Setubal vs Chaves
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 6 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio do Bonfim (Setubal).
Vitoria Setubal will be hoping to bring a dreadful streak of four straight defeats in Primeira to and end on Sunday afternoon when they play host to Chaves on Matchday No 16. The hosts fell 1-0 to nine-men Boavista on Wednesday evening away at Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI in Porto. They thus ruined a generally fine start to the new campaign and dropped down to 12th place in the league ladder as a consequence. Can they finally get the campaign up and running at home against the rock-bottomed Chaves?
The visitors have been the weakest team in the league so far in the season. They took only 8 points in 15 games and are three points shy of penultimate-placed Feirense coming into this tie. Flavienses have been struggling badly to find the back of the net lately. They drew 0-0 to fellow relegation strugglers Feirense on Thursday night to end an eight-loss streak in Primeira. The team scored only one goal in last five league outings.

Setubal vs Chaves: Prediction
The hosts have also been struggling to create in the final third in recent outings. They failed to find the net in last four games across competitions. Given the importance of the match between two fellow relegation strugglers, we just have to go with the Under 2.5 goals FT as the best of betting options here.
Chaves are league’s worst travellers. They lost seven of eight away fixtures in the league this term. They scored just four goals in the process. Setubal’s clean sheet thus looks great as an alternative pick at 2.25.
