Tondela vs Setubal Prediction & Match Preview

Tondela vs Setubal
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 28 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Parque Joao Cardoso (Tondela).

Tondela host Vitoria Setubal in a low-profile Primeira Liga clash on Sunday afternoon at Parque Joao Cardoso. Both teams survived their Taca da Portugal tests last weekend and generally head into this in high spirits.

Tondela needed penalties to advance past Estoril after the regular 90 minutes saw a 1-1 draw. They generally play super tight football under Pepa. The team has one of the best defensive records in the entire league with just seven goals conceded in seven games so far. However, they continuously fail to deliver at the other end which is why Auriverdes sit in the drop zone with only six points and a single victory in seven rounds.

They generally played very well at the back of late allowing just two goals in matches against Moreirense, Porto and Nacional in last three Primeira Liga outings.

Tondela vs Setubal: Head-to-head

Setubal won five, drew one and lost only two of eight head to head games against Auriverdes so far.

The home court advantage was of a huge importance for both teams in their head to head history.

Foour of last five H2H games saw home teams on the victorious side.

None of last three head to head affairs offered three or more goals scored.

Tondela vs Setubal: Prediction

Setubal were also very tough to break down so far in the season. Much like their counterparts, they shipped seven goals in seven matches. However, their attacking line did much better in recent outings as Vitoria bagged three goals in a 3-0 thumping of Moreirense before the international break.

Moving forward, Lito Vidigal’s men notched two goals in a narrow away victory over Armacenenses in last weekend’s Taca da Portugal action. Setubal thus bagged two wins on the spin. Can they make it three here against Tondela?

Both the H2H trend and teams’ form suggest a low-scoring contest and we just have to take the Under 2.5 goals FT bet as a genuine banker at the odds of 1.60.

Tondela vs Setubal: Bet Tips
