Marítimo form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Marítimo so far with only 9 points returning home. The records show 3-0-7 (win-draw-lose). It's looking increasingly bleak for Marítimo who now has to deal with a six game losing streak. Gil Vicente was the last time a defeat was avoided. The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Marítimo have lost on their last two travels.

Marítimo might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Porto proved too strong as Marítimo slumped to a 1-2 defeat in front of their own fans at Estádio dos Barreiros. A 1-2 defeat away at Tondela before that.

Marítimo were so close to getting something from the game against Porto, but ended up with egg all over their face after conceding the deciding goal three minutes into overtime.
