Santa Clara vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 21 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Estádio de São Miguel.
The Azoreans have a terrific h2h record at home against this opponent over the years, and they have also scored in plenty in the process. Currently they are placed seventh in the table, and are chasing a spot in the top-five.
Considering that the Conquerors are placed in the fifth position, that too with a lead of just three points, a win this Monday will help Daniel Ramos’s men climb up the standings.
However, Joao Henriques’s men have been in form lately, and they would be hesitant to lose their place in the top-most tier.
Likely, expect a fierce encounter, and goals in plenty between these two determined squads.
Santa Clara vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two had locked horns with each other just a week before, and then the Azoreans had recorded a 0-1 win on the road.
- They had also registered four of the previous seven overall wins.
- At this venue, they have a 100% winning record since 2000, barring just two meetings.
- They have also scored two or more goals in all but three clashes at this stadium in the 21st century.
Santa Clara vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Prediction
Ramos’s men have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival at home. In fact, in the past twenty years, they have won all but two of the h2h encounters here, and have scored two or more goals in all but three such clashes at this ground.
On top of that, they had also recorded a 0-1 win against the Conquerors just one week before.
As such, expect Santa Clara to avoid a loss at the very least, this Monday.
However, Henriques’s men had won three of their last five overall games, and six of the preceding ten fixtures. They had also won four of their past five road trips, and they last lost away from home back in July, against Benfica.
For the reasons, expect Guimaraes to score at least once this match-day.
