In the last direct confrontation for this edition of the league, on 21-12-2018, Estoril won out by (0-1). Despite being a match between 5 th and 14 th of the table, it is actually a match between the 8 th best player in home matches and the 12 th best in away matches.
The home team is currently in the 5 th position of the league, with 48 points won, after 14 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Sporting Covilhã, by (1-2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Farense by (3-1). This is a team little affected by the house factor, since it conquered similar results at home and abroad. For the championship, Estoril won 22 points out of 30 possible, after 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the last 10 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent final score was 1-0 (5 out of 14 matches). Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition.

The Estoril lost in the Algarve, against the Farense, by 3-1, losing the opportunity to isolate in the third position of the Ledman LigaPro. The goals appeared only in the second half, after a first half without great scoring opportunities. The men of the house took the lead in the first minute of the second period, by Daniel Braganza, a player loaned by Sporting Lisbon, taking advantage of a lost ball in the area to score the first of the match. The estorilista team arrived at the tie through Roberto, through a corner kick. When a draw was expected, André Vieira placed the local fans in delirium, scoring two goals. With this result, Estoril is nine points away from achieving promotion. In an all-or-nothing match for the team led by Bruno Baltazar, in which losing or drawing will end the dream of moving up the division, we foresee a strong entry by Estoril, who will have to take the initiative of the match, with Kenji Gorre, Roberto and Ibrahim Koneh being the players responsible for panicking the opposing defense. In the midfield is likely to play Felipe Soares, Gonçalo Santos and Sandro Lima. The technician must have all the players suitable for the reception at UD Oliveirense.
After 8 wins, 10 draws and 11 losses, the away team is currently in the 14 th position of the league, with 34 points won. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Paços de Ferreira, by (0-1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Benfica II, by (1-2). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since it has won 12 points in away matches and 22 at their stadium, with 8 goals scored and 19 conceded at home, against 25 goals scored and 20 conceded at home. For the league, Oliveirense won 10 points out of 30 possible points, after 2 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses in the last 10 home matches. In their home matches there are some frequent results: at halftime 0-0 (8 in 14 matches) and at the end of the match 1-1 (5 in 14 matches).

In Aveiro, Oliveirense added another defeat, the eleventh this season, this time against Benfica B, 1-2. Benfica entered the match well and fourteen minutes Ivan Saponjic assisted Nuno Santos, to score the first goal of the match. In the second half, Willock increased the lead to 2-0. The best that the team of Oliveira de Azeméis managed was to reduce, twenty minutes from the end, through Ença Fati. With this defeat the Oliveirense went down to the fourteenth position, four points from the descent line. The coach Pedro Miguel should keep the team in the usual 4-4-2, which will benefit the most direct game. The two players responsible for tormenting the opposing defense are Ença Fati and Agdon. In the central zone of the field it is possible that they play Diogo Clemente, Miguel Silva, Paraiba and António Oliveira.
