The horrendous situation in and around the club caused the exodus of first team regulars this summer as the Lions saw their squad change significantly in between two campaigns.

Nevertheless, they still remain heavyweights and one of the main contenders for the very top of the standings, besides Porto and Benfica.

The Lions started the new season with a convincing 1-3 victory away at Moreirense and they will be favourites to maintain the perfect record after the second round tie against Vitoria Setubal at Jose Alvalade.

The visitors were one of the biggest disappointments of the last season as they finished just two points above the drop zone.

The team led by Lito Vidigal had a horrendous record on travels where they won 1 and lost as many as 11 of 17 games in the previous term of the competition.

Sporting CP vs Vitoria Setubal: Head-to-head

  • Sporting dominated this match-up over the course of history, beating their rivals 27 times in 47 outings.
  • However, last two H2H games saw the same 1-1 scoreline.
  • These two sides met each other in the Taca da Liga final last year as the Lions lifted the trophy after penalties as the regular 90 minutes ended in a 1-1 draw
  • The Lions were especially dominant in matches at their Estadio Jose Alvalade where they won 15 and lost just 2 of 22 games with Vitoria Setubal.

Sporting CP vs Vitoria Setubal: Prediction

Bas Dost continued from where he stopped last year as he was the one who inspired the 1-3 victory over Moreirense with a second-half brace.

The Dutchman will lead the attacking line here as well and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick.

Nevertheless, Setubal were also quite impressive in the final third in both pre-season and the first game of the regular campaign. They notched as many as eight goals in last three outings.

Knowing that Sporting’s defensive line allowed a goal against Moreirense on Sunday, we’ll shoot for the home win & BTTS bet at the odds of 3.10.

Sporting CP vs Vitoria Setubal: Bet Tips

  • Bas Dost to score anytime @ 1.60 (6/10)
  • Sporting CP to win & BTTS @ 3.10 (21/10).
