Marítimo VS Porto

Marítimo vs Porto

  • 2 - 1
  • Played


Marítimo and Porto play at Estádio dos Barreiros this Wednesday to the League Cup Semi-Finals.
The home team hasn't revealed any consistency lately. In their last eight matches they only won twice. In the last match of League Cup they won 0-1 at Gil Vicente. Marítimo is currently at the 11th place of Portuguese League with 31 points. 
Porto is showing his real value lately. In their last seven matches they have won six times. They have been stopped in the last match 1-1 by Nacional, in a Portuguese league clash. At the moment, they are at the second place of the league with 62 points.

The away team has a natural advantadge at the head-to-head, but curiously Marítimo has won two of the last three.

Analysis of Marítimo

The portuguese attacker Diego Costa should be motivated after scoring the equaliser for Marítimo in the last match of Portuguese League. He is very quick and finishes pretty well. He has four goals this season.
Marítimo should pretend to explore more often the left flank trying to use Rúben Ferreira's capacity to go forward from the left back.
The brazilian Fransérgio is one of the most important players at the middle of the pitch. And despite playing far away from the opposite goal, he has already striked four times this season.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Salin, João Diogo, P. Bauer, Raúl Silva, Rúben Ferreira, Bruno Gallo, Alex Soares, Danilo Pereira, Edgar Costa, António Xavier, M. Marega.
Coach: Ivo Vieira.

Analysis of Porto

As usual in this competition, Julen Lopetegui will use many players that normally are substitutes, so they'll present a similar team to the one who played against Académica.
Porto will play in his 4-3-3 formation with lots of possession, high pressure and good offensive variety.
At the front, Gonçalo Paciência will replace Jackson. The young portuguese forward will have his second opportunity to convince Julen Lopetegui. He has scored against Académica to the League Cup and pretends to repeat it at Madeira Island.
At the middle of the pitch, Lopetegui has to opt between Quintero, Rúben Neves, Herrera, Óliver, Evandro and Campaña. Evandro was sent off at the second fixture of League Cup but should mantain the manager´s confidence.
At the back, Porto keeps showing some lacks of concentration in his inexperienced defence. And the return of Helton should be a great help to organize it better defensively.

Confirmed Lineup: Maicon, Cote, Ivan Marcano, Ricardo Pereira, Ricardo Quaresma, Óliver Torres, Evandro, Casemiro, V. Aboubakar, Hernâni.
Coach: Helton, Lopetegui.

Betting suggestion:

We expect some goals at this match. Even considering that Marítimo might play defensively because of team's quality diferences, they know that at some moment will have his opportunity to counter attack.
