Maritimo hosts Porto in a match from the 32th round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this game.
Porto are close to winning the Primeira Liga. On Saturday Benfica surprisingly suffered a home defeat against Tondela, which gives Porto a chance to increase its lead in front of Benfica to 5 points. The Dragons just need to win against Maritimo. If they do that, then it would become very difficult for Benfica to win the title.
Right now Porto are leaders in the Primeira Liga with 79 points – two more than Benfica. Porto’s record so far shows 25 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses. In their last five games the Dragons are almost perfect four wins and one loss against Belenenses.
In the prevous round Porto enjoyed a 5-1 win over Vitoria Setubal at home. It was dominant performance by the home team, who didn’t leave any chances to its opponent.
Maritimo on the other hand are 6th in the Primeira Liga with 44 points won so far. They have a record of 12 wins, 8 draws and 11 defeats. In their last five games Maritimo won twice, made two draws and lost once – against Sporting Braga in the previous round.
This season Maritimo are performing like a typical midtable team. They still have a chance to finish 5th in the Primeira Liga, being on par with the 5th Rio Ave. But can they win something against Porto?
Porto are arguably the big favourite here. The Dragons need a win to increase their lead in front of Benfica and they will try to achieve it. They know that three points in Maritimo would mean the title.
