Tondela vs Boavista Prediction
The Gold and Greens lost 2-0 on the road the prior game week, against Guimaraes. It was their third defeat on the trot, and the ninth winless game from the previous ten attempts. This run of unimpressive performances have made the squad one of the worst in the whole competition at the moment.
Ramos’s men lost 0-1 at home meanwhile, against Gil Vicente. Probably a month back, the team had a realistic chance of making the European spots. But the recent loss of form has adversely affected their chances, and the players will have to compensate with some huge wins.
This desperation could help the side though in this upcoming encounter, considering it’s against a team from the bottom tier. Moreover, Gonzalez’s men are on a three-match losing run, were winless in nine of their former ten games, and had scored just two goals from their prior six fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts were on a three-game winning run before their tough schedule began. On the road, disregarding their loss against Sporting (one of the best teams in the country), the Panthers are on a two-game winning streak, and have kept clean sheets in both.
As such, expect Boavista to put forth a good performance, and to avoid a loss at the least. On that same note, expect them to deliver a fine defensive display. Especially against the faltering frontline of the Gold and Greens, Boavista are expected to keep a clean sheet.
