Maritimo vs Benfica (Pick, Prediction, Preview)

Maritimo – Benfica

Friday night, at 20:30, the championship leader comes at Maritimo Funchal to duel with the first of round number 12 Primeira Liga.

Maritimo was always a middle ranking team in recent seasons and this happens now that occupies the 9th place with 14 points, however, is the team with the fewest goals in the Primeira Liga, 6. However, the last second stage has not lost, and managed to get a win and a draw, having received two goals in this game. Moreover, defense is the height, being the third best, Maritimo Sporting receiving fewer goals than the team that ranks second.

Info lot: Shaher Mansour is injured and uncertain Fabio China.

On the other side, “Eagles” are in first place with 29 points, five more than his main pursuer, Sporting Lisbon. In the previous stage managed the ninth to win the championship, Moreirense 3-0, in a game that you had at your discretion throughout the 90 minutes. This result Benfica remain unbeaten after the first 11 rounds, but 16 of those 29 points came within six games played away, posture which gave 12 goals and earned three.

Info lot Jonas, Alejandro Grimaldo and Eliseu are injured.

Probable teams:

Maritimo (4-2-3-1): Gottardi – Oliveira – Antonio – Raul – China – Sen – Fransergio – Brito – Bessa – Costa – Ghazaryan

Benfica (4-4-1-1): Moraes – Nelsinho – Lindelof – Luisao – Almeida – Salvio – Pizzi – Fejs – Cervi – Guedes – Jimenez

Three years have passed since the last match lost to Benfica in front of the Maritimo, meanwhile disputing the eight games, all accounting for them “vultures”. Overall, I expect from Guedes & Co. to make a good match, but the show may be missing, Maritimo is a team that knows very well to close or at least it showed in meetings so far.

Prediction: Over 2,5 goals
Odds: 1,60
