It has been more competitive, in fact, but still not enough. Estoril have scored points in four of their last five matches but have managed to win only once in this stretch. seeing their improvements being based on draws, Estoril could not find the strength to leave the relegation zone.
In the last round, playing with Vitória de Setúbal as a visitor, Estoril showed strength to run behind the draw. The team lost by 2 × 0 and looked for the result in the final stretch of the game. It was the second consecutive game without losing. Still having clear tactical difficulties, but with willingness and confidence on the offensive to fight for what it needs, Estoril still believes in getting more. At home, however, disappointments are frequent.
The coach Ivo Vieira will keep the formation of the last performances.
The Feirense are some positions ahead of the relegation zone, but the difference in points is quite short. The stance in results in the last rounds, causes the fear to remain high. The team suffered four defeats in the last six performances.
In the last round, the Feirense even gave some work to the powerful Porto, but ended up being defeated at home by 2 × 1. If you can present the same position, relying more on yourself, the Feirense can work and dream points against a rival that is within the relegation zone, certainly. The problem is that, as a visitor, life for the Feirense is usually harder. If you do not react today, the situation will begin to get very complicated.
Coach Nuno Manta Santos will repeat the training that gave powerful Porto work in the last round.
Oh, one more hard game. Despite some positions ahead, the life of the visiting team is as complicated as that of the rival, I think. However, there is a little advantage in motivating the Feirense in this duel. Like it or not, the team gave work to Porto in the last round. If you repeat the basis of this performance, the chances of getting a good result here increase. Estoril has had a hard time getting in the way at home. Well, in a tough game, I think the feirense, at least, will avoid a wide defeat here.
