Vitoria Setubal vs Moreirense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Friday, 23 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bonfim (Setúbal).
Vitoria Setubal were in for a humiliating defeat at the hands of the runners up of last season FC Porto on the road, with the latter slotting four unanswered goals past the host. It was a certainly a one-sided match by all means, with the home team performing worse than they did in the stalemate with Tondela in their opening matchup.
Moreirense, on the other hand, bounced back from the defeat on matchday one against Braga and came out on top with a 3-0 scoreline in their clash with the newly promoted Gil Vicente. Three different players got their names on the scoresheet for the visitors, who took twelve attempts at goal throughout the fixture, four of which were right on target.
Although the hosts have been deprived of a win for two games in a row now, the match this week with Moreriense is likely to see them pick up their first three points of the campaign as the visitors are at their worst on the road.

Vitoria Setubal vs Moreirense Prediction
The home team were wrecked in their previous clash on the road, but to their defense, it was against one of the strongest front runners in the competition. With home advantage back under their belt this week, Setubal will certainly be fancying their chances of clinching the win when they lock horns with Moreirense on Friday.
Additionally, out of their last seven clashes with the away side at this venue, Vitoria Setubal have walked away with the bragging rights five times. Considering that the visitors have also lost three out of their last five outings across all competitions as well, it is certainly safe to back Vitoria Setubal to emerge victorious in this one.
Three out of their last five wins for the hosts here have come with less than 2.5 goals on the scorecards. Taking into account the home team have not conceded in their last two games here either, expect a low scoring clash to unfold.
