Maritimo vs Vitoria de Guimaraes Prediction

Maritimo had a 1-0 win on the road against Rio Ave in their previous league encounter. It was their second consecutive win in the campaign lately.

Even so, these wins were against weaker sides in the league. Maritimo has struggled to find points when facing the top part teams.

Meanwhile, Guimaraes had two losses in their past five league overall fixtures. One loss in their previous league clash against Benfica at home with a 0-1 scoreline.

On the other hand, Maritimo has been in a mixed form at home. With two wins and losses each in eight home matches so far, Maritimo has had a hard time finding stability.

In the meantime, Guimaraes has been struggling on the road. They have only one win in their prior seven trips on the road. Also, they have drawn the recent three away games in their schedule.

As such, Maritimo has not struggled at home but they have been facing weaker teams. So, they cannot be counted on to fare well against Guimaraes. Also, Guimaraes has lost mostly to top part teams only.

Hence, Guimaraes has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes with probably under 2.5 goals in the clash.
