Santa Clara is at the bottom, in the 16th spot with only 10 points. From the 14 games they played, they won only 2 of them while 4 ended in a draw. They lost in more than half of the fixtures standing at 8 with having a meager goals to conceding ratio on the table at 12:30.
The Azoreans have scored only half a dozen while their defenders saw a dozen go past them from the previous 5 fixtures. They really need a serious upgrade in defensive structure with the previous game against Maritimo saw a 1-4 vanquishing.
Guimaraes is at the 7th spot on the standing with 22 points from 14 games. They won on 6 occasions while the number of loss and draws share 4 each. They score fairly but tends to concede in same with 21:15.
They have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 8 goals in total. They won the last 2 back to back matches against Tondela and Ferreira, but they were unable to maintain a clean sheet in those fixtures.
Estadio de Sao Miguel never saw a home win from the past 2 fixtures against this foe in addition to not able to grab a victory against Guimaraes in the past 4 league games as well.
We envisage an away win this Friday because of the remarkable away performance of the hosts and taking into account of their previous h2h dominance.
