Maritimo Preview – Can Maritimo win three on trot?

Following recent wins against Belenenses 1-0 at home and a 3-1 win on the road at Rio Ave, Sunday’s hosts, Maritimo, will be aiming to make it three league wins on the trot when they take on lowly Boavista at their Estádio dos Barreiros.

These two welcome wins have also helped lift Maritimo up into the top half of the Primeira Liga where they occupy 9th place but defeats have still outweighed their wins so far in this campaign and this is indicated in their last eight matches overall.

Just two wins out of these eight matches have seen Maritimo struggle in the top flight and this poor sequence of results also include losing five of these eight matches too; Maritimo also possess an inconsistent looking home record of 2-1-2 5/5 but goals have been a little thin on the ground and each of the previous four meetings against Boavista have all resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Boavista Preview – Can Boavista hold their own?

Having failed to win any of their last five matches overall in the Primeira Liga, Sunday’s visitors, Boavista, find themselves in the relegation play-off spot prior to this tricky outing to face Maritimo and with just one win out of their last 16 matches overall in the Portuguese top flight, this doesn’t bode well for Boavista.

That rare win came in a shock 3-0 home win over Benfica back in early November but the visitors have since struggled, losing against Farense and Sporting Braga and being held to three draws in-between the losses.

Boavista have also struggled on their travels too as the visitors have now gone 10 away matches without a win, so the prospects of an away win here do seem remote.
