Porto vs Feirense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 28 October 2018
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao (Porto).
Porto successfully rebounded from a disappointing 1-0 loss to Benfica in the previous round’s Primeira Liga derby at Estadio da Luz. The reigning champions demolished lower-division side Vila Real 0-6 on the road in the third round of Taca da Portugal last Friday. They went on to bag a much more important 1-3 victory over Russian Lokomotiv Moscow in the third round of Champions League.
The victory in the Russian capital catapulted Azuis e Brancos right at the top of the Group D standings as Sergio Conceicao’s side now have seven points from three UCL affairs and are very close to book a spot in the knockout phase of the elite competition.
Porto sit third in the domestic league after the mentioned defeat to Benfica, but they will surely come into this in the highest of spirits.
Porto vs Feirense: Head-to-head
Porto dominate d this match-up with five wins, three draws and a single defeat in nine meetings with Azuis da Feira so far.
Azuis e Brancos earned the domestic double over Feirense via two separate 2-1 victories in the previous term of Primeira Liga.
It is interesting to note that three of last four head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Porto vs Feirense: Prediction
Feirense dropped down to 9th place in the league ladder after a dreadful period which saw them fail to find the back of the net in any of last four league games. Believe it or not, they only scored four and conceded three (the weakest attacking line and the best defensive line in the entire league) in seven matches so far.
Nuno Santos’ troops could see their poor streak continued here at Estadio Do Dragao given they will be up against highly-motivated defending champions. Porto to keep a clean sheet thus looks to be the best of betting options. You can back it at the odds of 1.53.
