Academica Preview – Can Academica set record straight at home ?

Having recently suffered back-to-back defeats away from home in the Portuguese second tier with losses incurred at Nacional and Feirense, both by 1-0 margins, Thursday night’s hosts,. Academica, will be relieved to be returning to more familiar surroundings for this upcoming clash against lowly Penafiel.

These recent losses have resulted in Academica dropping down to 7th place in the Liga Pro table but with a fairly solid looking home record which stands at 6-2-3 20/13 under their belts so far this season, the hosts will be confident that they can bounce back with a win here.

This is because Academica are unbeaten in their last 5 matches in the Liga Pro which includes winning 4 of their last 5 matches with victories chalked up against Casa Pia, Oliveirense, Cova Piedade and Academico Viseu, so the hosts will be in confident mood.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Penafiel Preview – Can Penafiel break drought?

Penafiel also dropped down the Liga Pro standings to 14th place after a 1-1 draw at home with Nacional extended their winless run in the Portuguese second tier to 7 matches, and the visitors find themselves in the lower reaches of the division ahead of this difficult looking trip to Academica.

Although they’ve found wins hard to come by in recent times, Penafiel still possess a useful looking 14-point cushion above second from bottom club, Cova Piedade, so there shouldn’t be any worries with regards relegation this time around.

However, having failed to also win any of their last 4 away matches and an overall away record of 2-3-6 9/13, the visitors look unlikely victors here as they will be up against a solid Academica outfit in their own backyard for this encounter.
