Vitoria Guimaraes Team News
In recent times, Vitoria Guimaraes has consistently been placed between the fifth and seventh positions in the Portuguese championship standings. Their sixth-place finish last year allowed them to qualify for the Conference League. Unfortunately, their European journey came to an early end in the second round of qualifications, where they were defeated by Celje from Slovenia.
Since the change of coach in October, Vitoria Guimaraes has made significant progress, currently holding the fifth position in the Portuguese league with 30 points, trailing just three points behind fourth-placed Braga and five points behind third-placed Porto.
Vitoria Guimaraes is currently enjoying an impressive run of six undefeated matches in all competitions, including a significant 3-2 victory against the league leaders Sporting in front of their fans. Their performances at home have been particularly convincing, with five victories in the last six encounters.
Penafiel Team News
On the other hand, Penafiel is playing its ninth consecutive season in the Portuguese second league. Despite finishing in 12th place last year, they were only four points away from the relegation play-offs, making their position seem better than it actually was. During this season, Penafiel has struggled, but a recent upturn in form with seven points in the last three matches has lifted them to the 14th position, just one point clear of the relegation danger zone.
With seven points from the last three games, Penafiel appears to be in a relatively favorable position when looking at the statistics in more detail. It’s important to note that six of these seven points were earned at home. On away matches, Penafiel performs poorly and currently holds the title of the weakest away team in the league. In the last ten matches away from their home stadium, they have managed to secure only one victory.
