Académica and União Madeira meet at Estádio EFAPEL, in a match for the 15th round of the Primeira Liga. The only recent head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 04‑02‑2015, and ended in a (3‑1) win by Académica.

Analysis of Académica

The home team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 10 points won, after 2 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Belenenses, by (4‑3). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Porto, by (3‑1). For the league, Académica won 8 points out of 21 possible points, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in the last 7 home matches.

They haven’t lost any of the last 4 home matches for this competition. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 8 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Académica come discouraged to this match after a 3-1 defeat against Porto. So, the "Students" are going through a bad moment, once that they only conquered 2 victories until now. The brazilian Ricardo Nascimento is the most important player in the Academica's defense. He is really good in the air play. The experienced portuguese Fernando Alexandre is the reference of the mid line, he is responsible to guide the offensive approaches of his team. However, he won't play this match by being punished, after 5 yellow cards. 

Confirmed Lineup: Pedro Trigueira, Aderlan, Iago Santos, Ricardo Nascimento, C. Oualembo, Pedro Nuno, Fernando Alexandre, Leandro Silva, N. Plange, Ivanildo, Gonçalo Paciência.
Coach: Filipe Gouveia.

Analysis of União Madeira

The away team is currently in the 15th position of the league, with 14 points won, after 3 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Benfica, by (0‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Sporting CP, by (1‑0). In the last 6 away league matches União Madeira has a record of 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 2 points out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (3 out of 6 matches). This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 14 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 2 of those 3 matches and held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in all of them. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

União da Madeira come motivated to this match after a 1-0 victory, at home, against Sporting. However, the visiting team is going through a bad moment, once that they hardly conquer a positive result. William Soares is the main reference of the visiting team, the midfielder is the responsible to occupy a more central area of the field and to adopt a defensive posture.

Confirmed Lineup: André Moreira, Joãozinho, Paulinho, Paulo Monteiro, A. Shehu, Diego Galo, William Soares, Gian Martins, Élio Martins, Amilton, Danilo Dias.
Coach: Norton de Matos.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that Académica won't win. We know that the home team will play with the support of their fans, however, they aren't going through a good moment. Conversely, they will match an opponent that is motivated after the last conquered result. So, it's foreseen that União da Madeira will get a positive result in this match.
