Famalicao vs Vitoria Setubal Prediction

Famalicao have been hit by a sharp decline in form in the top flight, which has seen them admit back to back defeats in their past three fixtures. Their previous outing saw them at the losing end of a thumping 4-0 scorecard to Benfica. Prior to that, Tondela edged past them at home with a narrow 3-2 victory.

Be that as it may, the hosts did pull off a comfortable 3-0 win over Mafra in their most recent clash in the Taca de Portugal. It is also worth mentioning that two out of the last three defeats for them came in their clashes on the road. At home, the hosts have stumbled just once this term.

With twenty-four points in the bag, the home side are currently sitting fourth in the league.

On the other hand, Vitoria Setubal are unbeaten in their past three games in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 2-2 draw alongside Benfica in the Portugal League Cup. However, to be frank, the visiting contingent have been dismal on the road, to say the least.

So far, they have managed just one measly win away from home, that too against the struggling Pacos Ferreira by a slender one-goal margin.

In sharp contrast, Familicao have dropped points on just two occasions in front of the home crowd. Hence, given the home advantage at hand, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the hosts this weekend.

Furthermore, despite showing promise here, the home side have not looked organized at the back. Disappointingly, they have kept a clean sheet just once so far, and have conceded ten goals in the process as well.

Meanwhile, the guests have had their scoring boots on in their recent outings. They have found the back of the net four times from their past three trips on the road alone.

With Famalicao evidently guilty of possessing a leaky defense, count on Vitoria Setubal to grab a consolation goal.
