In the last round, Benfica lost and lost the lead to Porto, but whether Maritimo will be able to create problems for the favorite on June 29 – you will find the answer in our forecast. Should I wait for a sensation?
“Maritimo” has a poor season – the team of Jose Manuel Gomes is only 16th in the table so far. Only four points are separated from the relegation zone of the “Lions of Madeira”, so the threat of departure is more real than ever. In the last round, Maritimo lost 2: 3 to Portimonense, allowing the opponent to reduce the distance to almost a minimum and the rest of the season will most likely lead the club in a fight for survival.
Benfica has ambitious goals, but so far the Eagles are losing to Porto. In the table of the main contenders for the title, he shares three points, which are not yet a serious handicap, but any mistake can significantly aggravate the situation. In the last round, Benfica, contrary to all forecasts, lost 3: 4 to Santa Clara, having suffered a fourth defeat of the season.
Last week, the Portuguese press reported that the team could be headed by a former Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino from the new season, which is a very serious call for Bruno Lage , whose position is now under serious threat.
In the last four matches, Maritimo suffered four defeats from Benfica.
Only in one of the last seven matches did Maritimo win
Benfica did not lose in any of the last four away matches of the championship – two wins and two draws
“Benfica” was disgraced once again in the last round, losing 3-4 to “Santa Clare”, despite the fact that she led in the account until the 81st minute. Now the “eagles” have no right to make a mistake – Porto is also not perfect, but relying on the fact that before the end of the season the “dragons” will lose six or more points is more than naive.
“Maritimo” is in a serious crisis and I can’t oppose anything in the last round to going to the departure area of “Portimonence”, with “Benfica”, although not in the best condition, it is hardly worth counting on points.
We believe that the hosts have no chance. Forecast – Asian handicap (-1) on Benfica . In 1x bet, such an outcome is offered with a coefficient of 1.99
