Maritimo vs Sporting CP
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 August 2019
Kick-off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Estádio dos Barreiros (Funchal).
Despite being the home team with the advantage over their foes, it’s pretty known the more likely favorites are the visitors actually. Last season the visitors were in the third place, while the hosts settled at the twelfth standing in the table.
By the end of the last season, the hosts suffered three losses in five matches on a large margin. The visitors, on the other hand, lost only one game in a narrow margin. Sporting clearly had a winning run last season in the same tournament.
Both teams are still working on their ability to find the back of the net consistently in both the halves. Along with that, Sporting has five wins from six away games lately and the hosts share the same figures in home games with a low goal-scoring spree.
