FC Porto vs Tondela
Portugal – Super Cup
Date: Saturday, 30 July 2022
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Aveiro.
It is quite ironic that the Portuguese Super Cup will be contested between the previous champions of the top flight and a team that was relegated at the end of the campaign – Porto and Tondela, respectively.
Porta had secured the top-most position in style the last season. They had lost just once all through the campaign and by posting 91 points against their name from just 34 fixtures, they had a lead of 6 points over the second-placed team as well.
They had scored a total of 86 goals during this stretch, while 15 of the total 18 teams in the competition could not even go past the 60-goal mark.
Do also note that 14 of the total 18 squads in the tournament had failed to keep the number of conceded goals below 40, while the champions had let in just 22.
Meanwhile, Tondela had finished 17th in a table of 18 and now will have to spend an entire season in the second division. They were able to deliver a total of just 7 wins all through their campaign, and had let in the most number of goals of all the teams in the tournament as well.
In fact, while they had conceded 67 goals, none of the other teams had let in even 60 goals.
Going on they also have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years and judging all these observations it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Porto this Saturday.
