Santa Clara comes from the away goalless draw against Chaves, for the Portuguese league. Mario Silva’s team, in the first half, did not particularly threaten the opponent’s goal, showing early on that they are not willing to take risks in midfield, leaving defensive gaps. In the second half, the team seemed to improve, but especially towards the end of the game, they picked up the pace and started to become more threatening towards the opposing goal, without however being able to achieve anything more than a draw. A point that kept them in 16th place with 10 points, a position that sends the team that will finish there at the end of the league, into the play-offs against the 3rd team that will finish in the second tier of Portuguese football. The team does not seem to have absences for the upcoming match.
Estoril, on the other side, comes from a heavy defeat with a score (1-5) at home against Benfica, for the Portuguese league. Nelson Verissimo’s team initially had no chances at all against Portugal’s most in-form team. They were below par throughout the match and the Lisbon team took full advantage of that. At the break they found themselves losing with a score of 0-3, while in the second half Benfica reached the score to 5-0, Serginho in the delays of the match score the goal of honor for Estoril. With this defeat, Estoril fell to 10th place with 16 points after 12 rounds of the Portuguese league. The team does not seem to have absences for the upcoming match.
The prediction for the bet: The match is expected to be quite close with both teams not taking many offensive risks leaving gaps in the back. We bet on No Goal at the odd of 1.81 (TigersBet).
