Vitoria de Setubal vs Gil Vicente Prediction

Setubal were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day by Moreirense. The two dropped points have now increased pressure on the team to now deliver in this upcoming Friday fixture.

Meanwhile, Gil Vicente too were held to a 2-2 draw the prior game week, by Braga. The former were on the road, and it was the fourth winless game in a row for the team. Keep note they were also winless in eight of their prior ten fixtures, and on the road, they have managed a total of just three wins this whole season.

One of these wins came in the Taca de Portugal against a lower division team, one came in the League Cup, and the only league win came against the dead-last placed Aves. On top of that, also understand that Gil Vicente are a newly promoted squad.

Going on, Setubal have lost just thrice in total this whole campaign at home, and two of those defeats had come against Porto, and Sporting. In addition, they also have the home advantage, and home teams have lost just once in h2h clashes since 2003, and Setubal have lost an h2h encounter just once since 2006.

Moreover, at this venue, Setubal are unbeaten against this opponent since 2003, and most importantly, they have conceded just in one h2h match at home in the past 17 years. Also keep note that Gil Vicente had failed to score in six of the last nine h2h meetings. As such, expect the hosts to win, and for them to put on a strong defensive performance as well.
