Moreirense to beat Olhanense
Normally I would not touch the portuguese league cup, but here is a very attractive bet giving the circumstances around the match, and odds are dropping everywhere.
It is the last round of the group stage, and here it is clear that Olhanense is out of the tournament, while Moreirense has the opportunity to advance with a victory.On motivation alone it should be a good bet, but it gets even better when you look at Olhanenses problems before this match.
Babanco, David Silva and Djaniny is off to the African championships, while Ivanildo, Fernando Alexandre, Maurício, Luís Filipe and Abdi are all injured. With Rui Duarte and Vasco Fernandes suspended, they are left with only 11 fit players for the match, two of them are goalkeepers, and because of that they have to get four players up from their youth team. A youth team who recently lost 0-10 (!) against Benficas youth team.
In addition they do not have a coach since Sergio Conceicao yesterday left the club to take the Hungarian side Videoton, so it's hardly goes as planned in Olhanense at the moment.
Moreirense has not had a great season in the league, where they are last in the table, but has donea decent job in the league cup. Unlike Olhanense, they can come with their strongest possible squad, as they will play their chance of reaching the semi-finals of the tournament. They has organized an ambitious stay in Algarve, where they took down already Tuesday, playing League Cup match tonight, and then will be in Algarve to prepare for this weekend's match against Vitoria Setubal.
There are doubt about two regulars Concalves and Anilton, but it can not change the fact that Moreirense actually playing excellent football at the moment. Narrow 0-1 defeats away against both Porto and Braga, and they ends 2012 with playing 1-1 against Benfica in the League Cup in a match where Benfica comes with their strongest squad like Cardozo, Garay, Salvio and others, but first equalized in the 92nd minute.
It should give a super bet on Moreirense.
