Match Preview

  • Santa Clara are unbeaten in three Primeira Liga (LPFP) matches (W1, D2) following their 2-2 draw with Vitória Setúbal (June 10). Yet to win a league game by more than two goals this term, they have not kept a clean sheet for five LPFP fixtures.
  • It has been all or nothing for them since October, with no draw in eight home league games (W3, L5). Interestingly, they have conceded exactly once in each of their last four halves as hosts in LPFP, and are unbeaten in 75% of home league matches entered as favourites this term (W4, D2, L2).
  • Unbeaten since the restart (W1, D1), Portimonense often finish games strongly, having scored nine out of 19 league goals this term after 60 minutes. Away from home though, they are winless in 12 league matches (D4, L8) including five straight defeats most recently, four of which featured over 2.5 goals.
  • The half-time and full-time outcomes have been the same in three of Portimonense’s last four competitive visits to Santa Clara. Meanwhile, Portimonense have netted before the 50-minute mark in each of their last three visits to Estádio de São Miguel.
  • Players to watch: Netting in four league fixtures this term (scoring Santa Clara’s opener on each occasion), Thiago Santana scored his fourth goal in three games since resumption with a goal against Setúbal.
  • All five of Dener’s league strikes for Portimonense this season have been his side’s first goal of the game, with four of them coming after half-time.
  • Stat attack: No team has scored fewer LPFP goals in the opening 30 minutes this term than Santa Clara (three).
  • Since resumption, Santa Clara have received on average 3.00 yellow cards per game.
  • Portimonense are yet to score in both halves of a league game away from home this term.
