Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio da Capital do Movel will host Sunday’s football game between Ferreira and Maritimo, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 32. The hosts did well to book their place in the Europa Conference League, meaning that they have little to play for in the season finale. The good news for the hosts is that attacker Helder Ferreira returns from suspension.
Maritimo, on the other hand, are three points clear of the relegation zone. The visitors aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Gil Vicente, and seeing that they want this win more than the hosts, away win should be considered. Both Africo and Mosquera are sidelined with injuries, but there are no fresh selection worries in the away team. In their last away game in the Primeira Liga Maritimo defeated Boavista 1-0.
