Maritimo vs FC Porto Prediction
The visitors come into the match with the favorite tags. They have shined really well this season in the Primeira Liga, just like the previous seasons. Vincent Aboubakar has really taken up the mantle for scoring and has led the charts for his team since the beginning of the season. Once more, the hosts will look up to him for inspiration.
FC Porto is really good at winning aerial duels, creating frequent scoring chances and setting up dangerous set pieces. With their talent up front and coordination between team members, FC Porto has this match almost in the bag.
Maritimo has been in bad form for at least the last two months. In fact, they are currently on a run of seven winless matches. It’s high time they find solutions for their defensive problems. But against a team like Porto, it looks like their winless run would keep going on.
Expect a match dominated by Porto. They would really go for an early goal and then try to choke out the hosts. Expect a victory for the hosts with at least a two-goal margin.
