Braga to Win

Maritimo suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Sporting Lisbon on the final day of last season. The start to the 2021/22 campaign has not gone according to the plan as they were dumped out of the League Cup by Boavista. Braga too enters this fixture on the back of a defeat to Sporting in the Super Cup. They will be looking to set the record straight and put that result behind them. They have won on three of their last four trips to the Estadio do Maritimo and will be looking to stretch that run to four in five.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both sides failed to score in the competitive start to the new season. The foolhardy defence of Sporting Lisbon was the bane of Braga, while Maritimo were shut out by Boavista in familiar surroundings. The last time these teams met, a 1-0 scoreline was witnessed in favour of the hosts, who had a similar result on opening day last campaign. With both sides struggling to score and having low scoring results in history against each other and at this juncture, this fixture should finish with Under 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score: No

Boavista knocked out Maritimo from the League Cup with a 0-1 result. Braga conceded a goal more in their Super Cup defeat. With both sides struggling to score and conceding clean sheets to their rivals, it looks unlikely that this trend will be broken in the coming fixture. The fact that a clean sheet was witnessed in their most recent H2H duel also adds credence to this eventuality.

Maritimo vs Braga Fixture Preview

CS Maritimo

The Madeira based outfit were on the cusp of relegation in the previous campaign and the club’s faithful will not want a repeat of it this time around. Julio Velázquez will have strict orders to ensure the safety of Maritimo in the Portuguese top-flight football. They have started poorly in this regard after being knocked out of the League Cup in the First Round. The fact that they failed to trouble the scorers also shows poorly on their ambitions for the coming campaign.

SC Braga

The Arsenalists had their weaponry malfunction in the Super Cup defeat to Sporting Lisbon. As they turn their attention to the Primeira Liga, they will need to give a better account of their abilities. They have failed to win in their last four away trips and even Maritimo have a better H2H record with three wins in five fixtures while hosting them.  Their attacking unit has been undone in these meetings and the onus will be on Abel Ruiz and co to give a better account of their abilities.
