Pacos de Ferreira v Newcastle United match banter.
Newcastle United go hunting beaver!
Venue: Estádio da Mata Real, Paços de Ferreira, Portugal.
Date: Tues 23rd July, 2013.
Kick off: 8.00pm.
Referee: Jorge Sousa.
UK TV: None.

Well this lot will certainly be no pushovers, and should be an even stiffer teat than our last Portuguese opponents, Rio Ave, and they beat us 3-1!

Although they only play before around 5,000 fans at their own stadium (and that’s for a big game), Pacos de Ferreira, or the “Beavers” as they are known were third in last season’s Portuguese Primeira Liga behind Benfica and Porto. Although the latter teams were miles ahead (23 and 24 points) of this evening’s opponents and the rest of the chasing pack, it is still some achivement to beat the likes of Braga (our next opponents), not to mention the fading giants of Sporting. Hence, if they show up and decide to really have a go, our Silver Supremo is going to have to up his game somehow.
