Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Belenenses will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Portimonense when they take on Tondela at their Estadio Nacional do Jamor on Matchday 15. O Belem are running down the blind alley, with the team scoring only six goals in total in the Primeira Liga to date. Belenenses are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Tondela, and seeing that Henrique is sidelined through suspension, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Pako Ayestaran’s charges, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Boavista. Tondela aim to move a little closer to the Europa League berth, and given Belenenses’ poor form, punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. It has to be noted that Tondela are after their first win over Belenenses since October 22, 2017.
Highlighted Player (Goncalo Silva):
Born in Barreiro, Portugal, on June 4, 1991, Goncalo Silva is a defender who plays for Belenenses. After starting his youth career at Barreirense, Goncalo Silva moved to Lousada before the start of the 2010/2011 season.

The Portuguese footballer made his Primeira Liga debut in on October 26, 2015, in a 1-0 win over Uniao Madeira. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a right-back as well. Goncalo Silva has one cap for the Portugal U21 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team. His preferred foot is right.
