FC Porto vs Vitoria Setubal
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 23 April 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao (Porto)
Porto host Vitoria Setubal for their Matchday 31 clash on Monday evening, just days after suffering a disappointing Taca de Portugal loss to Sporting CP in semi-finals. They sit at the top of the Primeira Liga table with a 0-1 win at Benfica seen last week and we don’t believe they will be disappointed ahead of this fixture as Sergio Conceicao’s men come desperate for points to build on the tally.
Vitoria Setubal will also not be the same sort of a challenge, sitting in the bottom part of the table and coming into the match after several unconvincing displays. They’ve seen a 1-2 loss to Benfica in early April and failed to bounce back at Guimaraes, seeing out just a 1-1 draw which has them in the danger of ending up in the relegation zone with a loss at Estadio Do Dragao.
Dragons have been very confident in front of the home crowd this season and we’ve seen just one loss in their last 20 outings – 0-5 to Liverpool in Champions League – with 17 wins and just two draws. They will now be very motivated to show off on the day as well and the home crowd expects nothing less.
FC Porto vs Vitoria Setubal: Head-to-head

Porto have bagged a thrashing 0-5 win over the rivals earlier this season, with goals from Aboubakar (x3) and Marega (x2)
Setubal have snatched a 1-1 draw on their last trip to this ground.
FC Porto vs Vitoria Setubal: Prediction
We will now back Porto to build on great recent records and bag a comfortable win, as Asian Handicap -1.5 comes as a banker bet at 1.42.
We do believe we’ll see another confident display from the home side and with that in mind, we’ll also back them to keep a clean sheet at 1.57.
