Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao will be aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Braga when they host Maritimo at their Estadio Municipal de Famalicao. Los Azuis e Brancos impressed in the 2019/20 Primeira Liga campaign, but they have yet to find their best form in the new season. Since important defender Riccieli misses Saturday’s game through suspension, we do not believe that home win should be considered.
Maritimo, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the first half of the season, but they surely capable of matching Famalicao behind closed doors. Considering that influential midfielder Jean returns from suspension for the visitors, punters can definitely find value in betting on Lito Vidigal’s troops. Keep in mind that Maritimo are eyeing their second away of the season as they managed to shock Porto at Estadio Do Dragao earlier in the process.
