Porto will welcome CS Marítimo to Estádio Do Dragão for a matchday 20 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 22nd August 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twenty-three times in the most recent seasons. Porto has won 15 matches, and CS Marítimo triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.43 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.
Porto’s last game in the Portugal Liga NOS against Famalicão at home ended in a 3-1 win. Dragões had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Porto outplayed Famalicão in the second half and scored in the 25th, 37th and 78th minute.
CS Marítimo’s recent game against CF Os Belenenses ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points. CS Marítimo put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 45+5th minute.
Since the start of the season, Porto is more dominant at home. They have nine wins out of 9 games on home soil. Dragões’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 44% of home games.
CS Marítimo has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. CS Marítimo wins 1.10 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. CS Marítimo kept a clean sheet in just 20% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won nine consecutive matches. Porto is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in nine games.
CS Marítimo got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Sunday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Porto wins on average 3.00 points per home game, compared to 1.10 points per away game for CS Marítimo. My prediction is Porto to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.17 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 69% of Porto’s home and CS Marítimo’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 63% of Porto’s home and CS Marítimo’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
