Maritimo vs Vizela
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Tuesday, 28 December 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio dos Barreiros (Funchal).
Maritimo will be hoping to rebound from a tough 7-1 defeat at Benfica on Tuesday evening when they play host to recently-promoted Vizela in the 16th round of Primeira Liga.
The hosts, who barely saved the elite class status last season, currently hold the 10th position in the Primeira Liga ladder.
They are just one point above Vizela and only three points adrift of the red zone, meaning this game is massive for both these outfits.
Both Maritimo and Tondela have suddenly begun to play more attacking-minded football in the last several weeks.
We have thus seen 13 goals in Maritimo’s last two league outings. They saw off Santa Clara 4-1 at home before falling 7-1 at Benfica last time out.
On the other side, Vizela played three consecutive league fixtures with at least four goals scored.
They lost two of these three, 4-1 at Braga and 0-4 to Porto respectively. Vizela, however, managed to eliminate Sporting Braga out of Portuguese Cup with a 1-0 victory five days ago.
Considering both teams’ form, we have reasons to expect goals on Tuesday. Maritimo lost just one of the last four league games and they will go into this on the back of two straight wins at home.
Vizela won only one of the last twelve league fixtures but they have also lost only two of the last seven matches in all competitions.
