Maritimo vs Moreirense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Estadio dos Barreiros (Funchal).
Moreirense are enjoying one of the best Primeira Liga campaigns in their history this season. They hold the sky-high 5th position after 24 rounds and could well feature Europa League qualifications next term. Os verdes e Brancos were on a particularly good touch lately winning four and drawing two of last six league affairs. Can they keep such splendid run of form gong on Saturday afternoon against relegation threatened Maritimo?
The hosts are in desperate need for points as they sit right on the brink of the danger area. Scoring goals has been a serious issue for them so far in the season. O Maior das Ilhas have the weakest attacking record in the entire division with just 13 goals scored in 24 rounds. Petit’s men notched only one goal in last six league affairs, but they were also tough to break down at the other end. This is why none of past five matches Maritimo played in the league has produced more than one goal.
