Moreirense vs Tondela
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 17th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).
The inability of Ivo Vieira’s men to eliminate the streaks of losses that creep into the midst of their winning runs has prevented them from rightfully occupying a spot in the European positions. They are just below Sporting, who now holds the final continental ticket, but there’s a seven-point barrier to jump.
Though the task seems difficult, the team will not give up chasing after it, as has been their attitude on the pitch. And I’ve got to say, the next fixture will encourage them to go after this objective.
The reason being, CDT, their next opponent, has been struggling on the road since the beginning of the season. They have also conceded the same number of goals as the 18th team in the league table, Feirense, and let in more than them, in away ties.

Moreirense vs Tondela Prediction
The favorites for this game is fittingly the team from Minho. They are playing in their home turf and has posted excellent stats at this venue all season long. To be precise, since August, they had just a single loss in front of their home crowd, and that too for a meager scoreline of 1-0. They have also found the back of the net in nine of their last ten attempts at home.
Auriverdes were winless in four of their last five overall games and conceded in 24 of their last 27 fixtures. They were also winless in six of their last matches on the road, and in 16 of their last 21 official ties away from home. Their defense has been a liability for them all through 2018-19, conceding in par with the bottom-most team in the table.
Bank on the hosts to capitalize on this favorable draw. They will try to get on top of things early on, and in all probability will score the first goal of the game. After dominating throughout the ninety minutes, the team should have three definite points in their kitty.
