Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Maritimo play host to Ferreira at Estadio dos Barreiros in the Primeira Liga round 15. Maritimo have been producing fine displays in all competitions in 2021, with the team beating Sporting 2-0 in Taca de Portugal, while defeating Gil Vicente in the Primeira Liga. O Maior das Ilhas, though, have been having their ups and downs at home ground this term, with the team eyeing their only third home triumph of the process.
Maritimo boss Milton Mendes should have a full squad to choose from. Ferreira, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. Since both teams have been in a fine form of late, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Both Jan and Silva have been struggling with injuries for the visitors, and the duo is unlikely to feature against Maritimo on Matchday 15.
Highlighted Player (Charles):
Charles Marcelo da Silva is a Brazilian goalkeeper who plays for Primeira Liga side Maritimo. Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on February 4, 1994, Charles started his youth career at Cruzeiro, and in 2014 he moved to fellow Brazilian club Vasco da Gama.
After making nine appearances in the Brazilian top flight for the Vasco da Gama senior team, Charles was loaned to Maritimo in 2015. In 2016 the 185-cm-tall shot-stopper signed a permanent deal with the Portuguese outfit. Charles Marcelo da Silva has 14 caps with the Brazil U17 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the Brazil senior team.
He made his Maritimo debut in the Portuguese top flight on January 15, 2017, in a 3-1 win over Pacos de Ferreira. Charles managed to keep seven clean sheets in 21 appearances for Maritimo in the 2018/2019 Primeira Liga season. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 94 jersey.
Highlighted Team (Ferreira):
Founded on April 5, 1950, Pacos de Ferreira are a Portuguese football club who play their home games at Estadio da Mata Real. The venue can hold up to 9,077 people and it was opened in October 7, 1973. Os Castores are well known for their yellow shirts and green shorts, with the team wearing white and black kit when playing on the travels.
Pacos de Ferreira have yet to win the Primeira Liga trophy, but they did well to make it to the Taca de Portugal final in the 2008/2009 season. Os Castores faced Porto in the title game, with the Dragons attacker Lisandro Lopez scoring the only game of the match.
Two seasons later Pacos de Ferreira faced Benfica in the Taca da Liga final, with the Eagles lifting the trophy. Wolverhampton forward Diogo Jota is one of notable footballers who started their senior careers at Pacos de Ferreira.
