Feirense vs Vitoria Setubal
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 1st April 2019
Kick-off at 19.15 UK/ 20.15 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira).
Feirense has almost ensured relegation. They are dead-last in the table and needs a surplus of 11 points to get over the exit pit, with just 24 points remaining to play for. Keep in mind that, all they could secure so far in the regular season is 15 points from 26 matches. The next better team in the table holds a nine-point lead over them.
For Setubal, this is an opportunity to run away from the cut-off line that is catching up from below. They have not been able to perform well to their desires, or at least to ensure safety, but this week, they are pitted against the worst team in the competition, and they will be particular to make it count.

Feirense vs Vitoria Setubal Prediction
With eight more rounds to go, Setubal would get no better opportunity to build some safety buffer against the relegation threat. They share the same number of points with Tondela, and from here on, Setubal needs to either match or better Tondela’s results for each match-day, or risk exit to the lower division.
Building on that thought, this week is a huge chance to surge ahead, considering Tondela is on the road against the league-topper Benfica. A win against Feirense will provide a massive advantage to Vitoria.
Moreover, they won the reverse fixture, and Feirense is winless in their last 19 games in a row. The team also lost seven of their last eight matches and lost their last five home ties. The squad conceded two or more goals in their last seven home fixtures.
In addition, Feirense has scored the least number of goals of all the teams in contention. Expect the visitors to draw inspiration from this, and register a clean sheet along with their win.
