Tip Reasoning

  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 64% of Santa Clara’s home games.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 71% of Maritimo’s away games.
  • Santa Clara have drawn three of their last six games in the Primeira Liga.

Santa Clara haven’t won in five matches against Maritimo

Santa Clara’s unbeaten run came to an end in Porto as they lost 1-0 against Boavista, a result which saw the two clubs swap places in the Primeira Liga table. Maritimo picked up a shock 2-0 win at home against Benfica on Monday night but still remain in the thick of a relegation battle.

These two sides drew 2-2 when they met in December for their reverse league fixture, with the hosts Maritimo going ahead early on but in the end needing a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser to rescue a share of the spoils. Santa Clara head into the duo’s latest encounter as the form favourite with two wins, three draws and just one defeat from their last six matches but both teams will be buoyed by their recent victories over Portuguese giants Benfica.

Both teams picked up shock wins against Benfica in June

Our prediction for under 2.5 goals to be produced in Friday’s clash carries plenty of weight when you analyse the recent head to head record between the two clubs and their performances at home and on the road so far this season. Five of the last seven encounters between these two clubs have seen under 2.5 goals scored and the same can be said for three of Santa Clara’s and four of Maritimo’s last six league games.

Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 64% of Santa Clara’s home games this season and in a whopping 71% of Maritimo’s away trips, so you can see just why we’re predicting a low-scoring 90-minutes on Friday. In terms of a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 1-1 draw at the Cidade do Futebol as the hosts have drawn three of their last six league games and the pair have drawn three of their last six Primeira Liga encounters against one another.

We’re expecting a close and competitive 90-minutes at the Cidade do Futebol

Santa Clara score an average of 0.93 goals per home game and concede 1.29 goals while Maritimo score an average of 0.57 goals per away game and concede 1.43 goals. Both teams have scored in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs in the Primeira Liga as well as in five of Santa Clara’s last six matches, which is why we feel a 1-1 draw is the most likely outcome this Friday.
