Tondela vs Pacos Ferreira
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 30th September, 2016
Kick-off: 20:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Jose Cardoso, Tondela.
The fight against relegation in this year’s edition of Portugal Primeira Liga is going to be very tense. According to many experts, this league should reduce the number of participating teams in order to increase the quality. There are a lot of squads considered to be total underdogs in a majority of games they play. One of those teams is Tondela, hammered to the bottom of the table after six matches played. The squad from Estadio Jose Cardoso will try to improve their standings on Friday night when they will host mid – table team Pacos de Ferreira.
One of the main reasons for such bad stats of Tondela is awful offense. Their strikers have managed to net only two goals so far, which is making them the most inefficient team in the league. Both of them were scored by Guedes, who will represent the biggest threat for Pacos’s defense. The visitors are in far better position than Tondela. The number of collected points in this campaign raised to 8 after 2 – 1 victory against Rio Ave last week.
Tondela vs Pacos Ferreira: Head-to-Head stats
These two teams haven’t met before that often before last season, mainly because Tondela were nowhere close to elite division status in Portugal.
Three games were played between them so far with Pacos winning the first two. While Tondela took a surprise win in the latest clash between them in May. They claimed an unexpected 4-1 victory on the road. Lucas Souza was the hero of that match with two goals.
Tondela vs Pacos de Ferreira: Prediction
Both of these two sides have been struggling in the offense lately, especially the hosts. Under 2.5 goals seem like the most logical choice and the odds backing it up are quite solid. There is a high chance of having a goalless match at the half – time mark as well.
