Estoril vs Vitoria de Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 14th August 2017
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio António Coimbra da Mota, Estoril.
Estoril welcome Vitoria de Guimaraes on Monday evening, one of the teams that always cause trouble at António Coimbra da Mota. The hosts have opened the season poorly, while Guimaraes have kicked off the new campaign with a victory.
Estoril had a difficult match in the first round as they faced FC Porto on the road. As expected, the Dragons obliterated them with 4-0.
The home sides had a rather successful preseason. They won three out of four games and they displayed offensive-minded tactic, unlike the most teams in Portugal.
Vitoria de Guimaraes
The away team had already endured the first disappointing of the season. Prior to the first league game, they faced Benfica in Portuguese Super Cup where they were beaten with convincing 3-1.
It’s clear that Guimaraes is far from Benfica, Porto and Sporting in the terms of quality and they will most likely fight in the Cup and for one of the spots that leads into UEFA competitions.
In the first round they beat Chaves 3-2 and despite having 3-0 lead Guimaraes allowed two goals and the exciting ending.
Estoril vs Vitoria de Guimaraes: Head-to-head
Guimaraes have excellent results in the last five games against Estoril as they won three matches while remaining unbeaten in two.
The visitors even won in three out of last five Estoril visits.
Estoril vs Vitoria de Guimaraes: Prediction
Guimaraes are the justified favorites in this clash. The handicap is well set, so betting on the goals is a wise decision. The scenario where both teams will score is unlikely as Guimaraes will focus on the defense after two home goals allowed, while Estoril’s attack doesn’t seem very convincing so far.
