Betting tips for Feirense VS Sporting 10.02.2019
Sporting visit for the 3rd time Santa Maria da Feira, having won by (1-4) for the League Cup and then (0-2) for the Portuguese Cup. However, this game is the first between the two teams, without Nuno Manta as coach of the fagaceiros. The lions are no longer pointing to the title, and the secondary objective is to reach a place that gives access to the league champions, which is 8 points away. Marcel Keizer's team have little or nothing to lose, so it can help eliminate the pressure and let go of the quality that has already shown in the first games.
Feirense begins a "new life" after ending the bond with Nuno Manta Santos that lasted from 2016. It will be "forcibly" a different Feirense, but at the moment still an unknown. The squad is short, and it is hardly likely that the fighters will be fighting an intense fight against demotion. It was so in previous times with Nuno Manta, and whether or not like the style of play, the truth is that the main objective of the Santa Maria da Feira team has always been achieved.
In the direct confrontation with the lions, the Feirense presents a very negative balance. In addition to the two games in which he lost, this season, added even more 2 losses and 1 victory in the set of the last 5 games. In the last place, with 14 points, the fogaceira team already has a gap of 5 points to be able to leave the relegation zone. Only 2 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses are a very negative balance. The moment of form is not the best, although the team have only 2 games lost in the last 5, winning 3 draws.
This is a game that anticipates very complicated for the Feirense to react, but it is at these times that you see much of the strength that a team has, to give back to the events.
Sporting remains surrounded by many doubts, and now it is even questioned if the hiring of Marcel Keiser would have been the right one. The truth is that you should remember everything that happened in the club in the last year, and if there really were conditions for the team to take over as a candidate for the title. A lot has been done well in the recovery of the club, but it is still noticeable division, fruits still of the recent past of the club. All this is reflected within the four lines, and the fact that the team can not assert itself in the most demanding games is not unrelated to all this surrounding.
In the 4th position with 39 points, the leonina team is hardly likely to reach the first place, which is 12 points away. Also the 2nd place, which would be the 2nd goal, is also difficult as there are 8 points that need to recover for Benfica. Even third place is 7 points and has a strong competitor who is even in the title fight, Sporting Braga.
However, this "slightest pressure" can help not only prepare the next season, but also start in this game trying to win every game until the end of the season. The lions do not come from a good moment, where they lost the two derbies with Benfica, but it's time to react. Can you win for the 3rd time in Santa Maria da Feira?
Mathieu and Nani are in doubt, but if they are in good physical condition should go to play in the eleven.
Despite the great unknown that will be perceiving the behavior of Feirense, there is a clear tendency for Sporting to concede goals. This is perfectly obvious, right from the way the team defends. It is clearly the weakness of the team, and with a Feirense needing points, such as "from bread to mouth", we hardly see a game of goals. With the market of both mark in the pair, that is to say 2.0 in Bet.pt, will be my bet with more value for this game.
