This game will be behind closed doors, thus no fans present, neither from Vilafranquense nor from Académica side. I believe it could have a negative effect on the home team. First match in Pro League for new coach of Academica João Carlos Pereira.
Vilafranquense have been recovering in recent games, especially in terms of results. The home team has two wins and two losses at their stadium but I think without their supporters this team will not be as strong and this could benefit the Académica side. The latest news from Vilafranquense points to the next two home games behind closed doors and without fans. I consider Vilafranquense to be one of the worst teams in the league. Possible starting line-up: Maringa, Tennis Martins, Diogo Izata, Kassio, Tarcisio Martins, Ulysses Oliveira, Filipe Oliveira, Marco Grilo, Korzun, Pepo and João Viera.
Academica is a historic team in Portuguese football as earlier mentioned and their aim is to get promoted into the top flight. However, the season is going very badly for them and they are near divisive descent places. Academica is one of the teams that have the greatest potentials in the Liga Pro, with great players but goals are not showing up. It is the team that creates the most goal situations but is not being able to add the finishing touch. In my opinion, it is just not probable for results to improve. Their defensive line is one of the best teams in the league. The new Académica coach João Carlos Pereira’s debut could have a positive impact on the team’s performance and I believe that winning this game could give great motivation for the future and could be a turning point. Possible starting line-up: Mika, Mike, Ze Castro, Silvério, Mauro Cerqueira, Leandro Silva, Ricardo Dias, Joao Mendes, Barnes Osei, Ki and Derick Lacerda.
I see value on the Academica side. If you want to also bet with the highest odds and limits for this game, you need to open an account with the best betting software, VIP-IBC so as to secure your winnings!
