Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Maritimo were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Sporting CP in Lisbon, but the Lions eventually picked up all three points from the match. O Maior das Ilhas’ performances are much better than their results, and it should come as no surprise that they are seen as favourites to win Sunday’s football match against Desportivo Aves. Nuno Manta Santos’ troops did well to beat Portimonense 3-0 in the relegation six-pointer on Matchday 17, but Boavista proved to be a big catch for the rock-bottom side at the weekend.
Desportivo Aves are having a season to forget and we do not believe that the team who have collected only nine points in the national championship to date are capable of spoiling Maritimo’s party at Estadio dos Barreiros. You should know that O Maior das Ilhas are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet on home soil.
