Feirense vs Nacional
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 23 September 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira).
Feirense will have a nice opportunity to back up the fine start to the new Primeira Liga campaign and clinch another victory on Sunday afternoon when they are set to host the recently-promoted Nacional at Estadio Marcolino de Castro.
The hosts started off with back-to-back clean sheet wins over the likes of Rio Ave and Vitoria Guimaraes. They then slipped up drawing 1-1 to Boavista at home before losing narrowly 1-0 to Sporting CP away in the capital.
The story is completely opposite with the visitors who will face hard times saving the elite tier status this term. Nacional currently boast league’s weakest defensive record with 11 goals conceded in four games. They won 1 and lost 3 of so far and they’ll head into this off the back of a 3-3 draw to Vitoria Setubal in last weekend’s Taca da Liga tie.
Feirense vs Nacional: Head-to-head
Azuis da Feira only managed to see off Nacional once in seven head to head games.
The visitors picked up three victories in the process.
It is interesting to note that none of last five head to head matches saw goals at both ends.
Nacional won three and drew one of past four H2H outings.
Feirense vs Nacional: Prediction
Feirense could easily improve their poor H2H record against Nacional here as they are clear home favourites coming into the tie. Striker Edinho, who bagged two goals in four appearances so far, will fancy his chances of increasing his tally past the league’s weakest defensive line here.
You can back Edinho to score anytime at the 2.62 odds. The home win truly looks to be a baker bet at 1.95, while you can also consider backing Azuis da Feira to net two or more goals on the occasion at the odds of 2.00.
Nacional shipped seven goals in last two matches and two or more in four of past five in all competitions.
