Santa Clara form and stats

Santa's mission in Taça De Portugal last season failed in the quarter-finals.

The visitors are W0-D1-L3 on the road this term. That's in the Primeira Liga.

It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Vizela in their previous outing. The Primeira Liga match ended in a draw 1-1. As mentioned above, Santa Clara drew the match against Vizela. Manager D. Lopes Ramos brought on Jean Patric to rescue the draw from a losing position and it worked. Midfielder Hidemasa Morita was the best performer of that match, with a rating of 7.81. Morita hit two key passes, dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times and had 50 successful passes (of 61 total).

Preceding that match was the 1-1 draw at home vs Sporting Braga.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Santa Clara's away games in the league this season with only 2 goals from 4 matches. The Santa manager D. Lopes Ramos has some worries about the defense as 8 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the preceeding three meetings involving these two squads are: zero wins for Leiria, one draw and two wins for Santa Clara. Over 2,5 goals: zero times; under 2,5 goals: three games.
