Belenenses vs Maritimo Prediction & Match Preview

Belenenses vs Maritimo
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 17th February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisabon – Oeiras).

Armando Teixeira’s men are well known in footballing circles for their stinginess in front of the goal. It has cost them too in great detail, as the club is on the brink of drowning into the exit zone.

Their last game on the road ended with a 1-0 scoreline against Chaves. Though the tie looked as if it would end in a stalemate, Renan Bressan appeared the savior for the home team, in the 69th minute.

O Belem is equal in measure in terms of their lack of initiative to score goals. Their reliable defense has been carrying them all season.

The visitors conceded just two goals more than second-placed Benfica while scoring just three more than Nacional, who languishes in the relegation tier.

Belenenses vs Maritimo Prediction

The Greatest of the Islands holds the distinction of having registered the least number of goals in this Primeira Liga season so far. Even the dead-last placed Feirense has outscored them. Coming to our hosts, they too possess a rather dull style of play that heavily focuses on the defense. The team has scored goals in par with relegation-threatened sides.

It’s gearing up to be a low goal-scoring affair.

On top of that, 1-0 scoreline seems to be the most repeated result whenever these teams have locked horns. Six of the last nine h2h wins came for a margin of a single goal, and the last four wins at this venue were recorded by the Pastries, with aid of the same score. Going further back, seven of the total twelve wins that came at the Estádio Nacional do Jamor, also stood true to this trend.

There’s little reason to believe that anything else might be the outcome this match-day.
