Tondela vs Vitoria de Setubal Prediction
Tondela have been miserably alternating between draws and defeats in their past four games in the Primeira Liga. Their last clash at home, saw them hold Moreirense to a 1-1 draw. While on the road, the hosts were at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard to Braga.
With just one win from their past seven fixtures, the home team are currently sitting tenth on the ladder, two points shy of their counterparts for the weekend.
On the other hand, Vitoria de Setubal brought a two-match losing streak to a halt last week, by getting the better of Belenenses with a narrow 1-0 scoreline. The visitors have now stumbled just twice in their previous six clashes in the top flight, garnering eleven points from a possible eighteen.
It is also worth mentioning that guests have come out on top in two of their past three outings on the trot. In sharp contrast, Tondela have been branded as the worst home team in the cluster, and for good reason.
They have tasted success just once at home this season, and are, at present, on a three-match winless run here as well. Given that it was also the visitors who secured the bragging right the last time they locked horns at this venue, Tondela are the underdogs to emerge victorious in this one.
However, the hosts have been adamant at home lately, and have salvaged a point in each of their past two games here. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup had also ended as a tie, back a double chance just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, goals have been hard to come by at Estadio Joao Cardoso. Take note that all of the last six fixtures here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. In addition, Vitoria de Setubal have been struggling to find the back of the net away from home this term, and have scored no more than five goals so far.
As such, expect a low scoring affair, by all means, this weekend.
