Sporting CP vs Vitoria de Setubal
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Tuesday, 21 July 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade.
The Lions have been the best team in the league after Porto and Benfica for a very long time, and they are appropriately placed third in the table at the moment.
However, Braga are giving chase for this third spot – which would allow a direct entry into the Europa League, and Ruben Amorim’s men have a lead of just two points. As such, they are forced to go after the win this Tuesday.
It’s in their favor that they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the whole competition. Not only are Lito Vidigal’s men on a long losing run, but they are deep in the relegation zone as well.
As such, expect a Sporting win at the Estádio José Alvalade.
Sporting CP vs Vitoria de Setubal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Lions have recorded 12 of the previous 13 overall wins.
- They had also won the reverse fixture, on the road, with a 1-3 scoreline.
- It’s been eight years since they have lost a league match-up against this rival.
- At this venue, the hosts are on a four-match winning run.
- They had also scored two or more goals in 11 of their former 14 meetings at home.
Sporting CP vs Vitoria de Setubal: Prediction
Vidigal’s men could be the absolute worst team in the whole competition. They are on a six-game losing run, and are on a 14-match winless run. They have also been winless against this rival since 2012 in the league, and have won just once at this stadium since 2003.
On the other hand, Amorim’s men are trying hard to confirm their spot in the Europa, and are on a nine-match winning run at this stadium. In fact, disregarding their fixtures against Benfica and Porto, they have been on a 100% winning streak at home in the past ten months.
By all means expect a huge Sporting win this Tuesday.
