Nacional vs Tondela
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 27 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Estadio de Madeira, Funchal.
Sunday’s Portugal Primeira Liga action kicks-off in Funchal where demoralized hosts Nacional welcomes Tondela. Both teams are currently sitting on the edge of the relegation zone, and would surely want to end 2020 in victorious style.
Nacional have been losing a lot of games lately (three in a row) and pretty much annulled all the good work done in September. They conceded six goals and scored only one in the last three weeks.
Luckily, the opposition is doing bad too. Tondela’s fans are not feeling optimistic after their squad collected only one point in the last three outings.
Bookies have done their match and decided that hosts have a better shot at winning this encounter, pricing them at 2.00 odds.
Nacional vs Tondela Head-to-head
Every single encounter between these two opponents in the last four years has been exciting and action-packed. Five out of the last six have ended either Over 2.5 goals or BTTS.
Nacional were victorious in five occasions, Tondela in three. Average number of goals scored in all duels so far is 2.66 per match.
Nacional defeated Tondela at this stadium last year in March 3-2 and sent them to tier two division.
Nacional vs Tondela Prediction
Tondela have faced Porto twice in December already (divisional and cup game) and were defeated narrowly in both occasions 1-2 and 3-4. The most recent Primeira Liga game against Moreirense was slightly disappointing.
Team didn’t look hungry enough to hunt the win, but rather sat back and was happy with a goalless draw. They are only one point and one position above the relegation zone at the moment.
Both of the teams have been struggling with scoring goals this season (scored 9 goals each), so we feel that Under 2.5 FT is the way to go with the goals market despite previous head to head stats. The current price is 1.70.
As for the full-time winner, Nacional secured only one victory this season at home while big majority of duels ended without a winner. Draw should be backed as secondary option with lower stake.
