Marítimo and Sporting CP meet at Estádio dos Barreiros, in a match for the 12th round of the Primeira Liga. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 6 head‑to‑heads they won 3, tied 2 and lost 1. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primeira Liga, on 15‑03‑2015, Sporting CP won by (0‑1). Adrien Silva (32' ) scored the only goal of the match. Marítimo registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Marítimo

The home team is currently in the 9th position of the league, with 14 points won, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Rio Ave, by (3‑2). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Nacional, by (3‑1). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last 5 home league matches Marítimo has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, so they have won 10 points out of 15 possible. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 11 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 7 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Marítimo come discouraged to this match after a 3-1 loss against Nacional. The forward Edgar Costa won't play for being punished after had been expelled in the last match. The giant Dyego Sousa is the most offensive reference of the home team, essential in the air play. 
Against a stronger team, it's predictable that Marítimo will explore the counter-attacks, maintaining low the block to try to take advantage from the opponent fault.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Salin, Dirceu, João Diogo, Deyvison, Patrick, G. Ghazaryan, Fransérgio, Alex Soares, Éber, Dyego Sousa, M. Marega.
Coach: Nelo Vingada.

Analysis of Sporting CP

The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 29 points won, after 9 wins and 2 draws. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Arouca, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Belenenses, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in away matches, with 27 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 31 goals scored and 12 conceded. Their last away match was for the UEFA Europa League and ended in a win by (2‑4) against Lokomotiv Moskva. In the last 6 away league matches Sporting CP has a record of 5 wins and 1 draw, so they have won 16 points out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 5 wins in the last matches and they haven't lost any of the last 6 away matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 10 of the last 11 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 6 of those 10 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 9 of them. In the last 5 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Sporting come motivated to this match after a 1-0 win against Belenenses, to the first portuguese step. The main absence of the home team is the algerian Slimani, that is punished by accumulation of yellow cards. 
It's foreseen that Sporting will choose the 4-4-2 approach, where the two responsible players to trigger the panic in the opponent defensive will be Montero and Teo Gutiérrez. 
Jefferson is in doubt to this match, by injury. 

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Paulo Oliveira, João Pereira, Ewerton, Jefferson, João Mário, William Carvalho, Adrien Silva, Gelson Martins, F. Montero, B. Ruiz.
Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match will be the existence of some goals. Looking to the historic between both teams and to the individual statistics, it's foreseen an open match and with good opportunities to score. Marítimo and Sporting are two teams that like to play an offensive approach, neglecting, sometimes, the defensive balance.
