Venue: Estádio dos Barreiros (Funchal)
The home side have been pretty meagre so far this season, struggling to get positive results on board with a number of lackluster displays on show. The seasonal mid-table outfit currently sit 15th on the standings and are just eight points away from the drop-zone.

Indeed, Jose Gomes’ side have emerged as surprise relegation candidates and will be required to turn a corner to steer further away from the drop-zone. With a long way to go till the close of the season, there is still a whole lot at stake. Surely, Maritimo will hope to retain their top-flight status once the season’s curtains draw close.

Vitoria Setubal have been enjoying a better campaign than their opposition, sporting a four-point lead over Maritimo on the log. They have shown glimpses of brilliance at times and look good value for their current league position.

With a game against relegation-threatened Maritimo on the cards, the visiting contingent will be looking to secure a positive result to climb further up the standings. For that, they will be required to turn in a performance of the highest quality.

Maritimo vs Vitoria Setubal Team News

Last time out in the league, Maritimo were on the road to take on Moreirense in a fiercely-contested affair. O Maior das Ilhas were deemed underdogs for the match and were not expected to come away with anything meaningful.

However, they headed into the game in high spirits, hoping to stage an unlikely upset against Moreirense. Despite their huge ambitions, Maritimo remained on the back foot for large portions of the game and never really got going.

Ultimately, they headed back home empty-handed as they were hammered 0-2 by Vitor Campelos’ charges, plunging them further into the drop-zone. The travelling supporters were left disappointed as they made their way home after watching their side falter once again.

Vitoria Setubal, on the other hand, were handed the difficult task of securing a positive result against defending champions Benfica on home turf. As expected, Benfica dominated proceedings throughout the game but failed to find the all-deciding winning goal.

The home side laid blood and sweat bare on the pitch in a bid to frustrate the Eagles – an act they carried out to perfection. Ultimately, Julio Velazquez’s charges snatched a point from the jaws of their title-chasing foes, posting an impressive 1-1 score on the board.

For this fixture, Vitoria Setubal have to be considered slight favorites for the win. They have been in decent form this season, steamrolling their way through a number of difficult oppositions. They surely have enough about themselves to see off the threat of Maritimo.

That said, it is important to note that the visitors have remained winless in each of their previous six games on the bounce – two of those ending in defeat. Also, they have recorded more draws than wins this campaign.

Meanwhile, Maritimo are on a horrific three-game losing run in the league and have lost ten of their 24 games this season. They have weighed in with only five wins along the way. Also, they have registered 22 goals and have allowed ten more down the other end of the pitch.
