- P. Ferreira beat Tondela 1-0 in the pairs reverse league fixture in November.
- Tondela have only won one of their last six league games.
- P. Ferreira have won four of their last six league games.
- Both teams have scored in four of the duo’s last six meetings in all competitions.
The visitors have hit form at just the right time
Tondela slipped to a 2-0 defeat away at Sporting last week and now sit 5th from bottom in the Primeira Liga table. Pacos Ferreira claimed a huge 3pts against fellow strugglers Belenenses courtesy of a 2-1 final scoreline and are now just a point behind Tondela but remain in the bottom three.
When these two sides last locked horns back in November both sides had a man sent-off in the second half and a solitary strike from Pedrinho in the 15th minute earned Pacos Ferreira a narrow home win. Three of the last five meetings between these two clubs have ended all square and we’re expecting another close and competitive 90-minutes on Wednesday night.
Tondela have struggled for results in their own backyard
Our prediction for a double chance bet in favour of P. Ferreria is backed up by the form of both clubs heading into Wednesday’s clash. Tondela have only managed to win one of their last six league games and that was against the divisions worst club Aves, while P. Ferreira have won four of their last six matches, which includes two of their last three away games.
The momentum appears to be with the visitors this weekend but the visitors have only won three times on the road which is why the double chance bet makes much more than backing an outright away win. Tondela have only won twice at home all season but have drawn five of those 13 matches and with stalemates being common between these two clubs in recent season, a draw could be on the cards this Wednesday.
We’re expecting a close and competitive 90-minutes at the Estádio João Cardoso
In terms of a final scoreline, we have predicted that P. Ferreira will pinch a 2-1 win. Five of the visitors’ last six league games have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals, while both teams have also scored in four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs. Tondela have conceded exactly two goals in three of their last six matches and all of those games have ended in defeat, while P. Ferreira have scored two or more goals in four of their last six matches and have won on each occasion.
