Reason For Famalicao vs Maritimo Predictions

  • Famalicao have won their last 4 matches in all competitions.
  • Famalicao have won 5 of their 7 home games in the Primeira Liga.
  • Maritimo have lost 3 of their 7 away games in the Primeira Liga.
  • Famalicao have kept clean sheets in their last 4 matches and have scored an average of 2 goals per game.

Famalicao have impressed in their debut season in the top flight

Famalicao won 1-0 away at Pacos Ferreira in the Taca de Portugal in midweek, while Maritimo drew their last match 0-0 at home to Vitoria Guimaraes in the Primeira Liga. The newly-promoted club sit 11pts and 8 positions above Maritimo in the table heading into this weekends’ clash and boast an excellent home record.

The hosts have secured 5 wins from their 7 home games so far this season, only losing once, while Maritimo have lost 3 times on the road. Famalicao average 2.29 points per home game and have a win ratio of 71% while Maritimo average 1.14 points per away game which is below the league average of 1.20 points. The visitors have lost 43% of their away games in the league, scoring an average of under 1 goal per game and conceding an average of over 1.5 goals while Famalicao average 2.57 goals per home game, which is why we have backed a 2-0 win for the hosts this weekend.

Maritimo have struggled to score goals on the road

Only 29% of Maritimo’s away games have seen both teams score and just 43% of their away trips have produced over 2.5 goals, another reason we have backed a narrow 2-0 victory for the home side this Sunday. The visitors have only scored 5 goals away from home so far this season while Famailcao have netted 18 times in their own backyard, and it is this clear advantage in the goalscoring department that provides another key reason as to why we have backed a win for the hosts this weekend.

Famalicao have kept clean sheets in 29% of their home games so far and are yet to fail to score in front of their own fans, while Maritimo have failed to find the back of the net in 43% of their away games, adding further weight to our prediction for a 2-0 home win on Sunday. A majority of Maritimo’s defeats this season (4) have had a margin of 2 goals or more, while Famalicao have won by 2 goals or more on 4 separate occasions.

We’re confident that Famalicao will win on Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. The hosts have a great home record this season and head into the game as the clear form favourites. Maritimo have been average on the road and don’t possess the same level of consistency as their hosts, while their lack of goals on the road is of real concern.
