Porto vs. Tondela Betting Tips
Porto will host rock-bottomed Tondela for their Matchday 22 clash on Friday, hoping to bag easy home points and extend their amazing streak in front of the home fans. They have earned ten wins and one draw (1-1 to Benfica) in their 11 league matches at home this season and there’s little about the visitors to suggest they will be able to deny Porto a 6th straight win on the day (which can be backed at 1/8 with William Hill
Tondela have struggled for points throughout the season and currently sit in the relegation zone with just 14 points earned in 21 games played. While they have earned a win over Chaves (2-0) and a draw at Belenenses (0-0), joining the battle to escape relegation, they suffered a disappointing loss to Feirense (0-1) in their last outing and just don’t look as confident.
With the visitors yet to earn an away win this term, they’ve bagged just six goals in 11 games on the road and it doesn’t seem they’ll have much on one of the league’s best defending sides. Dragoes have conceded just 11 goals in 21 league matches, and we’ll now back them to keep a 13th clean sheet this season at 4/9 with Ladbrokes.
With manager Nuno Espirito Santo possibly resting some of his main stars ahead of their Champions League clash against Juventus, we could see a somewhat dented attacking form on their part as well. Porto have bagged no more than two goals in all of their last four outings and going for Under 2.5 goals FT does seem very well worth taking a shot at 7/5 with bet365
Porto vs. Tondela Stats
Interestingly, the teams have met twice in 2016 and Tondela have been able to earn a narrow away win (0-1) in April and a goalless home draw (0-0) in September! While we don’t believe they can take anything from the fixture this time around, this could prove to be a narrow contest as well.
A 2-0 home win seems the best pick in the correct score market (coming at 9/2 with BetVictor
), as Porto look highly motivated and ready to take revenge for the 2016 mishaps against the struggling rivals.
