Santa Clara vs Tondela Prediction & Match Preview

Santa Clara vs Tondela
Portugal-Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 15 February 2020
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Estádio de São Miguel (Ponta Delgada).

There is a fine line that separates these teams in the points table. Only two points separate them in 9th and 11th spots. So this matchup promises to be a close affair in paper.

The home side will have a clear cut advantage with an active 3 match winning streak going on. Azoreans are fresh from a two goals win against Belenenses away from home. They have regained morale after a home win against Ferreira after a 4 game losing run.

Meanwhile the visitors are also high on morale after an away win against Portimonense. But this does not account to anything as the latter are a struggling team in the relegation zone. The only advantage that the gold and greens have is that they are unbeaten at this venue since October 2014.
