Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense Prediction & Match Preview

Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 9 November 2018
Kick-Off at 21:15 UK / 22:15 CET
Venue: Estadio do Bonfim (Setubal).

Setubal will have a nice chance to return on the winning ways on Friday evening when they play host to Feirense in the second game of the Matchday No 10.

Lito Vidigal’s men were on a three-win streak before falling narrowly to pace-setters Sporting Braga five days ago at Estadio Municipal de Braga (2-1).

The hosts should have plenty of room to deliver in the final third here when they meet the vulnerable defensive line of Azuis da Feira. Feirense allowed as many as four goals in a tough home defeat to relegation strugglers Tondela (2-4) in the previous round.

It was their third defeat in last four games in Primeira Liga. Such a negative tread dropped Feirense to 14th place which is quite a downfall if we know they opened the campaign in a rather promising fashion.

Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense: Head-to-head

Feirense will rely on the head to head tradition here as they only lost one of eight meetings with Setubal over the course of history.

Only one of these eight encounters produced three or more goals.

Azuis da Feira were entirely dominant in the most recent H2H history. They won four and drew one of last five matches against Setubal.

Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense: Prediction

The time has come for the horrendous head to head trend to come to an end for Setubal here. They come into this as massive form favourites and we’d be very surprised to witness anything else but the home victory as the outcome here.

The team led by Nuno Santos failed to find the back of the net in five subsequent league matches before they notched two in a 2-4 defeat to Tondela last time out. Just to compare, Vitoria Setubal picked up a 1-2 victory over Tondela a week earlier.

The home win is well worth backing at 1.90 odds, while we will alternatively take 2.20 odds for Setubal to keep a clean sheet against the struggling opposition.
