Maritimo vs Sporting CP: Head-to-head stats

Sporting have won in all of their last 8 matches in all competitions against Maritimo. They have also kept clean sheets in 3 of the last 4 wins.

While Maritimo’s last win over Sporting came at Lisbon on 2013, which was the end of a 4 match unbeaten streak which involves 2 wins and 2 draws.

Maritimo vs Sporting CP: Prediction

Sporting seems to struggle in away games this season and a team like Maritimo could prove pretty hard to break down. The hosts have a good record at home and will be confident after beating the likes of Braga and Benfica here. Sporting are on an 8 match winning streak, but Maritimo are very likely to break their bad run here by earning at least a point from this match. To be on the safe side, we recommend to opt for a double chance for the home team to win or draw.
