Farense vs Estrela: Top Free Betting Tips
Farense's downfall continues in 2022. The team got relegated from the elite last season and is one of the sides that are fighting for their place in Liga 2 this season. Estrela, on the other side, were in the promotion fight but several consecutive losses in November and December put the team quite far back from the leaders.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
Matches between teams from the opposide sides of the table are often unexpected. We often see surprising wins for the weaker team and although we do not expect this to happen here, we expect Farense to score in this match. Estela are not a bad team overall but they are among those that have conceded the most goals on the road this season. The previous match between these two teams ended in a 3:1 win for Estrela. We expect that both sides will score at least once in this match as well.
Double Chance – Draw or Estrela
Surprisingly, Farense are big favorites according to bookmakers. And this is surprising because the hosts are on a 3-game losing streak while Estrela lost just one of their last 5 league games. And in most cases, they won with a comfortable difference of at least two goals. Estrela are far from the worst away teams in the league – they lost just 2 of their 9 games on the road this season. At the same time, Farense won just one of their 9 home games. It will be a complete surprise to see them snatch the three points against one of the teams at the best current form in the league.
Alternative Corners – Under 12
We have two teams that have not been taking too many corners throughout the season. It is a fact, however, that Farense have had a considerable number in their home games this season – 6.88 corners on average at home per game. On the other side, Estrela have been pretty inactive in this aspect of the game in their games on the road – just 3.78 corners on average. The previous match between these teams ended with 11 corners but we expect less from this second fixture.
