Tondela vs Maritimo
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 9 February 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estádio João Cardoso (Tondela).
Both teams are struggling hard for points. The long run of unimpressive performances have started to make both sets of fans unhappy, and as either team will be considering the other a weak opponent, Tondela as well as Maritimo will play for the win. Coupling this with weak defense on each side, we are in line for a goal-fest.

Tondela vs Maritimo Prediction
Tondela recorded a 0-1 win away from home the prior game week, against Portimonense. It was their first win in six games. However, fact remains that the victory had come against a relegation-battler. This cannot be considered as a return to form, unless they keep the momentum going on.
Meanwhile, Maritimo lost 1-2 at home, and that too against the worst team in the competition, Aves. The loss has once again cemented the fact that Maritimo are on crisis mode.
This Sunday, a win is of utmost importance for both. And as mentioned earlier, both teams will play for the three points. They simply have no other option. Tondela were winless in nine of their last ten home games, while Maritimo were so in 14 of their previous 16 fixtures. On the road, Maritimo stood winless in nine of their past ten trips too.
Coupling the desperation for win with this absolute disaster of defense on both sides, we are easily on course to witness a high-scoring game. Moreover, every single h2h match at this venue in the past decade had goals from both teams, and only one of those had failed to have three or more goals.
As such, expect the BTTS & Over 1.5 Match Goals to bring good returns this Sunday.
