Friday’s night’s action from Primeira Liga is a mid-table clash. Setubal holds a three-point advantage in the standings over Gil Vicente and with a similar record on the board, there may be some very fine margins coming into play in this fixture.

Setubal can do enough to win

The home record of Vitoria Setubal this season in the Portuguese top-flight is W3 D5 L2. Nothing much there to get excited about. In fact, the two defeats on home soil they have suffered have been in their last two played there.

But in a way, those can be scratched off as they were against current top-three sides Porto and Sporting. So other than that, they have handled themselves well on home soil.

In fact home and away combined, they haven’t lost a single game this season against anyone currently outside the top six in the standings. So at least they don’t look too likely to suffer a loss in this one.

But can they find the scoring touch to actually win the fixture? That’s the one for punters to ponder over.

Our betting prediction:
Under 1.5 goals

In their ten home games played this season, Setubal have managed to tally just five goals. That’s it. They are actually the lowest-scoring side outside of the bottom three. But on the flip side of that, they hold the joint second-best defensive record of all teams outside of the top five.

Setubal have taken a clean sheet in 70% of their home games, which is staggering. Surely this is a low-scoring game coming up.


Away form may let Gil Vicente down again

It has not been a profitable season by Gil Vicente on their travels in the top flight. They have only taken a W1 D3 L6 record on the road. Their lone away win happened at Aves who are rock bottom of the table.

We have already mentioned the lack of goal scoring threat by Setubal, there has been a lack from Gil Vicente too. At least away from home

Gil Vicente has returned only 7 goals from 10 away games played. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per away fixture.

In total, they have managed just the one clean sheet away from home and are currently fumbling along on a five-match winless streak of form away from home in the Primeira Liga.

Gil Vicente have won just one of their last eight league games home and away combined.
