On May 5, Estadio Pina Manique (Lisbon) will host the match of the 31st round of the Liga Portugal, in which Casa Pia will compete with Portimonense. The battle will start at 21:15 CET.
The club is located in Lisbon and has been naturally in the shadow of its more status neighbours. Suffice it to say that, having been promoted to the Primeira at the end of the previous season, it was able to return there for the first time since 1939. Moreover, the newcomer spent the first lap in a pretty decent way – it even hinted at the chances to compete for the European competitions. Still, it seems that the strength and motivation had finally disappeared by the spring. April brought only one point due to a draw in the match against Rio Ave and the defeats made not only by Sporting and Braga, but also by Vizela. The previous round is characterized by another misfire – the team lost with a 0-1 score to Chaves, which resulted in the newcomer’s move to the bottom of the current standings.
The team, taking into account its entire history, appeared in the European competition only once – that success finished in the first round of qualification. Generally speaking, this club has not played much in the Primeira. The fact that it has been staying in the elite division of the country since 2017 can be considered a serious success. The previous draw resulted in the 13th place. “The Black and Whites” are holding approximately at the same level in the current season – they are below the so-called “equator” of the table, but the distance from the relegation zone is more than comfortable. However, there has been a series of 5 defeats in a row since the end of February. Then it achieved a 2-2 draw in the match with Rio Ave, and after that, albeit minimally, with a 1-0 score, the team won the battles against Estoril and Gil Vicente. There was a match with the ambitious Braga last Saturday – it resulted in a devastating 1-4 defeat. The guests had already conceded three goals by the 38th minute of the game.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs played their first head-to-head match last December. That away battle brought a 2-1 victory for Casa Pia.
Bookmakers believe that Casa Pia has good chances to win, but it has not performed well for a long time. At the same time, the guests are quite good. Thus, we recommend betting that Portimonense will not lose (odd: 1.727).
