Belenenses vs Santa Clara Prediction
Belenenses SAD made a swift return to losing ways, following their flash in the pan win over Portimonense, after Benfica edged past them on the road last week in a five-goal thriller. Despite finding the back of the net twice in that latter matchup, the hosts failed to keep their counterparts at bay and ended up conceding a goal more.
With just one win from their previous six matchups, the home team are currently sitting fifteenth in a cluster of eighteen.
On the other hand, Santa Clara are sporting a healthy five-point cushion over the hosts at the moment. The guests have secured maximum points from their past two clashes as well, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Pacos de Ferriera at home.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have stumbled just once in their previous five outings. In sharp contrast, Belenenses have just one win to boast of from their past four fixtures here. Piling on even more misery, the hosts have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last two meetings with this foe on home soil.
Taking the aforementioned into consideration, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Santa Clara in this one.
Be that as it may, the visiting contingent have shared the spoils on three occasions, away from home, so far. Given that both teams were inseparable in the reverse fixture too, it will be a lot safer to back a double chance this week.
Furthermore, goals have certainly been hard to come by whenever these two sides lock horns here. All of their past four h2h meetings at this stadium have featured no more than a goal or two at the most on the final scorecards.
In addition, the visitors have won two of their previous three trips on the road by a 1-0 scorecard. Hence, count on goals to be scarce come Saturday as well.
