Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET

Sporting CP managed to hold fierce rivals Benfica to a goalless draw last weekend. Such score line suited them best and the Lions now have the match-point in the battle for the Champions League football next term. They only need a victory over Maritimo on Sunday evening to book the second-place finish, regardless of what Benfica do against Moreirense at home at the same time.

Nevertheless, beating Maritimo at Estadio dos Barreiro has been quite a huge challenge for most of the sides in Portugal this term. Only Porto out of the big four managed to get away with points from Funchal, and it was only a narrow 0-1 victory coming late in the game. Nevertheless, Maritimo will by no means come into the last round’s clash in high spirits after losing three on the trot in the league.

Maritimo vs Sporting CP: Head-to-head

The Lions completely dominated this match-up over the history, winning 39, drawing 7 and losing only 7 of 53 ties against Maritimo.

Sporting did not have many troubles storming past Maritimo in the history of clashes at Estadio dos Barreiros either, winning 17 of 24 encounters there.

Moving forward, Sporting Lisbon destroyed Maritimo 5-0 when the teams met in early-January this year at Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Maritimo vs Sporting CP: Prediction

Sporting were on a streak of six straight wins across competitions before drawing 0-0 to Benfica last weekend and they will enter the game as huge form favourites. Maritimo are winless in last five league outings and they lost all of past three, conceding four to Chaves away from home last weekend.

Jorge Jesus will not have any significant issues through injuries or suspensions, meaning e could expect him to use pretty much the same squad which fought team’s way to a goalless draw against Benfica. With a huge prize to aim for and a much better form coming into the game, we just can’t see the Lions dropping the ball here. The visitors should be in control from the first minute and we’ll back them to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.85.
