Our prediction for this Portugal League Cup match:
Tondela play host to Estoril at their Estadio Joao Cardoso in the opening match of the Taca da Liga Group H. Tondela are eyeing a quick return to Primeira Liga, but they occupy 10th position in Liga Portugal 2 ahead of the visit of Estoril. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Cuba, Fonseca, and Lacava should be recalled to the starting line-up.
Os Canarinhos, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Santa Clara. Estoril have been totally out of form of late, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league fixtures, and that is the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. Midfielder Francisco Geraldes returns to the starting XI after missing the last league game through suspension.
