São Filipe, Nov 22 (Inforpress) – The matches between Académica – Nova Era and Spartak – Botafogo, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the 5 de Julho stadium, are the highlight of the fourth round of the first division of the regional football championship, season 2019- 20.
In the first game of the round, the leader of the competition Academica, who has seven points, the same as the Vulcanico, receives the Nova Era which after two defeats, managed to collect the first three points in the last round. The Academica is a favorite to win all three points, but the Nova Era is often a tough opponent for Academica and goes into the game with the goal to score.
In the other game that stands out in this matchday, Spartak, one of the three teams that has not yet lost in this regional championship, plays against Botafogo, who after losing against Valencia on matchday two do not want to lose more points so as not to disturb the established goal of conquering the regional title that for a decade it has lost.
Considering the players, Botafogo starts as a favorite, but Spartak against the so-called “biggest” team usually have good performances and so the result can be unpredictable until the end of the game.
Another important game puts the two Mosteiros teams face to face, No Pintcha – Cutelinho, in what is considered a local derby and, regardless of their position on the leaderboard, both teams provide a good football game.
Matchday four games, Saturday in Sao Filipe (July 5): Academica – Nova Era and ABC Patim – Valencia and in Mosteiros (Francisco José Rodrigues) No Pintcha – Cutelinho, and Sunday, July 5, Vulcanico – Desportivo and Spartak – Botafogo.
