Portimonense vs Vitoria Setubal Prediction

Portimonense were defeated 1-0 on the road the last match-day, by Porto. It was their 11th winless game in a row, and the 23rd from the prior 25 fixtures. This kind of form surely justifies the inclusion of the team in the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Setubal were defeated on the road 3-1, by Braga. The guests did put up with the onslaught of Braga offense for a full hour, before conceding the first goal. Despite the loss, the way they performed in the first half, and the first quarter of the latter 45 minutes, give hope of a win this Friday, to fans.

Keep note that the game is against one of the worst teams in the table. Portimonense have managed a total of 15 points from their 22 fixtures so far, and they have had a single win so far at home this season, for all their efforts. 

On the other hand, Setubal have lost just eight times on the road since February of last year, and all these defeats had come against teams in the top-six of the table at the moment. In fact, three of these eight losses had come against current toppers Porto, and two had come against defending champions Benfica.

Moreover, five of the prior seven h2h wins had gone to Setubal, and not even once had they failed to find the back of the net against this opponent at this venue in the last two decades. Taking these findings into account, it’s estimated that Setubal should put forth an impressive display this weekend.
