Read all of our free predictions, team analysis and betting tips for Marítimo vs Santa Clara


Betting prediction:

In what will be an island “derby”, Marítimo will try to return to the victories, foreseeing a more offensive stance on the part of Milton Mendes’ gang, before a Santa Clara alternating between a stance where they try to fight for every bit of the field and another more focused on the defensive moment and the quick transition to attack. Each with their own style, both teams should be able to create good opportunities to score, especially because Marítimo needs to win.

Betting tip

Both teams score? Yes

Match preview

Marítimo and Santa Clara face at Estádio dos Barreiros, in a match for the 18th round of the Primeira Liga. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 20‑09‑2020, Santa Clara got a home win by (2‑0). The head‑to‑head history of the last 3 years favours the home team, since in the last 5 matches they won 3, tied 1 and lost 1. Santa Clara registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Marítimo

The home team is currently in the 11th position of the league, with 17 points won, after 5 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Vitória SC, by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Sporting CP, by (0‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins and 9 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 21 conceded; against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 16 conceded. For the league, Marítimo won 8 points out of 24 possible points, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in the last 8 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 8 of their 17 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

The Marítimo team has been making a globally balanced campaign for their fight for maintenance, reaching the 18th round of the Liga NOS in the 11th place of the leaderboard, with 17 points, one behind Nacional da Madeira and Tondela, and only three above the relegation zone. Last Friday, the team coached by Brazilian Milton Mendes aggravated their results crisis, with their fourth consecutive loss (the third in Liga NOS), against Sporting (0-2), with two goals opening each one of the halves of the match, in a match where Marítimo managed little or nothing to disturb the opponent’s goal.

Confirmed Lineup: Caio Secco, Marcelo Hermes, Lucas Áfrico, Zainadine Júnior, Jean, Tim Soderstrom, Felicio Milson, Jorge Correa, Pedro Pelágio, Joel Tagueu, Ruben Macedo.

Analysis of Santa Clara

The away team is currently in the 7th position of the league, with 22 points won, after 6 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Belenenses, by (2‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Farense, by (1‑1). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 24 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 18 goals scored and 18 conceded. In the last 9 away league matches Santa Clara has a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 27 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 14 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (31’‑45′).

The Santa Clara team has managed to stand out among the lot of candidates for the fight for maintenance and reaches the first round of the second turn of the championship in the 7th place in the overall leaderboard, with 22 points, one than Moreirense and with an eight point advantage for the relegation zone. Last Thursday, the team led by Daniel Ramos reached the third consecutive match without knowing the taste of defeat in championship matches, by leaving with a point in their belt on the visit to the field of Farense (1-1). Despite leaving for the halftime break at a disadvantage, Santa Clara reacted well in the second 45 minutes and reached the tie relatively quickly (63’), in a penalty kick by Carlos Júnior.

Confirmed Lineup: Marco Pereira, Rafael Ramos, Fabio Cardoso, Mansur, Mikel Villanueva, Hidemasa Morita, Anderson Carvalho, Diogo Salomão, Lincoln, Crysan, Carlos.
Coach: Daniel Ramos.
