Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 5 June 2020
Kick-off at 21:15 UK/ 22:15 CET
Venue: Estádio do CD das Aves (Vila das Aves).
Nuno Santos’s men have been the worst of the lot all season long, and they are easily the major contenders to get relegated at the end of the campaign. They need to reduce a nine-point deficit from the remaining ten match-ups, while they have secured a total of 13 points from 24 games. The comparatively better Belenenses should register a win this Friday.

Aves vs Belenenses Prediction
Santos’s men have been the worst squad in the whole competition, and they have the stats to back this claim up. Not only are they placed dead last in the table, after losing 19 of their total 24 games so far, but they have also conceded the most number of goals so far in the whole tournament (47).
Moreover, they were winless in 20 of their preceding 23 overall fixtures, and had lost 19 of these as well. At home, they are on a four-fixture losing run, and have lost nine of their preceding eleven appearances at this stadium. On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten in their prior four overall matches, and in their last two road trips.
On top of that, Teixeira’s men had won two of the prior three h2h clashes, and had scored two or more goals in three of the former four such encounters. As such, expect Belenenses to avoid a loss this Friday against the worst team in the tournament.
However, understand that Santos’s men had scored two or more goals in seven of the preceding eight h2h fixtures, and they are on a five-game winning run in such meetings at this stadium. Moreover, the last the hosts lost at this venue was back in 2006. Considering these stats, it’s implied that goals could come from both teams this weekend.
