Tondela vs Pacos de Ferreira Match preview
Tondela’s three-match unbeaten streak in the league lately ended with a 2-0 defeat on the road against Sporting last time out in the campaign. Since they are returning home, it will not be a concern for Natxo Gonzalez about his team’s recent loss.
Auriverdes have lost just two of their previous seven home games in the schedule and their 2-0 win in their latest home match was the first time this league season they scored more than 2 goals here. Their home league fixtures have averaged a low rate of 1.9 goals per game this season.
Winning four of their last six games has boosted Pacos de Ferreira’s prospects of avoiding relegation in the league table this season. All four victories in their schedule saw both teams score in it, showing they haven’t raised a huge wall at the back.
The visitors have three away league wins this season from their 13 attempts so far, but two came within their last three trips on the road; after netting over three goals in both triumphs. However, scoring an average of just 0.8 goals per match in their league away games is a concern.
Tondela vs Pacos de Ferreira Head-to-head (h2h)

- The host is unbeaten at home in the last two clashes.
Tondela vs Pacos de Ferreira Prediction
Tondela is not at their best at home and ground advantage will not be a potent factor in favor if the host in the clash. Even so, their prior win at home will increase the morale of the players.
Ferreira is not the strongest candidate away from home. Their poor away form in the league will give a slight edge for the host and hence, the double chance favoring Tondela at 1.40 odds will be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
A high goal count is unlikely here based on their last three games, which saw just one or neither side score. Besides, only one of the host’s past nine fixtures witnessed over 2.5 goals in a clash. The tip for over 1.5 goals with 1.44 odds will be the safest bet from the goals area.
