Tondela vs Aves
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Estádio João Cardoso (Tondela).
The Gold and Greens have displayed immense courage in turning back their season around after the bad course it took. In the last six-match days, the team had been unbeaten in five, and won four in a row, as a cherry on top. More than that, they have really started to do justice to their ever hard-working frontline that has been delivering without fail, only to be let down by their faulty defense. But, no more.
Augusto Inacio’s men have shown justice to their tag of a lower-tier team almost in every sense, except for their goal-scoring prowess. It’s funny that the fifth-placed team in the league table has scored just three goals more than our visitors for the day, placed 16th in standings.
Tondela vs Aves Head-to-head (h2h)

- The hosts have scored in every single fixture at the stadium, bar one.
Tondela vs Aves Prediction
Pedro Filipe’s men won four of their last six matches and were unbeaten in five of them. The team also won their last three home-ties in a row and looks really daring to go further, with their defensive woes finally being addressed. It might be not perfect yet, but still, it would be hard for their offensive threat to go all in the drain anymore.
Their opposite number has lost their last three away ties in a row and was winless in nine of their last eleven overall games. Also, the team has won just once this season on the road, in league games. Furthermore, the team stood winless in 17 of their last 20 away fixtures.
Taking into account these observations, I expect the home team to win.
Now, coming to goals, the last seven fixtures of the Gold and Greens had goals at either end of the pitch, and the team found the back of the net in 20 of their last 22 attempts at home. Their counterparts took part in five matches where goals came from both teams, in their last seven overall tries. Also, four of the last five h2h ties at this venue saw both teams on the scorecard.
I expect either squad to get into goal-scoring duty this match-day.
