The closing match of the Portuguese Primeira Liga second round is going to be contested between Vitoria Guimaraes and Feirense.
Home side opened the campaign with a defeat away to Benfica, however they were very close to getting back in the game after being 3-0 down. They secured the mid-table finish last season as they finished at 9th place.
Vitoria Guimaraes have been pretty productive last season, but their defending should have been better. They have been putting decent home performances as they managed to celebrate a win nine times in front of their fans.
Feirense managed to survive in the very finish of the season as they remained one point ahead of Pacos Ferreira who slipped down to the second tier.
Nuno Santos’ side haven’t been too tight in the back, while they had some troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net more frequently.
The visitors have been putting poor away performances as they managed to celebrate an away win just three times and remain undefeated in one more occasion. However, they’ve opened the current campaign pretty successfully with a surprising 2-0 victory over Rio Ave.

Vitoria Guimaraes vs Feirense: Prediction
Although they suffered a defeat in the opening round, they hosts are favourites in this one and they should be able to win all three points.
Feirense are pretty bad when playing away from home and they are expected to fight for the survival once again.
Their recent head to head clashes have been fairly efficient and these two teams might continue that trend in the upcoming match. In this one, we might see at least three goals in total.
