All Portimonense v Chaves match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Portimonense will play in this game coming off the back of a 0-0 Primeira Liga stalemate vs Chaves.
A common theme in more recent Portimonense games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a losing one. Let’s see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
The stats don’t lie, and Chaves have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 7 goals overall. Defensively, Chaves certainly have room for improvement.
Ahead of this clash, Chaves are undefeated by Portimonense in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.
Head to head
A look at their past head to head meetings going back to 15/09/2002 shows us that Portimonense have won 2 of these and Chaves 4, with the number of drawn results being 0.
An aggregate of 12 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 6 of them for Portimonense and 6 netted by Chaves. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.
The last league contest featuring these sides was Primeira Liga match day 19 on 29/01/2019 when the final score was Portimonense 0-1 Chaves.
In that match, Portimonense managed 58% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target.
Chaves got 10 shots at goal with 5 on target. João Costinha (38') was the scorer.
The referee was André Narciso.
Team News: Portimonense
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Portimonense gaffer Paulo Sérgio to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Carlinhos (Unknown Injury) is sidelined.
It’s our opinion that Portimonense will possibly go for a 4-2-3-1 formation this time with Kosuke Nakamura, Fahd Moufi, Filipe Relvas, Pedro Henrique, Moustapha Seck, Ewerton, Paulo Estrela, Rui Gomes, Luquinha, Welinton Junior and Bryan Rochez.
Team News: Chaves
Due to a completely healthy group to choose from, the Chaves boss Vítor Campelos does not have any fitness concerns to report coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that Chaves appear most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup, going with Paulo Vitor, Joao Correia, Nelson Monte, Steven Vitoria, Bruno Langa, Joao Mendes, Guima, Bernardo Sousa, Joao Teixeira, Juninho and Hector Hernandez.
In our opinion, Chaves will need things to go their way to see themselves scoring against this Portimonense side who we think will likely emerge victorious.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 1-0 winning score for Portimonense when the referee blows for full-time.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
