Jesús Ramírez (20') scored for Nacional.
At least three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the last 6 meetings where União Leiria have participated. Opposition teams scored 11 of them in this period whereas União Leiria bagged a total of 15.

Team News: União Leiria
The União Leiria manager has no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match with a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Leixões
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there is just the lone fitness problem for the Leixões manager Manuel Cajuda to contend with. Mozino (Broken fibula) won’t be playing here.
We feel that in this game, União Leiria have it within them to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
Conversely, Leixões are also probably going to find it difficult to get a goal of their own - but, we do see them converting at least once here.
We’re therefore anticipating a 3-1 winning score for União Leiria after 90 minutes.
