Feirense vs Estoril Praia
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 22 January 2017
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro.
Feirense and Estoril are locked on 15 points and occupy 14th and 15th position in the Portuguese Primeira Liga table. Their stats are all identical with 3W-4D-10L from 17 matches so far. They are just 3 points off the automatic relegation zone and are coming on the back of some extremely poor results.
The hosts Feirense are coming on the back of a 0-0 home draw against Guimaraes last week. This left them with just 1 win in their last 12 league matches. Also, 6 of the last 8 are defeats.
While playing at home, they have managed to earn points from the last two game. The win against Ferreira and the most recent draww against Guimaraes kept them at a 2 match unbeaten run at home. However, they are one of the worst home sides in the Primeira Liga having managed just 8 points from the 9 matches so far.
Estoril on the other hand have now lost 6 straight matches, the latest by 2-1 away at Arouca. They have picked up almost equal number of points in home and away matches. But they are a team without any consistency and have troubles finding goals.
