Santa Clara vs Maritimo: Prediction
The team managed by Gomes are on a four-fixture losing run on the road, and they are on a seven-game winless streak away from home. They had also failed to score goals in five of their former six road games and in nine of their previous twelve such matches as well.
In fact, in the last ten months, they have a total of one win in away fixtures. They have also lost all of their games at this venue in against this rival since 2002, and have been winless in all but one match-up here since 1999.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in five of their preceding six overall games, and have lost just once at home in the past six months. Importantly, that defeat had come against Porto.
Considering these observations, it’s deduced that Santa Clara are about to deliver a winning performance this Friday.
