Pacos v Santa Clara Match preview

The hosts have a new manager at the dugout following the sacking of Jorge Simao who had guided the team to fifth place last season. His replacement, Cesar Peixoto had a great start to his career with a well-deserved win over Tondela. That win ended a run of 10 games without a win. Pacos are now 11th in the league standings and need to continue winning to add more distance between them and teams fighting relegation.

The visitors managed a 1-0 win over Vitoria last time out. Os Acoreasnos were on a four game winless run before that win. They made a poor start to the campaign which is why they’re currently battling to move away from the relegation spot.
