Reigning champions Sporting travel to Estádio dos Barreiros in their Portuguese Primeira Liga fixture as they take on Maritimo on Saturday.

Maritimo suffered a narrow 1-0 loss in their home fixture against Famalicao in their previous outing, conceding an early goal, but remained in eighth place in the league standings.

Sporting returned to winning ways after a 5-0 thumping in the Champions League at Manchester City with a 3-0 win over Estoril Praia. They remain six points behind league leaders Porto and need to avoid dropping points.

Maritimo vs Sporting Prediction

The hosts have scored just three goals in their last six home games and just three of their seven wins this term have come at home. Leões have the best defensive record in the league (15 goals conceded) and are the favorites here. They should be able to secure a narrow win.

Prediction: Maritimo 0-1 Sporting
