Vitoria Setubal vs Braga
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 16th Saturday 2019
Kick-off at 15.30 UK/ 16.30 CET
Venue: Estádio do Bonfim (Setúbal).
Braga stands a good chance to take on Porto and Benfica at the top of the table. With nine rounds remaining, the team is just five points off the top two spots, which ensures opening into the Champions League. They don’t stand much to lose since Europa League is almost surely locked in.
They had to deal with some tough squads in the recent match-days, which took some toll in their points on the table. But here they have got a relegation-battler, and the team will be eager to make it count.
Setubal is just a single point and a single spot above the cut-off line. They have displayed some very good defense this season, especially in the recent months. But their frontline has failed to take advantage of it.

Vitoria Setubal vs Braga Prediction
Braga is chasing the Champions League spots, and with nine games remaining and five points to make up, matches against relegation-battlers should be utilized to its extent.
The team has also been one of the most consistent teams in the Primeira Liga. They remained unbeaten in 35 of their last 40 games, and in 18 of their last 22 on the road. Setubal, meanwhile, is astonishingly winless in their last 16 fixtures in a row, and in their last ten at home. They are very low on morale, and with the relegation line catching up to them, the players are under intense pressure.
Moreover, in h2h ties, 17 of the last 19 overall wins, and six of the last eight went to Braga.
The top pick is obviously a Braga win. And, since Setubal has displayed some good defensive performances over the season while failing at their offense, the final scoreline will most probably be along the lines of 0-1, 0-2, or 0-3 for the visitors.
