Vitoria Guimaraes vs Setubal
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 30 September 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques (Guimaraes).
Vitoria Guimaraes will be hoping to return on the winning ways after a disappointing defeat to Portimonense 3-2 on the road last weekend. They will have a nice chance to do so on Sunday afternoon given the opposition comes in the likes of Setubal.
The visitors started off with a 2-0 home win over Aves, but went on to claim only a single point in four following Primeira fixtures. They’ve bagged just two goals ever since, allowing six along the way. Setubal failed to find the net in last two league matches, drawing 0-0 to Belenenses and losing 0-2 to Porto eight days ago.
Vitoria Guimaraes vs Setubal: Head-to-head
Guimaraes were the dominant side in the most recent history of head to head matches against Setubal.
Os Vimaranenses won three and drew one of last four head to head matches against Vitoria Setubal.
Interestingly, five of last six H2H affairs saw goals at both ends.
Guimaraes were particularly impressive in home matches against Setubal, winning 10, drawing 8 and losing just 2 of 20 at Dom Afonso Henriques.
Vitoria Guimaraes vs Setubal: Prediction
The hosts do come into this as clear favourites. They won two and lost three of five games so far. It can’t be regarded as a poor return knowing they’ve already played the likes of Benfica and Porto.
Moving forward, the team led by Luis Castro will be up against dreadful travellers Setubal here. The visitors had a poor record on the road in the previous term of Primeira Liga. They won just 1, drew 5 and lost 11 of 17 away matches in the league last season.
Os Vimaranenses conceded only one goal in two hone affairs in the 2018/19 campaign and we’ll also back them to keep things tight at the back against the struggling rivals here. The home win is a must-take bet at 2.00.
