Opportunity knocks in the Battle of the O’s as Oporto opposes Oeiras.
Match Prediction: Oporto have progressed as a unit as the tournament has gone on, with a shock win over ECS Cartaxo champions Malo as genuine evidence of their improvement in this T10 format. OCC will provide a stiff challenge to a solid Oeiras outfit who have moved up to second place in the standings but who will be looking to bounce back from two defeats to the leaders Gorkha 11 the previous evening. It’s time for Conrad Greenshields to cash in for Oeiras with both bat and ball.
