Varzim will welcome CD Nacional to Estádio Varzim Sport Club for a matchday 21 fixture in Portugal LigaPro. The last meeting on 28th August 2021 ended in a CD Nacional 2-1 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. Varzim has won 0 matches, and CD Nacional triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.20 goals, while both teams score 60% of the time.
Varzim’s latest fixture against GD Chaves ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Alvi-Negros (White and Blacks). The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
CD Nacional’s recent game against Porto II ended in a home 1-0 win. Os Alvinegros dominated the game and deserved the win. CD Nacional put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 29th minute.
Since the start of the season, Varzim is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 8 games on home soil. Although Varzim 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 13% home clean sheets.
CD Nacional has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. CD Nacional wins 1.20 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. CD Nacional kept a clean sheet in just 10% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Alvi-Negros (White and Blacks) has won just 25% of home games. On average they score 0.88 goals and concede 1.88 per game. CD Nacional is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Varzim wins on average 0.88 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against CD Nacional. My prediction is CD Nacional to win.
