Vitoria Setubal vs Sporting CP Predictions and Match Preview

Vitoria Setubal vs Sporting CP
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Wednesday, 30th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bonfim (Setúbal).

Lito Vidigal’s men last won a game back in the first day of December. Ever since it has been a barren run for them, and their misery seems to have no idea of coming to a halt. The next match-day, they are taking on one of the leading teams in Portugal. Even their home-ground has not come to their rescue, and fans from Setubal are really starting to wonder if their team would make it to the next season unscathed.

The Lions are having the time of their life in the Primeira Liga, and they look ready to challenge for the Champions League spot, which is just three points away from them. More than the games against the best ones, it’s the ones like these that determine the future of a club’s season, and Marcel Keizer rightly buys into this philosophy. There will be no way that his men would take this tie lightly.
