Feirense vs Porto
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 10 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira).
Porto dropped down to second place after falling 1-2 at home to Benfica in one of the most important fixtures of the season last weekend. Azuis e Brancos will thus be highly motivated to return to winning ways in the last fixture of Sunday’s Primeira Liga schedule.
They will like the idea of facing the rock-bottomed Feirense just at this moment when they desperately need a three-pointer to keep the pressure on Benfica before their respective fixture on Monday. Porto managed to regain the confidence just three days after the defeat to the Eagles as they saw off Roma 3-1 after extra-time to advance into the Champions League quarter-final.
Moussa Marega returned after the lengthy injury producing a stellar display which basically guided Sergio Conceicao’s men to a massive victory over Italian outfit.
Feirense vs Porto: Head-to-head
Porto dominated the head to head match-up winning six, drawing three and losing one of ten encounters against Azuis da Feira.
The Dragons won each of last three meetings with Feirense and they conceded only three goals in oast six H2H affairs.
This term’s clash saw a 2-0 victory for the Dragons at Dragao.
Feirense vs Porto: Prediction
Feirense have one foot in Segunda Liga. They clearly revealed the lack of quality to stay competitive in the top flight football in recent weeks. The hosts lost six on the bounce in the league shipping at least three goals in all of past four affairs.
Azuis da Feira lost last two away fixtures with the identical 4-0 scoreline against the likes of Nacional (who previously lost 10 at Benfica) and Belenenses. They fell 1-3 in the previous home fixture against Moreirense.
This will be a one-way street for the visitors from the very start and we expect Porto to ease their way to a comprehensive victory against such struggling counterparts.
