Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Casa Pia will be aiming to stay in top five when they take on Santa Clara in the Primeira Liga round 18. Casa Pia failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Estoril and Gil Vicente, but they are still seen as favourites to beat Santa Clara on home soil. Experienced forward Rafael Martins should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in the last league match, while Leo Natel has yet to overcome an ACL problem.
Meanwhile, the visitors failed to upset league leaders Benfica (0-3) at the weekend, with the team extending their goalless run to four games. Since Casa Pia are eager to stay in the Conference League race, home win should definitely be considered. Speaking of the away side, defender Pierre Sagna is back from suspension, while Ricardinho is likely to replace Matheus Nunes in the starting XI.
