Maritimo and GD Chaves will square off at the Estadio dos Barreiros on Monday’s Portugal Primeira Liga.
Maritimo have enjoyed a good pre-season campaign, and they won the last 2 Friendly games, with wining over Leixoes and Santa Clara. However, they suffered a 1-5 away loss at the hands of FC Porto in the opening round of the new season, and now they haven’t got a win in 5 League games across the seasons since the middle of April.
GD Chaves promoted into Portuguese top flight last season a 2-1 aggregate victory over Moreirense in the promotion playoffs after finishing 3rd in the Segunda Liga. In the new League, they failed to win the first round when they were beaten by Vitoria de Guimaraes with 0-1 at home.
Maritimo is a more superior and experienced team than their rival. And they have won past three home games in all competitions. My prediction is Maritimo would get a narrow win by this round.
1X2 Pick: 1
