Maritimo vs Santa Clara Football Prediction Today
The Marítimo won a status with the passage of Daniel Ramos by the club that the Barreira Stadium has always been one of the most favorable terrain for opponents to leave points, this is nothing new.
But with Daniel Ramos, the Marítimo broke records. Last year, only for the League NOS were 23 games without knowing the taste of defeat, of which won 16 and drew 9.
Of course, this merit is the combination of the work of many players, but especially of the staff and technical team.
Much of this squad has moved to this time, like the cases of goalkeeper Charles, defenders Bebeto, Rúben Ferreira, Zainadine, Jean Kléber, Rodrigo Pinho, Ricardo Valente or Joel.
And that’s just talking about the eleven most regularly used. But this year the Marítimo was very well reinforced and gave Cláudio Braga a team with more solutions than last season Daniel Ramos had at his disposal.
Suffice it to say, for example, that there are still players who took the title last year like Gamboa, Edgar Costa, or Rodrigo Pinho.
With the eleven base of last year, with only 2 or 3 changes, Cláudio Braga can and should make the most of the good work of Daniel Ramos, so he can transform the team into his image, in a quiet way and with the necessary time. Danny, if he is in good physical condition, will be a booster of “luxury” and will greatly increase creativity in the island attack.
With Vukovic and Kléber maintaining the team’s balance, and with Correa close at hand, the trio of the front, composed of Ricardo Valente, Danny and Joel can bring a lot of quality to the Madeiran attack.
The squad is good, the home factor is always a strong handicap in the team results, so the only unknown is really Cláudio Braga.
The fact that he does not have experience of Liga NOS is something to take into account, but we must not forget that it was part of his career in the Netherlands, and the knowledge that will have assimilated can now put it into practice.
Santa Clara moved up this year to the Liga NOS, but soon realized the intention of the direction in reinforcing the team, especially with players with experience in Liga NOS.
Anderson Carvalho, Patrick Vieira, Fábio Cardoso and César were the first, but they are still expected to get more name, until the closing of the transfer market.
The coach is João Henriques who was associated with the descent in Paços de Ferreira. It serves as a mitigating factor that he did not choose his team, something that is different now in Santa Clara.
In fact, if we are attentive we see that with him came two players from Leixões: Bruno Lamas and João Lucas, players trained by him, when he made his way through the Matosinhos club.
It will take time for Joao Henriques to build a collective that begins to have some quality.
However, the pair of powerhouses that points to be the most consistent, César and Fábio Cardoso are now coming, such as Anderson Carvalho, Patrick Vieira, or John Lucas.
Here, Joao Henriques will have to decide whether to opt for a more tied team, but of lower quality and experience, or else bet on the reinforcements already, risking to a less dynamic and entroment.

In any case, and safeguarding the surprise factor of Claudio Braga, I must admit that I see this Marítimo better prepared for the start of the season.
With the victory of Marítimo to pay 1.89 I can find value, even respecting the fact that Santa Clara has the quality to make a goal.
Bruno Lamas, stopped ball, Thiago or Fernando Andrade showed credentials and goals in the games of the 2nd League. Even so, we are on another level, and we will need an adaptation to a new reality.
