Vitoria Setubal vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bonfim (Setúbal).
Guimaraes slightly fell off the wagon when it comes to away games in the recent match-days, and they have got an opportunity to set straight the flaw. The team is taking a hike to Setubal, and morale will be soaring, considering their opponents have not won a single league game in their last ten attempts.
Along with Feirense, no other side could be called the absolute worst in the Primeira Liga, especially in the last several months. Setubal may be floating above the relegation line for now, but it’s mostly due to the performances they pulled off early in the season.
Coming to our visitors for the day, they were really having a jolly-good time just a month back. The team was unbeaten in 15 of their 16 matches when complacency took over. But after a period of turmoil in January, they are slowly on the track of recovery, and right now there’d be no better opposition for them than Setubal.
Vitoria Setubal vs Vitoria Guimaraes Head-to-head (h2h)

- The last time Guimaraes scored more than three goals in an h2h tie was 22 match-days back.

Vitoria Setubal vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction
Setubal is winless in their last 13 games in a row and has another streak of eight winless ties going on at home. Meanwhile, Guimaraes is on a path of redemption after their lackluster January. Before that, the team was unbeaten in 15 of their 16 matches at one point. They are slowly trying to rebuild their form back, and in Setubal, they have gotten the perfect prey for it.
The hosts for this tie have not registered a single goal in their last three fixtures, and at home, the situation is even worse. Six of the last seven games in front of the home crowd ended without a single goal from the team.
H2h ties too point towards Guimaraes taking the three points on offer. They have been unbeaten for the last four years and recorded nine of the last thirteen wins at this venue. Moreover, they also managed to score two or more goals in six of their last eight attempts.
Bearing in mind these observations, the logical expectation is that the visitors will record a win to nil. Since they have not recorded more than three goals for more than the last 22 games, the scoreline should be along the lines of 0-1, 0-2 or 0-3.
