Portimonense vs Santa Clara – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Portimonense step into the game after having been beaten 1-0 by table leaders Benfica in the recent match. Santa Clara were thrashed the first game of 2023 after a 4-0 home defeat against Sporting Braga.

Stalemate

Portimonense produced a very strong performance against Benfica in the recent match. Even though the team did suffer a defeat at the end of the day, it was by a very narrow margin. Santa Clara, unfortunately, have been very poor throughout the campaign and they are now heading towards the bottom three places in the league table. In the recent head-to-head meetings, this prediction has noticed that Portimonense and Santa Clara can be quite hard to separate. Furthermore, the visitors have the confidence of a new manager in the dugout.

Total goals under 2.5

The lack of a victory for Portimonense in the recent four home matches is a major problem with regards to confidence. Santa Clara head into the match with a new manager and this is likely to boost their own confidence levels even if recent results have not been great. The two teams are likely to be quite poor in front of goal once again – as they have been in many of the recent matches.

Both teams to score – yes

The defence of Portimonense and Santa Clara has been a big let down. In the last six meetings between each other, there have been goals at both ends of the pitch. This prediction expects the same to continue in the upcoming match.

Portimonense

Portimonense have dropped down to 11th place following the latest loss against Benfica – the third in a row in the league.

Santa Clara

Santa Clara continue to struggle for ideas with regards to getting the team back on track when it comes to survival in the league. One positive for Santa Clara will be the return of Costinha.
