Maritimo vs Porto by Jiaho9
Maritimo is in the fight for the 6th spot, and a qualificatio for Europa League in the next season. They only have a 2 point advantage over Rio Ave (the 7th placed) and I believe that if they manage to grab points this season, they will end this fight and will be in the Europa League next season. The only player in doubt for this game is Mauricio, their central back, but they still can recover until the game.
At home, Maritimo is one of the best teams in the league with only 2 wins in their 13 home games, and none of the losts hapend against the best teams in Portugal (won against Benfica, tied against Sporting, won against Braga). Additionally, in their last 10 home games, they scored in 9 of them.
Porto, in the other side, is fighting for the league title, but they are not playing that well. I believe that they are for sure the favourite to win this game, but this ill be a very hard game for the team. They will have to play withotu Danilo (a european champion with Portugal national team in the summer, and that played 26 games this season in the league) and Maxi Pereira (player from Uruguay national team, which played 22 games in the league this season). Tis two players are crutial in the defensive maneuver of the team, and withotu them, they will be more fragile.
Based in all of this I believe that this will be a very good game, with both teams searching the goal, and I believe that we will be able to see goals in both nets.
Good Luck and enjoy the game.
