Portugal – Primeira Liga.
Date: Sunday, 3rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Estádio da Madeira (Funchal).

Team from Setubal has lost their way and winning a game looks impossible for them these days. The away side has not won a single match in the last 10, in all competition. Bottom half of the table looks tight as every team fighting for survival are separated by single-points.

Attacking down the left flanks and long ball are style of play adapted by away side. Lito Vidigal’s men recorded just 0.9 goals per match and 11.4 shots per game this season. It has not been as productive as they wish for and weak defending has played its part in their down fall.

Alvinegros has been tipped as a relegation favorite from the start of the season. The lack of quality and good transfers has affected their prospect of going forward.

Nacional’s possessional play and defending the attacks down the wing have been a problem for them. The result saw Costinha’s men have conceded 1.9 goals per game the whole season.
