In the 20th matchday of the League, the Moreirense of Augusto Inácio moves to Madeira to play against Marítimo, a team that plays at home is always very difficult to beat. The Marítimo has recently been able to beat Barreiros and beat Sporting Lisbon. It is an expert team on set pieces and that in a situation of advantage manages to close well in its defensive midfield. The Moreirense throughout the year was quite irregular and continues to be so. In recent weeks managed to beat Benfica and Braga in neutral field and subsequently failed to beat the Feirense at home. He was without his two best players who went to Sporting and are in a weakened situation, reason why the favoritism is total for the Maritime.
In the first lap, the Marítimo was to win the Moreira de Cónegos 1-0.
Moreirense lost 70% of away games.
Of the 9 games played at home, the Islanders won more than half.
In the last 8 official games, Marítimo lost only 1, for the League Cup.
Moreira de Cónegos’ team lost their top two players in late January, Podence and Geraldes.
In spite of the recent conquest of the League Cup, Moreirense has not been able to carry to the championship the same display quality and results. In Barreiros it is always difficult to play, even for the big ones and we predict a victory for the Marítimo.
