Benfica didn’t have the best possible start of the new season in Portugal. They are currently 3rd in the league standings, being on 5 points behind the leader Porto. Right now Benfica has a record of five wins, one draw and one loss, while Porto are perfect – seven wins from seven games.

 

Of course, it’s still too early for anything, but the champions have some catching up to do. In their last match Benfica won against Pacos de Ferreira at home. It was a nice way for the team to redeem itself after the loss against Boavista in the previous round.

 

Maritimo on the other hand are performing surprisingly good since the start of the new season. They are currently 4th in the league standings with 15 points and a record of five wins and two defeats. Before losing to Vitoria Guimaraes in the last round, Maritimo were enjoying a run of four consecutive wins. If they continue like this, Maritimo could even chase an European qualification this season.

 

During the week Benfica had a terrible game against Basel in the Champions League. The Portuguese team lost the game on Swiss ground with 0-5, which is one of the heaviest defeats for Benfica in Europe. The question is – can they recover in time to face the strong team of Maritimo?

 

This is a great chance for Maritimo. Most surely Benfica will still think about what happened in Switzerland and the five goals which they conceded. If Maritimo use this in their favour, they could enjoy a win against the champions.
