Feirense vs Boavista – Liga NOS : On the match that opens up the hostilities of this Saturday of matches in Portugal counting towards Liga NOS’ 25th round
The local side Feirense and the visiting side Boavista will face off in Santa Maria da Feira, at the Estádio Marcolino de Castro,
on an encounter between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season, with their first meeting having finished with a 1-0 win for Boavista at home, in September.
Nuno Manta’s team is making a campaign well below the expectations so far, not building up on the excellent campaign they’ve made on the 2nd half of the previous season and, that way,
being on the relegation zone going into this round, although a victory would bring them out of that zone once again.
The team is on a very negative streak of results, by suffering 5 consecutive losses and conceding a lot of goals in that period, while it is also worth noting that they’ve lost an incredible amount of 7 of their last 9 matches played.
As for Boavista, they are certainly making their best campaign since they’ve returned to the top Portuguese tier, having practically ensured they avoid relegation, such is the punctual advantage over the last places,
and still having a chance to achieve an historical qualification for next season’s European competitions, being on an excellent 7th place in the league.
Jorge Simão’s team is coming off a streak of some alternation in terms of results, alternating between win and loss on their last 7 matches, having won all matches at home in that period but also losing all the matches played away from home on that recent streak.
Feirense vs Boavista – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Given the mentality of playing good football that both teams have (although they are not always able to put it into practice),
I believe we will have a very exciting match here, even because the two teams need points, although for very different reasons..
