Feirense vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019
Kick-off at 21.15 UK/ 22.15 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira).
The Conquerors really have to start doing some conquering or else they risk all the goodwill they have made for themselves early in the season to go for waste. After a fantastic run that saw them race towards the top tier of the league table, the new year really let them down. Four losses in the last five match-days would be too much for any team to handle, let alone a team with high ambitions.
But there’s light at the end of the tunnel. The team is pitted against one of the worst squads in the entire competition, and to be honest, an opportunity like this would be seldom granted to them. Billas last recorded a league win back in August.
If Luis Castro’s men are to have a reversal of fortunes this season, the time to act is now.

Feirense vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction
The Conquerors were one of the best teams in Portugal at the beginning of the season, and also for the first phase of the season. But the last few match-days saw them struggling to register good results. Likely, their league standing has suffered, and so has their ambitions for the European spots.
But, in this tie, they have a chance to get back into their track. The team is going against Fogaceiros who have been winless at home, in nine of their last ten matches. The sole win came in the League Cup. In overall fixtures, they have been winless in the last eleven straight attempts, and the streak is still ongoing. There’s little scope for the home crowd to have something to cheer about this week.
Os Vimaranenses cannot afford another misfiring and that too against a team from the relegation zone. They will want the win at any cost. Here’s where the huge experience the team has at hand will come useful. They will close down their defense against the weak attack of the hosts and look for just the winner. A single goal would suffice, and as of now, they are not in a state to go after big scores.
A 0-1 win for the visitors is the most probable outcome.
