An interesting game in perspective, between two teams that can still go to Portugal – Segunda Liga because they are only a few points away from the first places. Académica plays at home and is slightly favorite to win the game. Académica in the last six games scored thirteen points, scored eleven goals and conceded just four goals. Mafra in the last six games scored twelve points, scored nine goals and conceded four goals.
Académica is in one of the best moments of the season and playing at home they will do everything to win the game and get closer to the first places. Académica in the last six games has had better results than Mafra and has also played better than the visiting team. That is, it has produced more goal scoring opportunities and has suffered fewer goal chances than Mafra in the last six games. If Académica wins the game it is only one point away from Mafra. Possible eleven: Mika, Mike, Arghus, Silvério, Francisco Moura, Ricardo Dias, Leandro Silva, João Mendes, Filipe Chaby, Traquina, and Derick Lacerda. Captain Zé Castro is in doubt and Marcos Paulo will not play due to punishment.
Mafra, despite playing worse and having worse results than Académica in the last six games, the visiting team, in general, was better than the home team in terms of results and sports performance. And so it has four more points than the home team. Mafra is undoubtedly the sensation team and the big surprise of this season’s Portugal – Segunda Liga. At an individual and collective level, I consider Mafra to be superior to Academica. Mafra is a strong team in their offensive process, both in terms of organized attack and counter attack. In my opinion the weak point of the team is the defensive process in general. Possible eleven: Godinho, Rúben Freitas, Juary, João Miguel, Joel, João Tavares, Júnior Franco, Zé Tiago, Lucas, Nuno Rodrigues and Ayongo. The only casualty is Diego Medeiros.
I predict a balanced game and that’s why I see value at Mafra’s +0.5. If you also want to place your bet on Duarte’s winning prediction, sign up for the best betting platform and enjoy the highest odds on BET-IBC’s VIP IBC.
