Nacional vs Feirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 16th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.30 UK/ 16.30 CET
Venue: Estádio da Madeira (Funchal).
I’m not really sure how Nacionalistas survived the last few days. Their last game ended with a 10-0 scoreline, I kid you not. Against Benfica, the team was mercilessly slaughtered. Man! I wish someone was there to give the players a hug after this ordeal.
The story doesn’t end there though. After taking on one of the best teams in the country, and too with the away handicap, the players tie their boots once more, this time at home, and get this, against the worst team in the Primeira Liga.
Billas are walking into a live minefield. Abort this mission if you can, guys. There’s really no way you are returning back with smiles on your face, after the few days that the Alvinegros have had.
Tune into this game without fail. You’re in for a treat.

Nacional vs Feirense Prediction
If ever there was a need for the Nacionalistas to win, it’s now. After the humiliation they had at the hands of Benfica, the team needs to show to the rest of the league that they are not laughing stocks like they have been made out to be. And maybe it’s fate’s way of atonement that the worst team comes visiting them at home.
On top of this setting, Azuis da Feira has never even scored a single goal against this opponent, let alone win a tie. Also, they have been the weakest team in the league both at home, and on the road. And additionally, they have recorded just two wins in the Primeira Liga all season.
Expect the hosts to win this tie at any cost. It’s a matter of honor for them. I don’t really see them messing it up, and that too against such an easy opponent. Also, they will be relentless from the get-go. Expect an early goal from the hosts, too.
