Benfica vs Maritimo Prediction 14 April 2017

Tournament: Portuguese Primeira Division
Location: Estadio da Luz
Match date: 14.04.2017 at 18:15

On April 14 2017 at 18:15 in Lisbon in the regular game of the 29th matchday of the Portuguese Primeira Division at the Estadio da Luz Benfica play against Maritimo.

Benfica and Porto are now in the fierce race for the first place in the championship. Anyway, Benfica are still the leaders of the championship as they are one point above Porto. The victory against Moreirense 0:1 was the 21st one in the current season for the Eagles. We must also admit that Benfica have already scored 58 goals in their 28 matches played this season and only conceded 14. Moreover, Benfica are one of two teams, which haven’t lost a single home game alongside with Porto.

As for Maritimo, they still have chances to take a place in the Euro Cups zone. They have been in really good conditions lately, even though they couldn’t avoid a few mistakes. The victory against Chaves 2:1 in the latest game was the third one in the latest five games, we must also remind you that in those games Maritimo outplayed Arouca 3:1 and Setubal 1:0, lost to Boavista 3:0 and drew Braga 3:3. As a result, they have 44 points and take sixth place in the standings of the Portuguese Primeira 6 points below the fifth position.

The teams met five times during the year 2016. The results of these games show the huge advantage of Benfica as they won four of them. Anyway, in the first round game of the current season Maritimo sensationally won against Benfica 2:1 at home. Benfica have already been kicked-off from the Euro Cups and they are still in the race for two trophies in the current season. We don’t think that Maritimo will be an obstacle for Benfica in the upcoming game.
