Vitoria Setubal vs Belenenses
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 11 February 2019
Kick-off at 20.15 UK/ 21.15 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bonfim (Setúbal).
The Bethlehem is trying to catch up with the team up the pecking order. Their recent results are not that good, as they lost 2 matches in a row. The Blues from Restelo are rock solid at the back, as they conceded only 1.08 goals per game. They play a more aggressive and physical game to break the opponent’s rhythm.
The man from Angola has been their star forward player, as he scored 6 goals and created another 3. They always attack the opposition through counters and cross-field balls.
The team from Setubal has lost their way and winning a game looks impossible for them these days. The home side has not won a single match in the last 11, in all competition. Attacking down the left flanks and long ball are the style of the play adapted by away side.
Lito Vidigal’s men recorded just 0.9 goals per match and 11.4 shots per game this season. It has not been as productive as they wish for and the weak defense has played its part in their downfall.

Vitoria Setubal vs Belenenses: Prediction
The home side has always had an upper hand in this fixture, as the previous results shows. It will be their opportunity to win a match, as their forward line are now finding their rhythm back. The away team will come with a more defensive mindset. So I think this will be the time for the home side to shine in front of their supporters.
Both these teams will be playing hopeful long in the opposition’s half. It will create goals scoring opportunities for both these sides. As per the previous results, goals will be scored by both these teams.
