While the visitors sit in bottom place, Maritimo head into this encounter on the back of five games without success, four of which have ended in defeat.
After earning promotion from the second tier, few people will be too surprised to see Farense occupy the last spot in the table at this stage of the campaign.
Nevertheless, Leoes de Faro have been much improved in recent matches with five points coming from as many matches, their two defeats coming by narrow scorelines to Rio Ave and Braga.
Sergio Vieira will want to turn performances into results as soon as possible, but he will be satisfied that his team only sit four points adrift of 10th spot.
Victory on Monday would represent a second win in three games, and Scottish playmaker Ryan Gauld will be key to any success after already contributing two goals and three assists this season.
From Maritimo's perspective, they head into their next fixture as the worst-performing side over the last five contests, their only point coming against Nacional.
That has led to Lito Vidigal being removed from his position in the dugout, and a caretaker boss will be named ahead of Monday's game.
Vidigal had witnessed his team take an early lead against Benfica in their last match, only for the Portuguese giants to net either side of half time to secure the three points.
While the positives would have taken the positives from that encounter, another setback at Estadio de Sao Luís could leave Maritimo in the relegation zone.

Pedro Henrique is back in contention for Farense after serving a three-match ban.
However, the forward is yet to start a game this season, likely leaving Nikola Stojiljkovic to lead the line.
Nevertheless, whoever is in charge for this game is unlikely to make too many alterations to the starting XI.
SC Farense possible starting lineup:
Defendi; Pinto, Martins, Falcao, Felipe; Isidoro, Oudrhiri; Gauld, Aouacheria, Mansilla; Stojiljkovic
Maritimo possible starting lineup:
Abedzadeh; Winck, Andrade, Junior, Rene, China; Macedo, Bambock, Pelagio, Costa; Pinho
We say: SC Farense 1-1 Maritimo
Having recently pushed Benfica and Braga, Farense will be confident that results will eventually go their way on a regular basis. However, we feel that Maritimo will do enough to claim a share of the spoils on Monday evening, building on their performance against Benfica last weekend.
