Santa Clara vs Portimonense Prediction 21.02.2022

Santa Clara will welcome Portimonense to Estádio de São Miguel for a matchday 23 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 17th September 2021 ended in a Portimonense 2-1 win. Both sides have met seventeen times in the most recent seasons. Santa Clara has won 6 matches, and Portimonense triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 2.12 goals, while both teams score 59% of the time.

Santa Clara’s latest fixture against Benfica ended in an away 2-1 loss. I expected more from Santa Clara. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Santa Clara set the tone early and scored in the 20 minute.

Portimonense’s recent game against Boavista FC ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points. Portimonense put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 18th minute.

Since the start of the season, Santa Clara is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 11 games on home soil. Although Santa Clara is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 18% home clean sheets.

Portimonense has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Portimonense has collected 1.70 points on average per away game, compared to 0.83 at home.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Portimonense.
