Vitoria Guimaraes vs CS Maritimo begins 04.03.2019 at 21:15 CET
Guimaraes is positioned in the upper half of the table and that was expected. What is problem is backlog behind first five teams, meaning Guimaraes will hardly reach European positions. They were eliminated from the Portuguese Cup in the quarter-finals and what was left to do is to play league matches without much or any imperative. They play variably lately; victories come after defeats and draws, and vice versa. It is interesting that all seven defeats this season were suffered by one goal difference, mostly 1-0. Guimaraes paid through the nose for away defeat with Setubal in the previous round as Henrique, Teixeira and Wakas earned suspensions.
Probable lineups Vitoria Guimaraes: Douglas – Sacko, Bueno, Venancio, Soaares – Amoah, Pepe, Mattheus – Toze, Guedes, Davidson
Maritimo has plenty of problems this season and it played well only at the beginning of season after which came a significant downfall in performances. They had 11-game winless streak that includes only two draws. They ended it with three consecutive victories but in five previous rounds Maritimo again has modest results. Two rounds ago they won Belenenses away by 1-0 and that was the first goal after three goalless rounds. In the previous round Maritimo played a goalless draw but with Sporting, which is a good result. They don’t have bigger problems with absences and only China is on the list of injured players.
Probable lineups CS Maritimo: Charles – Nanu, Grolli, Junior, Ferreira – Rene – Costa, Vukovic, Pelagio, Barrera – Getterson
