Tondela vs Boavista
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 19 April 2019
Kick-Off 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Joao Cardoso (Tondela).
Matchday No 30 will begin with a relegation six-pointer between Tondela and Boavista on Friday afternoon at Estadio Joao Cardoso. Visitors are in a somewhat better situation coming into the tie with a four-point cushion on Tondela who are just one point above the danger area. With five games left to play, you can only imagine the tension expected to be present in and around the stadium on the day.
Pepa’s men claimed a super-important 3-2 victory over Portimonense in the previous home fixture in the league. They could not do much to prevent a tough 3-0 defeat away at much stronger Sporting Braga last weekend, though. However, Tondela are now once again looking at a winnable contest in front of the home crowd where they won four of past seven matches in all competitions.
Tondela vs Boavista: Head-to-head
Hosts lead the head to head tie by one win coming into 14th clash with Boavista.
Tondela won three, drew one and lost one of five home clashes against As Panteras.
Boavista took a comfortable 2-0 victory when they hosted Tondela in the first part of the season in mid-December last year.
Tondela vs Boavista: Prediction
Home court advantage will play a massive role here. Boavista are one of worst travellers in the league with a record of 1 win, 4 draws and 10 defeats in 15 games on the road. As Panteras lost six and drew one of last seven Primeira Liga outings away from home. They scored just four goals in the process and we’d not be surprised to see them struggling to create in the final third here against Tondela.
Knowing about the head to head record, Tondela’s form at Estadio Joao Cardoso (four wins in past seven matches across competitions) and Boavista’s dreadful streak on the road, we have to go for the home win bet at the 2.20 odds as the main betting option here.
