Victory for Benfica

Benfica have had contrasting fortunes over the last few weeks. Even though the team put together a strong fight against Liverpool in the Champions League, the domestic results have not been convincing and the draw with Famalicao is a confirmation of the same. Maritimo have displayed plenty of heart in the last few weeks, but they do struggle even at home.

Total goals under 2.5

Maritimo scored four goals in the last home match, but this was one of those matches that can be treated as an exception rather than as an example. Even though three out of the last five matches for Benfica have produced more than 2.5 goals, the lack of motivation within the two teams is likely to keep things dull.

Both teams to score – yes

Benfica have not managed a clean sheet in four out of the recent five Primeira Liga matches. This penultimate away match is unlikely to be any different with Maritimo showing a lot of spirit in recent games.

Maritimo vs Benfica: Match Preview and Team News


Maritimo have gone through a string of successes over the last two matches in different forms. The comeback point against Santa Clara will be a huge morale boost for the team, but there is not much that Maritimo can achieve in the remaining few games of the season. The players are likely to go into a holiday mood. Vasco Seabra will be without Stefano Beltrame and Pedro Teixeira due to injury.


After the Champions League exit, Benfica’s primary objective is to maintain momentum and finish the campaign on a strong note so that they can come next season and aim for the title. As it stands, Benfica will also be missing out on the second spot. Nelson Verissimo has Rafa Silva, Lucas Verissimo, and Rodrigo Pinho out of action.
