Vitoria Setubal vs Sporting CP Prediction

Vitoria Setubal will be hosting after a 3-0 loss to Famalicao in their previous league encounter. Meanwhile, Sporting will be visiting on the back of a 1-2 loss at home against FC Porto in their prior league clash.

Besides that, Setubal is unbeaten at home with three wins and five draws. As such, we can expect the host to fight until the last minute for keeping the streak alive in the contest.

Apart from that, Sporting is by far the third-best away team in the mix. However, Gil Vicente and Tondela have shown recently that Sporting can be defeated on the road.

Another significant fact is that both these teams are neighbors to Setubal in the league table. Since Sporting has only lost to these two teams on the road, we have to think of the possibility of Setubal troubling the Sporting CP defense in the clash.

Even so, we can at least count on the home team to draw the match as the past three h2h clashes with Sporting as ended in the same result.

So, it will be safer to go with a double chance in the game. Here, we can also expect the probability of both teams scoring in ninety minutes.
