Chaves vs Tondela
Portugal- Primeira Liga.
Date: Sunday, 13th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Chaves (Chaves).
As half of the season is over, Chaves are strong contenders for relegation from the Primeira Liga. They are at the bottom of the table with 2 wins and 11 losses in their 16 matches so far.
The Flavienses are the lowest scoring team in the competitions with 10 goals in their matches so far while conceding 23 goals in return. In their last 5 competitive games, they have 1 win and 3 defeats. The only win came over Varzim in the Cup. They are without a win in the league for the last 6 matches, of which they lost 4 games.
More than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 6 matches in all competitions. They also failed to keep a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 matches across all venues. The fans are awestruck with such a situation for a team that finished 6th last season. Something has to be done soon or they may be playing in the LigaPro next season.
The CDT is on a 3 match win streak in the league at present. A win in the cup makes it 4 wins on the row in all competitions for the team from Tondela. This run came after a similar 4 match losing streak, which saw them concede 2 goals per match. The last 4 games they played ended with the same score 2-1.
But in away games, the team managed by Pepa has been stuttering. His side has lost 3 and won the remaining 2 of the 5 matches on the road in both cup and league. In 4 of those 5 matches, the full-time score had more than 2.5 goals in total. Also, they failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 matches away from home which shows major loopholes in defense.

Chaves vs Tondela: Prediction
Even though Chaves have been losing recent games, at present they are on a 2 match drawing streak in the Primeira Liga. Both these matches have been goalless draws also. So we may see a draw on Sunday against Tondela too. Meanwhile, the latter has won 4 matches on the trot and are very much in the rhythm. Thus a bet can be placed on a Double Chance for either a draw or Tondela to win with 1.72 odds.
In the last 8 matches on the road played by the Gold and Greens, both sides scored. This points at their poor defensive show in away games. The same trend can be seen in 4 of eth last 6 home games of Chaves. Also considering the fact that the last 3 meetings on the row at this venue ended with both teams finding the net, we can place bets on both teams scoring with 2.00 odds.
