Belenenses vs Maritimo – Taça da Liga : Belenenses is a Portuguese team that ocupies the 10th place of Liga NOS with 17 points in 15 matches.
Belenenses is a team that doesn’t justify their current position in the league. The quality of play this team presents is not very impressive and except 2 or 3 players that are definitely good, I find them very ordinary.
Belenenses is on a poor moment of form, not winning for 6 consecutive matches and having mediocre displays.
On this League Cup they have chances to advance, because they drew 1-1 in the first match in Madeira, against União.
Marítimo is a Portuguese team that occupies the 5th place of Liga NOS with 27 points in 15 matches.
Marítimo is a team that plays good football, has a very compact team, who plays very tight between the different sectors and very cooperative inside the pitch.
The islanders have started the season also competing in the Europa League, where they were eliminated on the play-offs, and Taça de Portugal, where they were also eliminated by Cova da Piedade, very surprisingly.
All they have now is the league, where they are fighting for a European spot, and this League Cup, where they still have good chances to advance, especially after the 0-0 draw against Sporting in Alvalade.
Gamboa, who was sent off at Estádio do Dragão, will miss this match.
Belenenses vs Maritimo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Marítimo already lost 1-0 in Belém for the league, but now I fully believe they will be able to get a positive result. Marítimo’s team has more football than Belenenses and I’d be very surprised if the home team would beat the islanders again.
Marítimo will make a strong effort in this match, because the more complicated match, against Sporting, they were able to snatch a draw, which means that now, if they win this match, they have very good chances of advancing in the competition.
Still, I will go with Marítimo EH +1, which is the safer option.
|Maritimo AH +0,5||
