Moreirense vs Vitoria Setubal
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 2 March 2019
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Almeida Freitas.
Moreirense are enjoying one of the best Primeira Liga campaigns in a while this season. They sit sky-high 5th in the league ladder after 23 rounds. They’ve been on a hot run of form recently with four wins and a draw in last five league affairs.
Os Verdes e Brancos bagged five goals in last two victories over Tondela and Feirense. They were super tough to break down at the opposite end as well allowing just two goals in last five league outings.
Ivo Vieira’s men will have a nice chance to keep splendid run of form going on Saturday evening against Vitoria Setubal.
The visitors are winless in last 14 games in all competitions. They were struggling badly for creativity in the final third in recent weeks. The team bagged only two goals in past five matches in Primeira Liga.
Moreirense vs Vitoria Setubal Head-to-head
Moreirense have an opportunity to make it all square at six wins apiece in their head to head record against Vitoria.
However, we have to say Setubal were rather tricky opponents to Os Verdes e Brancos in the most recent head to head history.
Moreirense are winless in past five ties with Vitoria, three of which saw Setubal coming on top.
Such streak includes this term’s 3-0 victory for Setubal in early-October last year at their Estadio do Bonfim.
Moreirense vs Vitoria Setubal Prediction
This is a perfect opportunity for Moreirense to bring a poor streak in H2H tradition against Setubal to an end. Vitoria barely saved a point against ten-man Guimaraes last weekend. They scored just nine goals in twelve away outings so far in the season.
On the other side, Moreirense shipped just eight goals in eleven home ties in Primeira Liga. They own a strong home record with 7 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in 11 matches in Moreira de Conegos so far in the season.
The home win to nil looks to be just the way to go here.
