The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Vilafranquense so far with only 10 points returning home. The records show 2-4-4 (win-draw-lose).

Vilafranquense are the visiting side once again, their previous game being the 1-1 draw at Cova Piedade (placed 12th). It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Feirense wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.

A new game in only four days for Vilafranquense, the Segunda Liga home match versus Porto II. Busy days.
