Foot Predictions shows the Premier League clash on Tuesday between Tondela and Maritimo, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Tondela entertain Maritime in the Portuguese Premier League on Tuesday night, with both sides trying to end their recent bad form.
The home team suffered a 2-1 defeat on the last trip to Rio Ave, while Milton Mendes’s men were expelled by Santa Clara.
The formation of Estádio João Cardoso has struggled lately, adding just three points out of 12 possible and losing consecutive games before this midweek encounter.
With 18 points won after 18 games of the campaign, CDT Auriverdes occupies 12th position, just two points above the relegation zone.
Scoring many goals has been the main problem for Pako Ayestaranof men this season. Their defensive record is the third worst in the division and needs to be corrected if they want to stop the fall towards the relegation zone.
Tondela will see in this match the perfect opportunity to return to the victories and put some breathing space between themselves and the last three, but their opponent will have similar plans.
Marítimo is going through a difficult time, having lost the last five games in all competitions.
The penalty Diederrick Joel Tagueu dispatched last time was his team’s first goal in more than 330 minutes of action in the Premier League.
The recent fall caused them to plummet in the championship standings and the Estádio do Marítimo team is now just one point above Portimonense, which occupies the relegation playoff spot.
Only one point and one spot separate these two teams, and both will have ambitions to secure an important victory on Tuesday, in what could be a crucial match in both clubs’ respective seasons.
Tondela First League Form: LWLWLL
First League Maritime Form: LWLLLL
Maritime Form (all competitions): WLLLLL
All news from the teams
20 year old goalkeeper Joel Sousa will be unavailable to Tondela on Tuesday after the young man returned a positive result from the COVID-19 test and is having to isolate himself.
He is the only one absent from Ayestaran, however, and the Spanish coach could change things due to his team’s struggle for form.
Maritime will have to survive without the services of Rodrigo Pinho after the striker suffered an ankle injury earlier in the month and was unable to recover in time for the latter.
Striker Tagueu scored his first goal in six games against Santa Clara and hopes it will be the start of a way to score goals that alleviates his team’s anxieties in front of the goal.
Possible initial lineup of Tondela:
Niasse; Ferreira, Suarez, Medioub, Bebeto; Grade; Murillo, Pedro, Augusto, Archangel; Barbosa
Possible initial lineup of the Maritimo:
Secco; Soderstrom, Junior, Africo, Hermes; Pelagio, Jean, Correa; Macedo, Joel, Milson
Probability: Tondela 2-1 Maritimo
This must be a close dispute between two teams that desperately need some points and a positive performance. We hope that Tondela will win at home and leave the visitors with a complicated task in the second half of the season.
