banker, considering how their defence has improved of late and this was quite clear from the pre-season.
