Nacional vs Maritimo – Liga Sagres
November 12, 2010 ás 13:12
Pick: Over 2 Goals @ 1.83 in Pinnacle / Result:
Nacional -> It’s fourth in the League with 16 points in 10 matches. Has played 5 matches at home with 3 victories and 2 defeats. They come from two consecutive wins against Setúbal at home and P. Ferreira away, both by 1-0.
A victory here, with some failures from the top teams may take the team to the Champions League position. Nacional will have two absences for this game: Pedro Oldoni and Amuneke.
The players called by manager Jokanovic are:
Goalkeepers: Rafael Bracali and Elisson
Defenders: Patacas, Danielson, Claudemir, Sojanovic, Felipe Lopes e Tomasevic
Midfielders: Ivan Todorovic, Bruno Amaro, Skolnik, Juninho, Luís Alberto, Pecnik and Mihelic.
Strikers: João Aurélio, Diego Barcellos, Mateus, Edgar Costa and Orlando Sá.
Marítimo -> Currently 13th with only 8 points in 10 matches. They have only one victory in the League, but they haven’t lost for the last 4 games. Even so they are only one point away from the bottom places. They have 5 games away where they lost twice and tied 3 times. Those 3 ties are consecutive, maintaining an efemerous invencibility. They need a win to get distance from a dangerous place. For this match there will be two absences as well: Ricardo Esteves and Fernando.
Manager Pedro Martins called the following players:
Goalkeepers: Peçanha and Marcelo.
Defenders: Briguel, João Guilherme, Robson, Roberge amd Luciano Amaral.
Midfielders: Roberto Sousa, Alonso, Rafael Miranda, Sidnei and Danilo Dias
Strikers: Marquinho, Cherrad, Babá, Heldon, Djalma and Kléber.
The game: I believe in a game with lot of opportunities for both sides, considering the needs from both teams. Both need to get points, more than a simple tie, to reach their goals. Nacional comes from two wins in a row and Marítimo from 4 unbeatable plays. Two teams in a highly confident moment and will be a very split game.
