FC Porto vs Vitoria Setubal
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 16th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: Estádio do Dragão (Porto).
The Dragons are on course to replicate their success in the Primeira Liga last season. Their Champions League commitments have been an extra load on them, but the team is well equipped to deal with it. Another thing to take into consideration is the competition provided by Benfica for the title. The free-scoring squad is just one point below the current league champions and league-toppers.
Also, after the Eagles recorded a 10-0 win in the last match-day, it’s time for the Dragoes to show their hand. And it better be good.
Sandro Mendes’s men are heavily flirting with disaster after their dismal run of form. As of now, the group is just two points away from the relegation zone, and knowing their opponents for the next tie, that job will be likely taken care of. Have strength, guys, Have strength.
