Paços de Ferreira vs Maritimo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Marítimo is coming off 3 straight losses in the Portuguese league and just like their opponent, they are under pressure and with less motivation, thanks to their poor results.
They will try to reach the European qualification zone, but they will play away from home here.
A lot of midfield battles and defensive cautions is what I expect from this match! Marítimo has one of the toughest and more compact defences, that had only conceded 10 goals until 3 rounds ago.
I expect a very close match without many goal chances, but I think that Marítimo shouldn’t lose this match.
