Tip Reasoning

Hosts Sagrada Esperanca sit one place and 3pts behind Saturday’s guests Desportivo Huila and with both teams in good form we’re expecting a close and competitive ninety minutes between the pair. The hosts lost 1-0 last time out against struggling Progresso, which brought an end to a 6-game unbeaten run, while Desportivo Huila claimed a 1-0 win away at the league leaders Petro Luanda.

Under 2.5 goals to be scored

  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 6 of the last 7 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Sagrada Esperanca’s last 3 matches.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in 5 of Desportivo Huila’s last 6 matches.

These two teams have produced a lot of low-scoring games against one another in recent seasons, with six of the duos’ last seven encounters producing under 2.5 goals. The last time these two teams met, back in October, they played out a 0-0 draw, which made it three goalless games between the two clubs in their last five meetings.

The hosts last three outings before Saturday’s clash have also produced under 2.5 goals while five of Desportivo Huila’s last six matches have also seen fewer than 3-goals scored, adding further weight to our prediction for under 2.5 goals to be scored this weekend. Both teams have looked strong in defence of late but are guilty of not creating or taking enough chance in games with both scoring just 4-goals in their last four games.

Final Score: 0-0 Draw

  • 3 of the last 5 encounters between these two clubs have ended goalless.
  • Both teams have scored in just 2 of the pairs’ last 7 meetings.
  • Desportivo Huila have kept clean sheets in 4 of their last 5 matches.

With both teams performing to a very similar standard this season and three of their last five matches against one another ending goalless, you can certainly understand why we have backed a final scoreline of 0-0 between the pair this weekend. As mentioned above, six of the duos’ last seven meetings have produced under 2.5 goals and neither side have been scoring or conceding many goals heading into Saturday’s clash.

The hosts have kept two clean sheets in their last three matches and failed to score last time out while the visitors have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches but have failed to score in three of those games as well. With little between the pair in the table and both teams in decent form its hard to pick a winner for Saturday’s match and a draw looks the much more appealing option.
