The hosts enter the affair in much higher spirits following an impressive run in pre-season friendlies. The strong form was backed up with the Taca da Liga victory over Vitoria Guimaraes on Monday evening.

Cristian Arango, who arrived this summer from Desportivo Aves pushed Auriverdes in front at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques, while another acquisition Jhon Murillo doubled the lead and set the final scire to push his team into the group phase of the competition.

The Bethlehem were equally successful in the League Cup, beating UD Oliveirense 3-1 at home back in late-July.

Nevertheless, the head coach Jorge Silas is worried because of lame defensive performances in friendlies which followed as Belenenses shipped six goals in three matches against the likes of Benfica II, Amora and Rayo Vallecano.

Tondela vs Belenenses: Head-to-head

Tondela only managed to beat The Bethlehem once in eight attempts.

The visitors snatched four at the same time, including the one from October last year when teams last met at Estadio Joao Cardoso (2-0).

The Bethlehem did not score a single goal in last three meetings with Auriverdes, two of which ended in goalless draws.

Tondela vs Belenenses: Prediction

Unlike his colleague on the opposite side, Pepa can be thrilled with his men’s defensive performances during the pre-season.

Tondela did not concede a single goal in last four matches, including the aforementioned League Cup win over Vitoria Guimaraes five days ago.

Knowing they also kept three straight clean sheets in H2H matches with the Bethlehem, we just have to back Auriverdes to keep things tight at the back at the 2.50 odds here.

The hosts are generally favourites to snatch the spoils, but we’ll rather go for the low-scoring affair and back the Under 2.5 goals bet at the odds of 1.60.

Tondela vs Belenenses: Bet Tips

Tondela to keep a clean sheet @ 2.50
