Segunda Liga Betting at bet365

Varzim Prediction

Varzim sit in 9th place in the Segunda Liga but head into this encounter having lost just once in their last five matches which was a 4-3 defeat at home to 7th placed Penafiel, but recent wins over Arouca and Sporting Braga B along with draws against Academico Viseu and Famalicao have helped maintain their top half league position.

The hosts possess a home record of 2-2-4 10/11 and have managed to record just one win on home turf in their last six matches, but this run also includes a win over Porto B along with stalemates against Farense and the aforementioned Academico.

Forwards Toro (4 goals), Awurum and Ruster (2 goals apiece) are the danger men in attack for Varzim who registered a 2-0 win over Cova Piedade in their last meeting which was in the Taca de Portugal.

Cova Piedade Prediction

Cova Piedade head into this clash having suffered back-to-back defeats against Mafra and Academica, both in 3-0 losses which has seen them drop down to 13th place in the Segunda Liga
and they face a tricky trip to Varzim on Wednesday night.

Cova Piedade had previously put together a four-match unbeaten run which saw the visitors record wins over Sporting Braga B and Leixoes along with points against Famalicao and Academico Viseu.

Away from home though, Cova Piedade have managed to register just one win on their travels from their last seven matches which gives the hosts, Varzim, a very decent chance of picking up at least a point here.

An away record of 2-3-3 5/8 has declined in recent weeks with their best work on the road happening earlier in the season, and in addition, the visitors have failed to score in 4 of their 8 away matches so far this season which could be another deciding factor in the outcome of this encounter.

Betting Tips Verdict

Varzim’s steady improvement at home should see them get something from the visit by Cova Piedade.
