Santa Clara vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: Estádio de São Miguel (Ponta Delgada).
The European spots are out of bounds for either of these squads. Safety is guaranteed in the league as well. Going forward, these teams are not under much pressure, and the remaining eight games will see a lot of tactical changes and experimental line-ups.
Guimaraes holds the fifth spot in league standings, just below the last European entry. But a mammoth 13 points stand in between that objective. It would be a loser’s battle now to think that Sporting would just give up their hard-earned Europa qualification.
Santa Clara suffered at home for quite some time, before they came back to sense, and rallied to turn the situation around. After a terrible run that spanned three months, right now they are unbeaten in the last three games at home.
Santa Clara vs Vitoria Guimaraes Head-to-head (h2h)
- 11 of the last 12 games saw the hosts of the day taking the win.

- Five of the last six matches at this venue saw Santa Clara taking the three points.
- Guimaraes could return only two goals in total from their last five visits.
Santa Clara vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction
The home advantage will be the biggest deciding factor as far as the outcome of the game is concerned. Except for a single h2h encounter, every single one saw the home side taking the win. At this venue, Santa Clara recorded wins in five of the last six such meetings.
Going on, the away teams have failed in front of the goal more than often. Seven of the last ten ties had the away team drawing blanks. At this stadium, Guimaraes could manage only two goals from their last five visits.
A win for the hosts is on the cards. But it needs to be noted that they have just turned around their home form. They had been struggling at home for quite some time, and for the reason, we believe, the win would be a very narrow one. Expect a 1-0 win for the hosts.
