In this 4th matchday we will have a duel between two sides who will fight to avoid relegation, and I expect a close match.
Regarding the hosts, they are coming off a 3-0 loss at FC Porto’s Estádio do Dragão, in a match between two teams of clearly different levels.
On the 2 previous matches, the team was able to get 2 points, as a result of draws at Setúbal and at home against Feirense,
Which are results that shouldn’t embarrass this team, who lost some of their best players, such as Rebocho, Cauê, Roberto, Boateng and Makaridze. They also can’t count with Dramé yet, who is out with an injury.
From Tondela’s side, the team has only 1 point so far, obtained in the 1st matchday. Then they suffered 2 losses at home, against Porto and Estoril.
In this match against Estoril the team was able to put on a good reply, but it was too late, as they were only able to reduce from 3-0 to 3-2.
I believe this will be a match where both teams will focus essentially on closing every path to their goal. Moreirense should have more initiative but I don’t think they will be able to capitalize that into goals.
Manuel Machado is still looking for the best players to field in the attacking third, since Boateng who started in Setúbal is no longer available and Fati, who also started in that match, is also injured.
Cádiz, who started on the 2nd match didn’t convince and Peña is still adapting, although he is a good player. To summarize, the manager still has some work to do on Moreirense’s attack.
As for Tondela, they should enter with the mentality that getting a point here is a positive result.
Even more because they failed to get any points on their two matches at home, although they faced one of the title contenders in one of them.
Moreirense vs Tondela Betting Tip:
Tondela has every condition to present itself well defensively on this match.
Cláudio Ramos is one of the best goalkeepers in this league and Osório with Ricardo Costa might form a very interesting partnership in the defensive line.
With that said, I believe this will be a low-scoring match and I think betting on the under 2.5 goals is a good option.
