Belenenses to win the game

Belenenses will be hoping to continue their good home run against Maritimo after managing a victory from the last two encounters at Estádio Nacional. Belenenses have especially been not providing Maritimo with any hope from recent encounters. Both teams had a difficult start to the season after facing top teams, but the fixture for Belenenses was especially difficult. The consistency achieved under Petit would actually help the home team come up with a positive result.

Total goals under 2.5

This is a fixture that has frequently witnessed a less number of goals. A remarkable five out of the last six meetings between these two teams – including the most recent one in April 2021 – have produced less than 2.5 goals. In fact, there have been some matches with less than 1.5 goals in total. Maritimo do not look in a great scoring form and this game could end up being a low scoring match once again.

Belenenses to score 1st in the game

Belenenses have been able to score the opening goal in the last two home matches against Maritimo, who have failed to score on both these occasions. In fact, Maritimo have managed a grand total of just one goal in the last two years of playing away against Belenenses.

Belenenses vs Maritimo: Match Preview and Team News

Belenenses

Belenenses are likely to come into this game with a very young starting lineup that has an average age of less than 24. Even then, home advantage coupled with the psychological edge over Maritimo should keep Belenenses in the hunt for three points. Petit is unlikely to go for any changes to the formation and the starting lineup could also be similar to the opening game against Porto given the lack of injuries.

Maritimo

Maritimo have been quite poor when it comes to games against Belenenses. Coach Julio Velázquez knows that he will be without Stefano Beltrame      and Joel Tagueu for this match. However, the return of Pedro Pelagio will be a boost for the visitors.
