Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao play host to Maritimo at their Estadio Municipal de Famalicao on day 6 of the new Primeira Liga campaign. Famalicao are still eyeing their first win of the season, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field this time out. A man to watch in the home team will be Simon Bokote Banza, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Moreirense. Head coach Ivo Vieira should have a full squad to choose from.
Maritimo, on the other hand, are on a three-game winless run in the national championship. Since the visitors experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-2 draw with Arouca, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Famalicao. Midfielde Vidigal will have to serve his one-match ban in Saturday’s clash.
