Portimonense vs Chaves
Portugal – Primeira Liga.
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão (Portimão).
The relegation-placed Chaves will travel to Portimao to face the hosts Portimonense, this Tuesday.
Chaves are awaiting a possible relegation to the LigaPro after this season. This has definitely been a tear to forget for their fans and Manager Tiago Fernandes. The team who finished 6th last time around have lost 12 of their 18 league games so far. About 28 goals have been conceded by their defense while scoring only 13 in return.
The Flavienses are completely depleted after their recent loss in the league. Reigning champs Porto came visiting and left with 3 points with that match ending 1-4. They have to get some wins now or they will lose the opportunity to stay at the top tier.
The hosts are better than their opponents for Tuesday in all aspects of the game. They are mid-table after 18 rounds are completed. But they have conceded more than what they scored. Since the table is congested a win may help them get into the top 5 in the table.
The team from Portimao are having a great home run. They are unbeaten in their last 8 matches in front of the home fans, with 5 wins included. In 5 of those 8 games more than 2.5 goals scored, but what worries them is that they conceded in 8 of their last 9 home games.
Portimonense will most probably have an easy walk in the park as they face Chaves. But they may have to keep their backline strong, unlike their previous games.

Portimonense vs Chaves: Prediction
Even though Chaves has been winning all the previous 3 h2h matches against the hosts, at their current form I don’t see that happening. Also, the home side is unbeaten in their last 8 home fixtures. So we can bet on the hosts to win with 1.86 odds.
In 4 of their recent 5 h2h games at this venue, both these sides found the net. The hosts have been scoring consecutively at home but they have also conceded in 8 of their 9 home matches recently as well.
