Moreirense vs Maritimo Prediction

The Green and Whites secured a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, against Benfica. It was their fifth unbeaten fixture on the trot, and especially since it was against one of the best teams in the competition – the players are high in confidence.

Elsewhere, the Lions of Almirante Reis lost 1-2 at home, against Braga. It was their second loss in a row, fourth from the past six fixtures, and took their tally to 17 winless matches from the past 20 games.

Current form alone dictates to whom the upper hand goes – the Green and Whites. Since September of last year, there has been a single league loss for the team other than against a top-tier squad. In addition, at present they are on a five-fixture invincible run, and at home, they have lost just four times this whole season. 

To make things further clearer – three of these losses had come in the league, and against the top-three teams in the table, while the fourth defeat had come in the domestic cup. On top of that, home teams have always been dominant in h2h clashes, and the last time these two met at this venue, the Lions had lost, and that too without scoring a goal.

Moreover, the Lions were winless in 17 of their prior 20 overall fixtures, and were so in 11 of their last 12 on the road. They have also secured a total of four wins away from home in the prior 13-month period. Taking these stats into account, it’s evident that Moreirense are the clear favorites to post the three points this Sunday.
