The last match of the round in the Portuguese Liga 2 is between two teams from the bottom half of the table – Leixoes and Academica. As expected, this isn't the most attractive matchup but teams from the bottom often play the most entertaining games.
Academica vs Leixoes: Top Free Betting Tips
Academica have been terrible – there is no other words to explain their season with 8 points after 18 games. Their survival seems impossible at this point but this doesn't mean that they will not give their best.
Total Goals – Over 2.5
We have two completely different teams here. Firstly, Academica are really levels below anyone else in the league. At the same time, they are among the teams with the most goals and over 2.5 games this season – 11/18 and 7/9 at home, which is the second-hishgest. They have had an average of 2.9 goals in their home games. On the other side, however, we have Leixoes, which are the team with the fewest over 2.5 games away from home in the league. They have had just 17 goals in 9 outings, 2 out 7 ended with more than 2 goals and the average goals per game is 1.9.
Match Result – Draw
Even though they are the absolute worst team, Academica are the favorite here according to bookmakers. But we do not see how they will win even against an average team like Leixoes. We see this match as a likely draw as both teams are not particularly good and their forms are not the best. Leixoes won 2 of their 9 visits this season while Academica had one win in 9 and three additional draws. The head-to-head games are in favor of Academica and the only time they ever lost to Leixoes was earlier this season.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Both sides will be motivated for a good result and we expect a lot of offensive efforts that could lead to corners. After all, none of these teams is good upfront, so we expect a lot of missed chances and extra corners. Other than that, the teams have taken a considerable number of corners this season despite their poor performances – both have an average of 5.00 corners per game.
