Tip Reasoning

  • At least three goals have been scored in five of the last six Santa Clara home league games.
  • At least three goals have been scored in three of the last six Portimonense away games.
  • At least three goals have been scored in two of the last three head-to-head meetings between the clubs.

Santa Clara have attacking power to pip Portimonense 

Portimonense’s fading hopes of bringing European football to the Algarve could be further hit when they travel to the Azores to take on an in-form Santa Clara side on Monday. The hosts have won four and drawn one of their last five at Estádio de São Miguel and gave the mighty Benfica a big scare at the Luz last weekend.

Prior to that 2-1 defeat, Santa Clara had notched two goals or more in five consecutive league games and their confidence is unlikely to have been dented too much in Lisbon. Mario Silva was without two important attacking midfielders for that clash and will surely welcome Cryzan and Lincoln straight back into the line-up after suspension.

The visitors from Portimao have fared much better on their travels than at home this season and potentially spring a surprise at 3/1. But the away-day aptitude that saw Portimonense win five of their first seven league road games seems to have deserted them during a sequence of two defeats and a draw in their subsequent three.

Stats point to prospect of several goals

That leaves as uncertain as the oddsmakers about their prospects of victory on Monday, but there has been some sustained consistency from them in terms of scoring goals. Paulo Sergio’s side have hit the back of the net in eight of their ten aways, including both visits to the Lisbon big boys, so we feel confident in their scoring prowess for this one.

At least three goals have been scored in five of the last six Santa Clara home league games and, although not as conclusive, in three of the last six Portimonense away games. The 5/4 on offer about over 2.5 goals being scored looks a good way in and potentially more profitable than backing the hosts at around evens.

We still feel as though Santa Clara, with only one home slip-up since early December, are more likely winners and prefer a wager on 2-1 to the hosts in correct score betting.
