Portimonense struggling for survival

One point from their last five league games is all that Portimonense have to show for their recent efforts. 22 games into the league season and there has been just the two victories posted by Portimonense. Their home record stands at W1 D5 L4.

They got a point in their most recent home game from a 1-1 draw against Moreirense. That’s two draws in their last three league home games, which may pique some interest for a repeat outcome in Friday’s night’s fixture.

They did earn a point out on the road against Vitoria Setubal earlier in the season, a 0-0 result. Putting the ball on the back of the net has been a massive problem for them all season. They have averaged just 0.8 goals at home in the campaign.

Only 30% of Portimonense’s home games have made it over 2.5 goals this season. Each of their last four such fixtures have ended under the goal line.

Portimonense currently have the second worst home record in the Portuguese top flight. They are also the second-lowest scorers. It has all combined to leave them in big trouble here, but three points could change the picture substantially on the weekend.

1-1 Correct Score

Three of the last four meetings between these two teams have ended in a draw, including the last two. Portimonense though have won their last two home games against Vitoria Setubal. So they do have that going for them. But they are currently on a ten-match winless streak of league form (D4 L6).


Can Setubal Vitoria ease their own pressure?

Setubal Vitoria have taken only one point from their last four games. They have lost five of their last seven (W2 D1). So they are out of touch at the moment as well. The away record of Setubal Vitoria is at W3 D3 L5 this season.

Their recent road returns haven’t been all that bad as they are W2 D1 L1 in their last four away from home. They were out on the road last weekend and suffered a 3-1 loss at top-three side Sporting Braga. They have not banked a clean sheet in any of their last four league games.

Setubal Vitoria have averaged under a goal per away game this season, failing to score in a total of 45% of road fixtures. Of the goals which they have scored on the road, 60% of them have happened in the first half of games.

They are currently 11 points above the relegation zone so don’t have as big pressure on them as their opponents do. But they will want to snap this trend of losses. Six of their last eight league games have gone over 2.5 goals.
