Setubal vs Moreirense
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Estadio do Bonfim (Setubal).
Setubal are looking to jump over Moreirense in the bottom half of the Primeira Liga ladder with a three-pointer on Saturday afternoon when the two teams clash each other at Estadio do Bonfim.
The hosts got off to the best possible start to the new campaign beating Desportivo Aves 2-0 at home on the opening day. However, they are winless ever since as the streak of two draws and three defeats in five league games followed. Lito Vidigal’s main issues are connected to the lack of the efficiency in the final third. His men notched just one goal in last three matches in Primeira Liga.
Can they find the momentum here against Moreirense who will come into the match encouraged with the 1-0 win over Feirense last weekend?
Setubal vs Moreirense: Head-to-head

Teams shared spoils in two draws in the previous term of Primeira Liga.
Setubal vs Moreirense: Prediction
Setubal just don’t look convincing at all at the moment. They are really struggling in the build-up play and we’d not be surprised to see Moreirense keeping their second straight clean sheet on Saturday.
The visitors had a somewhat tougher schedule of late as it included the trip to Dragao and the tie with Porto (3-0 loss). They have one win in three games on the road (def Nacional 1-2 in the maiden away fixture of the season). Given that Setubal lost the home outing against Nacional recently, we just can’t recognize any value in backing the home win at the odds of 1.95 here.
The Under 2.5 goals FT is by far the best of the betting options you can take from this game, while Moreirense are also worth backing not to lose at the odds of 1.85.
