Chaves vs Tondela – Liga NOS: Desportivo de Chaves’ awakening is excellent news…
For their fans but it, also, was expected, considering the quality they have on their roster and the quality of their manager Luís Castro’s work.
Despite their bad start to the season, they now seem to be back on track, on the way to accomplishing the objectives that were defined.
On this 8th round they host Tondela who arrives here after 3 less positive results, although that also has to do with the opponents they faced.
A draw at home, against Paços de Ferreira, wasn’t the best result but the losses against Sporting and Braga were, somewhat, already expected.
For this match on Friday, Desportivo de Chaves will want to keep their winning streak, after 2 wins where they didn’t concede a single goal.
They trounced Moreirense 3-0 and then travelled to Estoril, where Luís Castro’s team won 2-0 on a hard-fought win.
Tondela has conceded on their last 3, with their only win being against Moreirense, curiously ending 3-0 as well.
Having to deal with a roster heavily affected by injuries, especially on the defensive sector, the visitors have got to have some extra caution on this match.
On the side of Chaves their usual starts are available to help them get another win.
The team should approach this match with regained confidence, hoping that, with the win, they are able to climb some spots on the league table, since their 11th place doesn’t really reflect their true quality.
Chaves vs Tondela – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Pepa’s Tondela will keep trying to play good football, which is not always an easy task for those who don’t have the same resources as other teams.
Still, this side’s ability to surprise Chaves is reduced due to their latest results.
