Maritimo vs Boavista Prediction
Maritimo will be overjoyed about how their previous match-day ended up. They were playing hosts to Santa Clara, and were about to lose 1-2. However, the home team was able to fire in the equalizer in the 90+7th minute.
Meanwhile, Boavista tried their best to deal with the Benfica challenge the previous game week, but had to succumb to a defeat at the last. The first half had ended 1-1, but in the latter 45 minutes, the guests slotted in three more goals.
This Saturday consider how both teams have been faring in their respective games. Maritimo are on a nine-match winless run, and remained so in 14 of their last 16. At home, the team could manage a total of only one victory this campaign.
On the other hand, Boavista were unbeaten in 11 of their previous 14 overall match-ups, and have lost just twice this whole campaign on the road.
Moreover, Boavista recorded four of the prior six h2h wins, and in general, teams on the road have fared well in recent h2h games.
Considering all these factors together, Boavista emerges as the favorite to post the three points on the board. However, to be on the safe side, we will opt for the Double Chance.
