Maritimo vs Aves
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.30 UK/ 16.30 CET
Venue: Estádio dos Barreiros (Funchal).
Desportivo das Aves is struggling to find their feet, as they lie at the bottom of the table with only 5 wins all season. Missing quality players up front are the main problem of their downfall, as they scored 1.08goals per game this season.
Their individual errors and poor defending are the main reasons for their struggle, as they concede 1.7 goals per match. Augusto Inacio’s plan of action never worked, as opponents always find the gap and breach their defense regularly.
The Greatest of the Islands are under immense pressure from the teams below them for the relegation battle. Forward signing has been a disaster for them, as they are not finding the back of the net at important instances. It is very evident from the goal rout they are in.
Carlos Pereira’s tactics are kind of a defensive one. They always rely on the long balls and direct football to make something out in their attacking third.

Maritimo vs Aves Prediction
Maritimo may have the last laugh in this one, winning this game by a late goal. The home advantage will be turned in their favor to edge past their opposition in this encounter. Desportivo das Aveswill be once again the victim of misfortune. The three points will be a big relief for the home side to stay alive in this league.
Whenever these two sides met 2-1 score-line has been a consistent digit on the board. The match will be decided by a late goal. One of the players from the home side will be at the end of the pass and finish it in the back of the net. So I think the scoreline will repeat once again in this encounter.
