The Marítimo moves to the Capital of the Mobile to measure forces with the Paços de Ferreira in a match regarding the eighteenth day of Liga NOS Portuguese. At the start of the second round, the beavers are in sixteenth place with 14 points, 19 goals scored and 34 goals conceded. They come from a draw to a ball with Portimonense also in their stronghold, in a game in which despite being in numerical advantage did not get the 3 points. The Pacenses are not in the best sport at all levels and this will be a game of pressure and nervousness redoubled, given the need to go adding points towards maintenance. As for the Marítimo, it has reduced some production in the last games and is in the sixth place, with 27 points, 17 goals scored and 20 spoiled. At the start of the previous round, Madeira had only 15 goals, but the 5-0 defeat at Alvalade increased that number. Islanders come from 3 straight defeats to the NOS League and as their opponents will play under pressure and with less motivation from the poor results, they will fight for a place in the European races but will play out of doors. A lot of midfield and aggressive defensive aggression is what we expect from this duel!
