Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Maritimo will be aiming to avoid automatic relegation when they take on Vizela in their last home game of the regular season. The hosts failed to win the previous four league matches, but they are still seen as favourites to beat Vizela on home soil. Considering that Mozambique international is back after missing the 2-1 loss to Sporting due to loan agreement, boss Jose Manuel Gomes should have a full squad to choose from.
The visitors, on the other hand, collected only one point in total from the last four league matches. Vizela do not seem to be at their sharpest and seeing that they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened hosts. Kiki is pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
Highlighted Team (Maritimo):
Based in Funchal, Madeira, Maritimo are a Portuguese club that compete in Primeira Liga. O Maior das Ilhas (The Greatest of the Islands) play their home matches in the national championship at Estadio do Maritimo.
The stadium was officially founded on May 5, 1957 and it can hold up to 10,932 spectators. Maritimo won their first and only Campeonato de Portugal in the 1925/1926 season, with the team beating Belenenses in the title game 2-0 at Campo do Ameal. Maritimo wear green shirts with red stripes and white shorts when playing on home soil, whilst the colour of their away kit is sky blue.
