Maritimo vs Sporting Lisbon Predictions
- Nine of Sporting Lisbon’s 13 Primeira Liga victories this season have been to nil.
- The visitors are unbeaten in their eight away league games this term, winning seven of those.
- Maritimo have only won two of their last nine home matches in the league.
Sporting to maintain winning momentum
Sporting sit four points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga standings and they are unbeaten in their 16 matches to date, winning 13 of those games.
Nine of those victories have been to nil, with Ruben Amorim’s side boasting by far and away the best defence in the division, as they have conceded just nine goals.
Only four of those goals have been let in on their travels, with Sporting remaining unbeaten away from home in the league, winning seven of their eight games to date.
By contrast, Maritimo have lost four of their last six matches across all competitions.
Milton Mendes’ side have particularly struggled on their own patch of late, as they have only won two of their last nine home league games and they have accumulated more points on their travels than at the Estadio do Maritimo.
Maritimo did claim a victory in their last home meeting with Sporting in the Taca de Portugal, but the visitors fielded a weakened side that day and it is the only defeat they have suffered in the last six clashes between the two sides.
We are certainly predicting a Sporting victory on Friday and given their strong defensive record we can see them winning to nil, which is why our prediction suggests a 2-0 away success.
