Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction

Guimaraes sit in 6th place in the Portuguese top flight but have a 13-point margin to make up on 4th placed Sporting CP ahead of tonight’s action, so it looks like the hosts will have to make do with finishing as high as they can in the Primeira Liga without a European spot to look forward to.

Nevertheless, Guimaraes have lost just once in their last five league matches which was a 1-0 loss away from home at Tondela, but recent wins against Feirense and Portimonense along with draws against 2nd placed Porto and Vitoria Setubal should give them plenty of confidence at home against Maritimo tonight.

Vitoria Guimaraes have also been pretty solid so far this season at their Estádio Dom Afonso Henriques as they possess a record of 6-3-2 12/6 which includes just one defeat from their last 10 league matches on home turf.

In addition, Guimaraes have kept six clean sheets out of their 11 home matches so far this term, and their success at home has been built upon this solid defensive unit as they possess the best defensive record at home in the Primeira Liga.


Key-Facts – Guimaraes v Maritimo

  • Vitoria Guimaraes have lost just 1of their last 10 home matches
  • Vitoria Guimaraes possess the best defensive record at home in the Primeira Liga
  • Maritimo have failed to score in 5 of their 12 away matches to date


Maritimo Prediction

By contrast, Maritimo sit in a lowly 15th place in the top flight and are now perched just one point above the relegation zone as they make their way over to Guimaraes for this important Monday night fixture in the Primeira Liga.

The visitors have managed just one win out of their last five matches overall which was a 1-0 win away at Belenenses, but recent defeats to Rio Ave, Chaves and Desportivo Aves have meant that Maritimo will be sweating it out over the next few weeks as they look to claw their way out of the immediate relegation danger.

Recent results away from home have been encouraging though as Maritimo have won three out of their last four matches on their travels with wins recorded at Boavista, Santa Clara and Belenenses, all of whom possess a worst home record than Vitoria Guimaraes though.

Maritimo’s away record stands at an inconsistent looking 4-1-7 7/13 which includes a lack of goals on the road, and indeed, the visitors have failed to score in 5 of their 12 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Vitoria Guimares are a pretty consistent unit at home and although Maritimo have recorded recent wins on the road, the hosts should edge this one.
