Belenenses vs Tondela
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.30 UK/ 16.30 CET
Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisabon – Oeiras).
Auriverdes face a stern test in the form of an away trip, to take on O Belem after their four-match winning run was brought to a halt in the last match-day by Chaves. Of the total five wins they secured from the whole of the league season so far, three came in a row in December. It helped them a great deal to put some distance from the relegation-battlers. But the danger is not over yet.
The Bethlehem played their last two matches with utmost care and secured very tough but inspiring wins. After two straight losses, it was imperative that the team get back on to the right track.
Despite the ten-point difference in the league table between the teams, both have scored the same number of goals from their 17 matches each. Goals conceded, is a totally different matter.
Belenenses vs Tondela Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last six h2h matches in a row had under 2.5 match goals.
- The last five matches between these teams had a combined four goals amongst them.
- Only three goals came in total, in the last three h2h ties at this venue.
- The Gold and Greens failed to score in three of their last five matches against this opponent at the Estádio Nacional do Jamor.
- Four of the last five h2h matches at this venue failed to have both teams on the scorecard.
Belenenses vs Tondela Prediction
Goals have always been scarce whenever these teams took the pitch together. And now, more than ever, the chance for one more low-scoring match is high as both teams will be playing with an intention not to lose.
The last two games between the teams at this stadium ended with a 0-0 scoreline. Four of the last five h2h matches at this venue did not see both teams finding goals. The last five overall head-to-head games in a row had just a total of four goals between them.
The Pastries kept clean sheets in three of their last five games at home against CDT. Pedro Filipe’s men did one better and kept clean sheets in the last three games in a row against Jorge Fernandes’s men.
I think it will be safe and rewarding to back the 0-0 scoreline at half time, and the Under 2.5 goals option.
