The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0

Match status: 2019/20 Primeira Liga - MatchWeek 26
Kick-off:
Venue: Estádio do Dragão (Porto)
Needless to say, the Greatest of the Islands are not living up to their nickname and will need to improve performance levels to stand any chances of retaining their top-flight status come the end of the season. So far, they do not seem on the right path to doing that.

Head coach Jose Gomes has come in for the stick for failing to get his side ticking, with many club supporters already calling for his sack. With pressure mounting on the Portuguese tactician, he will be looking to return to the drawing board to get his faltering side right back on track.

Meanwhile, FC Porto will be looking to regain their lead at the top of the table after losing grounds to defending champions Benfica last weekend. For that, they will need nothing but a win against this foe come kickoff. Expect a thrilling encounter between these sides at the Estadio do Dragao.

FC Porto vs Maritimo Team News

Just when the fans were beginning to celebrate a potential league title success, FC Porto slipped, letting everyone down in the process. The players will be kicking themselves for letting go of a healthy lead at the top of the table to defending champions Benfica.

On the road to Famalicao on the last matchday, FC Porto were deemed overwhelming favorites but ultimately fell short of expectations. Playing with a high press, the Dragons struggled to find a way past the opposition defense as the first half ended goalless.

Both sides struggling to create any major openings, we were made to endure a drab first forty-five with the players left frustrated by the lack of goal-mouth action. However, the game sprang into life after the restart with Famalicao firing themselves ahead in the 48th minute through a well-taken Fabio Martins goal.

The visitors responded well, throwing men forward in search of an equalizer – one that arrived inside 74 minutes – setting us up for a frantic end to the game. Pedro Goncalves turned savior for his side bagging the winning goal to clinch maximum points for Famalicao.

Maritimo, on the other hand, were held to a goalless draw by a spirited Vitoria Setubal side on home turf. Taking the lead just inside 11 minutes, Jose Gomes’ charged seemed a side on a winning mission. Following the goal, they got stuck in at the back as they looked to protect their lead.

As the clock wound down, Helder Guedes broke Maritimo’s hearts, firing home the equalizing goal to share the spoils at the Estadio do Maritimo. 
The Dragons have been impressive this campaign, sporting a supreme record bettered only by table-toppers Benfica. Also, they have scored 51 goals all season, just one shy off their stubborn arch-rivals Benfica.

The visiting contingent have failed to register a single win in nine of their preceding ten games across all competitions and have just a single away win of note since the start of the season. To make matters worse for Maritimo, they have recorded a total of three wins over the last 13-month period.

FC Porto vs Maritimo Predictions

When it comes to h2h encounters, the Dragons have maintained a winning status in 22 of their previous 24 meetings against this opposition, scoring no less than three goals in seven of their preceding twelve clashes on this ground. Also, Maritimo are sporting the lowest goalscoring numbers in the league, level with basement club Desportivo Aves.

This stats place FC Porto comfortably in the driving seat. Given they guard against complacency, they should have enough about themselves to see off this weak Maritimo side, scoring no less than three goals in the process. However, count on the visitors to register at least, one goal, before the end of the ninety minutes.
