- Win to Nil – Sporting to Win to Nil @ 6/5 (2.2)
- Anytime Goalscorer – Pote (Odds not available yet)
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Under 2.5 Goals
When Sporting CP and Maritimo last met in September, it took a last-minute Pedro Porro penalty to separate the teams in a 1-0 triumph for the defending Primeira Liga champions and Saturday’s rematch could be just as tight. Six of Maritimo’s last eight home fixtures produced under 2.5 goals with just three efforts notched in their last three home assignments alone. Bettors should expect slim margins this weekend where a stake on under 2.5 goals looks a wise choice again.
Sporting to Win to Nil
Sporting’s narrow 1-0 victory over Maritimo last year was their second win to nil against the islanders in three previous meetings and the Lisbon giants could keep their opponents off the scoresheet again on Saturday. Maritimo have failed to register in each of their last two home tussles and Sporting hold the Primeira Liga’s best defensive record this term having conceded just 15 times in 23 fixtures.
Pote to Score Anytime
Sporting star Pote found the net against Estoril last weekend, bagging his third goal in five league appearances for the title holders and the 23-year-old is one to watch again on Saturday. Remarkably, Pote rattled home five goals in his last two appearances against Maritimo and the prolific attacker can punish the same defence this weekend.
Maritimo vs Sporting CP: Match Preview and Team News
Despite winning just one of their last five matches in the Primeira Liga, Maritimo are still clinging to their top half status and a highest finish since their sixth-placed berth in 2016 still looks possible this term. O Maior das Ilha have won just three times in 11 attempts at the Estádio dos Barreiros however, and Head Coach Vasco Seabra will be targeting an improvement on home soil.
Sporting CP recovered from their humbling 5-0 reverse at home to Manchester City in the Champions League with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Estoril last time out, however, the six-point gap to Porto at the summit of the Primeira Liga is starting to look huge. The defending champions have only lost twice in 23 league fixtures in 2021/22, though the chances of Ruben Amorim masterminding another title-winning miracle are starting to look slimmer.
