FC Penafiel will welcome Vilafranquense to Estádio Municipal 25 de Abril for a matchday 18 fixture in Portugal LigaPro. The last meeting on 9th August 2021 ended in a FC Penafiel 1-0 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. FC Penafiel has won 1 match, and Vilafranquense triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 1.40 goals, while both teams score 40% of the time.
Vilafranquense's previous game in the competition versus CD Trofense ended in an away 3-1 win. Although Vilafranquense countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Vilafranquense was much better in the second half and scored in the 16th, 40th and 70th minute.
Since the start of the season, FC Penafiel is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 10 games on home soil. Penafidelenses's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 40% of home games.
Vilafranquense has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Vilafranquense has collected 1.22 points on average per away game, compared to 1.10 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Vilafranquense kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Rubro-Negros is currently unbeaten at home in two games. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.
Vilafranquense is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Rubro-Negros.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. FC Penafiel wins on average 1.60 points per home game, compared to 1.22 points per away game for Vilafranquense. My prediction is FC Penafiel to win.
