Competition: Liga Portugal 2

Market: Academico Viseu double chance

Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on their recent purple patch on New Year’s Eve, Academico Viseu will make the trip to Penafiel on Saturday morning.

Starting with the hosts, although Penafiel might find themselves holding a commanding eight-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, they are in the midst of what has been an extended struggle. While Filo’s side might have been last seen on December 17th claiming a 1-1 draw away at Estrela, the Reds have managed to muster just a single win from any of their last nine straight contests across all formats. With that run stemming all the way back to October 8th, the former Feirense boss has also seen his downbeat squad gain a reputation for their rather glaring issues on home soil. Last seen in front of their own supporters getting hit with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Moreirense, it should be highlighted that Penafiel have now lost each of their previous four consecutive showdowns at the Estadio Municipal.

As for the visitors, while Penafiel might be in the midst of an extended rut, the mood in Academico Viseu’s camp should be at a real high. Last seen on December 20th when putting in a stellar League Cup display as they picked up a 2-1 victory at home against Boavista, Jorge Costa’s men could even have their sights set on mounting a promotion charge in 2023. Winning each of their last three matchups across all formats and without a single defeat to their name since way back on September 12th, the Blacks have also continued on a real free-scoring run. With their recent purple patch underlined by a 4-1 romp against Tondela earlier in the month, the Viseu-based outfit should be confident of laying down another marker here. Losing just one of their last six meetings against Saturday’s opponents, we’re backing an away double chance.

Bet: Academico Viseu double chance against Penafiel 1/2 for Saturday’s Liga Portugal 2 matchup @ 888sport
