Maritimo vs FC Porto
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 22 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio dos Barreiros.
The Lions of Almirante Reis are possibly the worst team in the whole competition at present. They are on a long losing run, and are conceding goals in frightening numbers.
They are hanging by a thread over the relegation cut-off, and by the looks of things they are about to take part in a lengthy relegation battle.
Meanwhile, the Dragons are the reigning champions of the Portuguese top flight, and are on a long unbeaten run. They have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition, and have been on a roll on the road as well.
In addition, they also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect Porto to deliver a huge win this Monday at the Estádio dos Barreiros.

Maritimo vs Porto Prediction
Milton Mendes’s men are on a six-game losing run, and had conceded two or more goals in five of the past six fixtures. Note that they have also registered a single league win at this stadium after September of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on an eight-match unbeaten run, and remained so in 25 of their past 26 matches. In the process, they had also gone on a stretch of 15 wins from 16 games.
In addition, the reigning champions also have a great h2h record against this foe over the years.
As such, expect Porto to deliver a winning performance this Monday, and that too in a dominating manner.
