Vitoria Guimaraes vs Maritimo
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 4 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques, Guimaraes
Vitoria Guimaraes have beaten Portimonense and held Vitoria Setubal to a 1-1 draw in their last two outings, hosting Maritimo for their Matchday 24 clash hoping to build on the streak and catch up with the top 4 – now sitting ten points behind 4th placed Sporting CP.
Os Vimaranenses have struggled for consistency at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques but holding Porto to a goalless draw in early February will surely be a confidence booster as well, as Luis Castro looks to build on their defensive consistency and keep the clean sheets coming.
Maritimo have struggled to score goals and just a goal scored in a narrow win at Belenenses in their last five outings will hardly be a great push forward, seeing Sporting CP deny them in a goalless draw at Estadio dos Barreiros on Monday. They will now want more but getting it in Guimaraes will be no easy task, despite solid performances on the road lately – where just three goals proved enough for nine points in four trips.
Vitoria Guimaraes vs Maritimo: Head-to-head
Guimaraes snatched a 1-3 win at Estádio dos Barreiros earlier this term, with goals from Alexandre Guedes and Andre Andre.
Os Vimaranenses have thus earned three wins in the last five head-to-head clashes, with just one loss suffered along the way.
We’ve seen goals on both ends in all of the last three matchups between the sides.
Vitoria Guimaraes vs Maritimo: Prediction
We will now back Vitoria Guimaraes to secure all three points and keep up their streak in head-to-head clashes too, going for a Home win at 1.80 and hoping for another confident display at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques which could see them close in to European competitions next term.
We feel we should still be in for a very narrow occasion and going for Under 2.5 goals FT looks like banker material at 1.57! We have seen both sides enjoy some very narrow clashes over the past couple of weeks, which points to the same claim as well.
