Penafiel go into this fixture following a 2-2 LigaPro drawn game vs Benfica B.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Penafiel have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Rubro-Negros have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 11 goals along the way.
Ahead of this clash, Penafiel haven’t won at home in the past 4 matches in the league. Their fans aren't happy.
In their last fixture, Estoril drew 1-1 in the LigaPro tie with Casa Pia.
Showing their bias toward productive encounters, goals have been celebrated 20 times in the previous 6 matches in which Estoril have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 3.33 goals for each clash. Opposition teams have hit 7 of those goals. That aside, we’ll just have to find out whether that pattern will continue on here in this match.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Estoril:
- haven't beaten Penafiel when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.

Penafiel manager Miguel Leal will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all before this match owing to a fully injury-free group available for selection.
Team News: Estoril
Owing to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Estoril boss Pedro Duarte has no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
When taking everything into account, Penafiel could find themselves struggling to get anything against this Estoril outfit who we think might score & stay on top.
We’re therefore expecting a highly competitive game with a 0-1 win for Estoril when the full-time whistle blows.
It should be a good one.
