Chaves-Vitória de Guimarães-12.01.2018

THE GAME – LEAVE US (18th Day)

The 2nd round of the Liga NOS starts in Chaves with a game between two candidates to the European places, but that are very far from such objectives. Desportivo de Chaves continues to “get stuck” in the home games, and sometimes it even seems to have two teams, one that plays as a visitor and another in the Municipal Stadium of Chaves. This inconsistency has marked the Flavian era. The team plays an attractive football, in possession, and with discretion, but then it fails in the finalization and has been vulnerable in the defense. That is, one can see the idea of Luís Castro, it is noted that there are players who can match, but it is a way of playing that takes your time to be automated. In home games, the team takes more control of the game and this leads to more exposure to the opponents counterattacks and this has cost points! Receives the Vitória de Guimarães that has some similarities with the Sports of Chaves. Not in the way of playing, but in constant oscillation, between good games and other very suffering! That is why in this 18th round one of these teams has the opportunity to reverse this situation, but in a game that promises so much balance, which team will come out with the 3 points?


Desportivo de Chaves scored again for the third consecutive game at home! After Rio Ave (1-1), Aves (1-1) and Boavista (0-0).

In fact he is only the 12th best team to play at home, with only 10 points added. You contract with the 5th place in the teams that were the best as visitors!

Thus, Chaves is ranked 7th, with 23 points as Vitória de Guimarães is ranked 8th!

The Chaves only in 25% of the games at home, was left with its inviolable goal. something that Vitoria de Guimarães managed only 22% of their games as a visitor!


This defensive inconsistency in both formations is undoubtedly a key point for this game. The Desportivo de Chaves will again take on the game, even because this is “thank you” after 3 games without any win, at home. Vitória de Guimarães will play as they feel comfortable, against attack, and with Rafinha, Héldon and Rafael Martins, the goal will be very close! The Deportivo de Chaves usually give a lot of space, in the games at home and will most likely be the victorious goal! The victory coming to the goal, we can see, once again a game in Municipal de Chaves, with the local team running behind the injury, and with the difficulties of finalization that has had, value is a double chance for visitors. Guimarães’s win does not lose.
