Aves vs Vitoria Setubal
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 20th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Estádio do CD das Aves (Vila das Aves).
Seldom does the bottom-most team in a league, approaches a game as favorites. But that is the case in this tie. Notwithstanding Vitoria’s respectable mid-table position in the table, they have been the absolute worst group if recent form is considered. They have been winless in their last eight match-days, and six of them were losses.
In their last five games in the league, the team has managed a paltry two goals for them. That figure represents the lowest number of goals scored in the last five match-days.
Jose Mota’s men have been the least impressive of the lot if the whole season is considered, but this peculiar situation allows them to have the upper hand. Their recent form and home advantage will be the biggest deciding factors in determining the result of this tie.

Aves vs Vitoria Setubal Prediction
Lito Vidigal’s men have scored a total of two goals in their last eight overall games. They have been winless in all eight of them and had a six-match losing run during this stretch as well.
Unquestionably, this team has been the most incompetent in the Primeira Liga in the last few match-days. And on top of that, they are once more on the road, where they have suffered the most.
The team from Vila das Aves is the dead-last squad in league standings. But they have been unbeaten in six of their last ten games. Also, one thing that stands out if we analyze the team’s games is that they know how to take advantage of a fellow struggling side. It can be seen from their wins against Rio Ave and Chaves.
Expect the hosts to avoid a loss at any cost, and to win at least one half.
