Sporting Covilha Preview – Can Covilha continue steady run?

A steady recent run of results in the Portuguese Segunda Liga has seen Thursday’s hosts, Sporting Covilha, suffer just the one defeat out of their last six matches overall and has enabled them to avoid being dragged down near to the relegation zone.

The one loss was a 2-0 defeat at home to Feirense, but wins against Varzim and Academico Viseu along with points picked up in draws with Vizela, Mafra and Vilafranquense have kept Sporting Covilha out of trouble and eight points above the bottom two.

However, an indifferent looking record at home of 3-4-3 15/14 suggests that the goals market is the best option here especially as seven of Covilha’s 10 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals to date.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Penafiel Preview – Can Penafiel make recovery?

A 2-1 defeat at home to Academica resulted in a fifth loss in eight matches overall in the Portuguese Segunda Liga for Penafiel as the visitors dropped down to 12th place on the domestic second tier standings ahead of this midweek clash against Sporting Covilha.

Penafiel’s decline hasn’t been helped by five defeats out of these last eight matches but there’s been plenty of goals in the process with five of these eight matches producing three goals or more while further goals could be in store on Thursday afternoon.

Penafiel have picked up just two away wins all season amidst an away record of 2-2-5 12/17 but again, the goals market appeals here as seven of Penafiel’s 10 away matches have also seen over 2.5 goals scored.
