Feirense vs Pacos de Ferreira
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Thursday, 22nd December 2016
Kick-off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Estádio Marcolino de Castro.

The promoted club Feirense had hardly adjusted to the life in the Portuguese Liga as we approach the first half of the season. They are deeply immersed in a relegation battle after finding themselves at 17th position in the league table.

Feirense’s away defeat to Maritimo on matchday 14 is their 5th defeat in a row. They have only registered 3 wins this season, which all came inside the first 5 matchdays of the season. So they are currently without a win since September which stretches to a long 9 matches.

Pacos de Ferreira have registered only one win more than Feirense. They are 12th in the league table with a 15 point distance from their Thursday’s opposition. Ferreira defeated Belenenses 1-0 at home to pick their second win in three matches, which is half the number of wins they have earned in the first 11 matches of the seasons. The two recent wins have come at home, which left them on a 4 match losing streak away from home. They also failed to score in the last three away games.
