FC Porto – Maritimo : Preview & Prediction
FC Porto receives next Monday, at 21:00, at Estádio do Dragão, Marítimo, in the game to count towards the 15th day of Liga NOS. The Dragons have just beat Vitória de Guimarães 4-0 in the Portuguese Cup Round of 16 in a game in which Sérgio Conceição took advantage of minutes to play for players like Maxi Pereira, Diego Reyes and André André. Once again, the blues and whites showed that they are going through a great phase, not giving any chance to the Vimaranense ensemble. They are leaders with the same 36 points of Sporting and will not be able to slip before a Marítimo who is one of the most defensive teams of this Liga NOS. The Madeiran team occupies the fifth place, with 27 points, not losing to the Portuguese championship since mid-October. His coach, Daniel Ramos, relies on his primary idea of playing in the defensive organization, having a very well positioned team and the most difficult to beat of this championship. With an FC Porto that is very motivated, we believe that the triumph smiles to the dragons, but with a Marítimo to do for the life and to counter to the maximum such favoritism.
Some dragons wear for the high number of games in such a short time.
They are two of the best defenses of Liga NOS: the dragons with only five conceded goals and the Madeirans with ten.
In four of the last five clashes between the two, there were less than 3.5 goals.
In four of the last five Marítimo games there were less than 3.5 goals.
With their fans, for the Liga NOS, FC Porto only conceded a draw against Benfica. But he faces a Marítimo who is one of the best organized teams defensively of this Portuguese championship. We believe in a game with less than 3.5 goals.
