Venue: Estadio do Barreiros (Funchal).
Mid-table counterparts Maritimo and Boavista are set to come across each other for the last round clash on Saturday afternoon at Estadio dos Barreiros in Funchal. The match has n importance whatsoever in terms of teams’ ambitions of securing any of European competitions or avoiding relegation as teams have nowhere to go coming into this final Matchday tie.
The hosts could actually break into the top ten in the league ladder and overtake their Saturday rivals with a three-pointer here. Nonetheless, it is hard to see such scenario coming knowing Boavista were flying high in recent matches. Os Axadrezados pulled off three impressive wins having netted as many as ten goals along the way. Lito Vidigal’s men notched at least three goals in each of three mentioned victories. Can they keep complete the season on a high with the fourth consecutive win here in Funchal?
