Portimonense has been a pleasant surprise this season….
And their spot on the league table doesn’t really do them justice,
but we also must not forget that this is a team that has just been promoted this season, which justifies the inexperience they have shown and that has cost them important points on their campaign.
The team is second-to-last, only having 1 win in 5 matches, but we should note that they already faced teams like Marítimo, Braga, Rio Ave and Benfica, which are naturally superior opponents.
However, none of them had an easy task beating this team. They only failed to score against Rio Ave, and they almost snatched a point from Estádio da Luz against Benfica.
Feirense, this season, seems to be even stronger than they were last season. They are in 6th place with 8 points in 5 matches,
and they barely snatched a point against Sporting last week too, since they lost 2-3 at home, only conceding the winning goal on a penalty in injury time, after a clear foul.
The team defends well and they have only conceded 5 goals so far. However, Portimonense’s attack is strong.
Their coach has already stated that he wants to score in Portimão, despite the experience of their opponents.

Portimonense vs Feirense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With that said, I think we will have an interesting encounter here. On one hand, we have a team that is hungry for a win,
despite their good performances so far, and on the other hand, we have a very compact team, who is strong on the counter-attack.
Because of that, I think that Portimonense’s defensive weaknesses will hurt them and I think Feirense will score. On the other hand, I think that either Fabrício or Pires will also bag one.
Their coach already manages this team for 2 years now and that is their main quality: the fact that the players already play together for a long time.
I think we will see a match with goals, much like the last matches between these two sides.
