UD Leiria 1 – 0 SCU Torense: The second half begins in Leiria – C-Studio

The match will take place at the Estadio Dr. Magalhaes Pessoa, in Leiria, at 8:30pm on December 8.

Uniao de Leiria will host Torense, on Friday, at 8:30 pm, in the 13th round of the Second Division. Watch the live broadcast from the Porta10 studio, with Ana Pedro Arrescado and special guests, here on Record, starting at 8:10 p.m.

The team led by Vasco Botelho da Costa, who currently ranks 10th with 15 points, wants to respond after the 0-1 defeat it suffered in the last round at the Lanc Vilavirdense Stadium.

Les City’s lineup has a positive balance in League Two, with 20 goals scored – fourth best, behind Porto B (25), Nacional (23) and Tondela (21) – and 17 goals conceded. 11 points behind the national leader (tied with Santa Clara). At home, Uniao de Leiria’s record was balanced: they beat Benfica B 3-1 and Maritimo 4-3, drew with Tondela (2-2) and Leixues (0-0) and only lost to AVS (1-2).

Leirienses should play in the usual 3-4-3 tactical system. It should be noted that for the duel against Torrensi, Jordan van der Gaag will definitely be absent (injured). Brian Roches returns, having already been used in the Portuguese Cup win (5-0) against Atletico da Malveira.

With eight goals and one assist in 12 games this season, in all competitions (Second League, Portuguese Cup and League Cup), Brian Roches is the team’s standout star. He tops the scorers list, ahead of Leandro Antunes (6) and Jair da Silva (5). The Brazilian winger is still the second most minutes player in the team (1,402), behind the experienced centre-back Marco Paixinho, who has the most comprehensive number of 1,530 and faces the risk of being excluded for the next challenge (Penafil, away from home). If you see a yellow card.
