Thoughts on FC Porto vs CS Marítimo
FC Porto since the last matchweek have fallen off the leader’s chair and currently sit in the 2nd place. Lack of offensive efficiency, poor Marchesin’s performance in goal and playing without their defensive pillars Alex Telles and Iván Marcano has massively impacted their play against Famalicão. Porto, as looking for the redemption, moves on to another match. The opponents, CS Marítimo, have never won against the hosts when playing away and with their current form it’s unlikely to see things change. Will the Dragons rise from the ashes to secure a big win in their redemption?
FC Porto now chasing Benfica on goal difference
Liga NOS return has not been so colourful for Dragons. Not only were they defeated 2-1 by Famalicão, but also moved into 2nd place as their biggest rivals SL Benfica progressed into 1st. The remaining fixtures will be very crucial in the title race as both of the teams are currently on 60 points in the league. The pressure is bigger than usual.
The statistics prove that Porto performs a lot better at home. The team has lost only once and conceded only six goals, which is the lowest this season. Moreover, they have never failed to score when playing at Estádio do Dragão by averaging 2.17 goals per game. The club has the biggest home PPG in the league with 2.58.
CS Marítimo fearfully looking at the relegation zone
Marítimo is currently sitting in 15th place with 25 points so far. The Green-and-Reds have drawn 1-1 with second-least scoring team in the League Vitória de Setúbal last time out. They also haven’t won any away game since 5th January. The team has been performing very poorly lately. They have won only one game out of last 10 played.
The statistics are not looking very promising for the Marítimo side either. They are the most inefficient team when it comes to scoring in away games. The team has found the net only six times in 12 games as visitors. However, they have shockingly conceded only 16 goals in 12 away games. The team is averaging 0.83 PPG and it’s very unlikely to see them change things around when playing with a top team like FC Porto.
