Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 24 August 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK
Venue: Estadio dos Barreiros (Funchal).
Third round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga is going to be opened with a clash between Maritimo and Chaves.
Home side opened the season with a victory over newly promoted Santa Clara, however they lost in the previous round away to Rio Ave.
They were pretty close to snatching the place in Europa League last season, but they remained four points behind the fifth place.
Maritimo haven’t been too efficient, while their defence did a decent job. Rodrigo Pinho and the lads have been performing very well in front of their fans as they allowed just three defeats at home ground.
The hosts are looking forward to challenging the top five this season as well.
Chaves had a very successful last season as they had the same score as their rivals although their main goal was to stay clear of the relegation.
They enjoyed a pretty good finish as they celebrated three victories in the final five rounds.
The visitors have been very successful when playing away from home as they managed to snatch seven victories at away pitches.
Daniel Ramos’ side has also opened the current season by winning three points and they are looking for another safe finish.
Maritimo vs Chaves: Head-to-head
- Chaves have been more successful lately as they managed to tie three victories against their opposition.
- Maritimo have celebrated only once, while in their clashes we can usually see goals in both nets.
- The last two matches went over 2.5 margin as well.
Maritimo vs Chaves: Prediction
This is going to be a tight clash, however the hosts should have a slight advantage as they are playing excellent at home ground.
Any side finds it tough to play on Madeira Island and the hosts should snatch all three points in this one.
We are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes and we are expecting to see a fair number of goals in this one.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the nets do not remain still in this encounter as well.
