Feirense vs Moreirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.30 UK/ 16.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira).
Two teams going through contrasting fortunes take on each other. Maybe ‘take on’ is not the right phrase. Feirense is more like being dragged to the arena. They have had enough, and any more of this misery is clearly cruelty.
The team is at the bottom-most of league standings and is eight points away from any semblance of safety. They are, without doubt, the top favorite to get the boot to the lower division come this summer.
Moreirense is just a spot below that allows entry into the Europa League. But seven points lie in front of them before they can make a pass at the coveted position. With just 12 more rounds remaining in the competition, the team has to make use of all their available game time and amass as many points as possible.

Expect an early goal in the tie.
