Tondela vs Feirense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 17 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Joao Cardoso (Tondela).
Tondela have a huge opportunity to return to winning ways and pick up salvation points on Sunday evening when they play host to rock-bottomed Feirense. The hosts sit third from bottom and are just one point shy of safe zone. They simply have to look for a victory against last-placed team which practically lost all hopes of saving the elite class status being 11 points below the safe zone line with just nine games left to play.
Auriverdes had a challenging schedule with matches against Moreirense and Porto lately which is why we’ll take their four-game winless streak with reserve. They enjoyed a very strong form on the home patch recently. The hosts won four and lost two (against Aves and Porto) of past six home outings in the league. One of victories came against the likes of Sporting Lisbon. Tondela drew 0-0 to Vitoria Setubal last weekend on the road.
Tondela vs Feirense: Head-to-head
Tondela were the dominant side in the most recent head to head history against Azuis da Feira.
Auriverdes won each of last three meetings with Feirense.
The thread includes this term’s 2-4 victory at Estadio Marcolino de Castro.
Tondela vs Feirense: Prediction
Feirense were not pulling up any trees lately and they are practically one foot in Segunda Liga. They lost seven on the bounce in the league. Filipe Martins came on the bench last month to try and save Feirense from relegation, but he failed to shift team’s fortunes around.
Azuis da Feira are particularly struggling on travels as they scored only one goal in past eight away matches in Primeira Liga. They bagged no more than 3 goals in 13 away games in the entire season.
This is the opportunity the hosts must take advantage of and we will back them to claim the spoils with higher stakes at 1.85 odds. The alternative bet would be Tondela to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.25.
