Desportivo Aves: After 1 draw and 3 losses, the home team is holding the 17th position. Aves has won 1 point so far. They have shown poor performance since they have conceded goals in all of the last 4 matches, 7 goals in total. Also, they have managed to score 2 goals so far making their offensive line one of the weakest in the Primeira Liga. They are missing some players for this match. Petrolina is injured, while Amilton and Derley are not allowed to play.
Belenenses: On the other side, the away team is holding the 13th position in the league. Belenenses has won 4 points won, after 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses. They have exactly the same goal difference 2/7 as their opponent. Hence, defensive consistency is not their best feature. However, they were unfortunate enough to play against strong Benfica in the 2nd round and have conceded 5 goals in the match. For today’s game, their coach won’t count on Sasso, punished, as well as Fredy, players who are recovering from injury.
Conclusion: With a home team yet to win in Primeira Liga and Belenenses’ poor performance as guests, that this should be very balanced match with few dangerous attacks. As both teams have the competence at the same low level, especially on the offensive line, a low scoring match is expected. In addition, both teams must act cautiously as they’re going through a very bad start of the season.
