Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Estadio do Bonfim (Setubal).
Feirense grabbed themselves a huge survival lifeline last weekend when they defeated Vitoria Guimares 2-1 at home. The team led by Nuno Santos showed fighting spirit coming back from conceding an early opener to clinch a much-needed victory with goals from Joao Silva and Antonio Briseno.
Azuis da Feira are still inside the drop zone, but now only a single point below the line and a win over direct rivals in Saturday’s six-pointer would help them finally find the way out and jump above Vitoria Setubal in the Primeira LIga ladder.
The hosts will, on the other side, finally have an easier fixture after playing Benfica, Guimaraes and Porto in last there league rounds. Such a tough schedule caused the poor run as Jose Couceiro’s side took only a single point in these three ties.
Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense: Head-to-head
Vitoria Setubal only managed to claim a single win in seven head to head games with Feirense.
Azuis da Feira won three and drew one of last four head to head affairs with Setubal.
Only one of these seven H2H matches brought three or more goals.
Vitoria Setubal vs Feirense: Prediction
We definitely have reasons to expect a low-scoring contest in such an important relegations ix-pointer between two sides who generally play very tight when they take on each other. The Under 2.50 goals FT should really be a banker bet worth backing with higher stakes at the odds of 1.66.
As for the outcome, it could go either way since sit’s really little to separate the two teams at this stage. Having the most recent H2H ties in mind, the value is decent in backing Feirense not to lose at 2.05 given they only lost only of seven meetings with Setubal. Furthermore, the visitors won three of last four matches against Couceiro’s side and the away win also looks delicious at the 4.75 odds.
The only problem for Nuno Santos might be his team’s horrendous record in the road where Feirense lost seven on the bounce in Primeira Liga. This is why we’ll skis the away win bet in spite of such generous price.
