Paços de Ferreira – Marítimo Preview 13/01/2018

THE GAME – LEAVE US (18th Day)

This is the first game, after the “Petit era”! The coach has chosen to leave and Paços de Ferreira is now looking for alternatives! With the departure of Petit, Paços de Ferreira goes to the 3rd coach this season, after Vasco Seabra also left! This scenario always moves with the teams and we will see that Paços de Ferreira will have at the Estádio Capital do Móvel. Even at home, Paços de Ferreira has not been well, showing many difficulties in winning his games. Receives in this 18th day the Marítimo that has shown less brilliance, in these last days! However, Daniel Ramos has been deprived of some key players, such as the Erdem Sen latch or the Zainadine central! The Mozambican should already be fit and is a very important reinforcement for the islanders. Paços de Ferreira should still play under Petit’s game standard, but it is likely that there will be a positive reaction. The house factor is always very strong, in Paços de Ferreira, and Marítimo has proved to be competent, even as a visitor. A very interesting game where victory can fall to anywhere!


Paços de Ferreira needs a home win to calm! The “beavers” no longer win, there are 3 games at home, something that is worrisome for a team that plies most points at home!

Paços de Ferreira is only 2 points above the relegation line, so he is under a lot of pressure to win this game even without a coach!

The Marítimo adds 3 consecutive defeats and crosses the worst moment of the season. However 2 of the 3 defeats were against FC Porto and Sporting!

As a visitor, in the last 5 games, Marítimo lost 3, drew 1 and only won 1.

But the Marítimo has shown ability to score goals, even as a visitor, has scored in 6 of the last 7 trips!


A game that promises a lot of balance and even a high probability of a draw. Paços de Ferreira has the home factor in their favor, but Marítimo has shown more football and has great effectiveness in their attack. With the need to win, on the part of the Paços, to leave of uncomfortable zone,, it should assume more the game!
