Santa Clara vs Aves
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Tuesday, 14 July 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Cidade do Futebol (Lisbon – Oeiras).
The poor run on the road by Aves in the campaign will probably constitute the comeback for Santa Clara struggling to find points in the league table.
Santa Clara vs Aves Match preview
Santa Clara is on a three-game losing streak in the campaign and has scored no goals in those three losses in their schedule. All three losses were in a one-goal margin, showing their slight quirks in defense.
They will return home after a 1-0 loss on the road against Sporting CP last time out.
The host has 5 wins and 7 losses in their 15 home matches in the campaign until now. Even though it is not the strongest record at home, it will be likely enough against the bottom-dweller in the clash.
Aves finally marked a win in their previous encounter with a 1-0 home win against Setubal. The win had come after 11 winless games in their schedule with just 2 draws in it.
The visitor had failed to score a goal for the past eight fixtures in their schedule prior to this win. Having won only one of their 16 away fixtures so far, Aves is likely not to pose a threat to the home team.
Santa Clara vs Aves Head-to-head (h2h)

- Both teams have scored in two of the last five fixtures.
- The host is winless at home in their past six meetings.
Santa Clara vs Aves Prediction
Santa Clara is on a rough patch in the league right now, and they direly need a win. Facing the side from the ultimate bottom of the table puts back the limelight upon the host for a brief period when they are the favorites to win the clash.
The host enjoys the home ground advantage as they have a mixed form in the overall league and in addition to that, Aves is at their worst performance on the road this season. With such a poor away form, it is unlikely for the visitor to threaten the home team.
The home-win in full-time with 1.66 odds will probably be the best bet in the encounter. Even though a high-scoring affair is not in sight, the tip for over 1.5 goals based on their recent scoring spree will be a suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns at 1.40 odds.
