Vitoria Setubal Prediction – Can Setubal build on pre-season form?

After finishing last season in the bottom half of the Portuguese Primeira Liga in 13th place and ending their season on a low note, Setubal will be pleased with their pre-season.

The hosts closed out their last campaign in disappointing fashion as they registered just 1 win out of their last 6 matches of the season.

That win came in the shape of a 2-1 win away at relegated Chaves, but defeats to Benfica, Boa Vista and Rio Ave saw their results slump.

However, a promising pre-season gives Vitoria Setubal plenty of reasons to be confident ahead of their opening home match against Tondela.

Setubal were unbeaten in their 6 pre-season matches which included wins over Oliveira Hospital, Birmingham City, Extremadura and Moreirense.

Monday night’s hosts will certainly be keen to improve their record on home turf at their Estádio do Bonfim this time around though.

Vitoria Setubal ended last season with a disappointing home record of 4-6-7 13/18 but they do hold a steady record at home over Tondela.

Tondela Prediction – Can Tondela avoid another relegation battle?

Well, actually, the early signs suggest not as recent results haven’t been promising for Tondela in their preparations for their upcoming Primeira Liga campaign.

Last season, Tondela finished fourth from bottom as they came perilously close to being relegated down to the Segunda Liga.

Only a slim 3-point margin separated them from third from bottom club, Chaves, by the end of the season which was thanks to a last day win over their relegation rivals.

A last day 5-2 home win against Chaves secured Tondela’s survival for another season in the Portuguese top flight, but they face another uphill battle this term I fancy.

As mentioned earlier, the signs don’t look good for Tondela who struggled in pre-season as they failed to win any of their 5 warm-up matches.

Defeats to Desportivo Aves and Academico Viseu were further exacerbated by a Taca da Liga defeat away at Penafiel.

But if Vitoria Setubal’s finish to last season’s Primeira Liga campaign was disappointing, then Tondela’s was positively disastrous on the road.

Tondela failed to win any of their last 10 away matches in the run-in of last term, which included 6 defeats.


Key-Facts – Vitoria Setubal v Tondela

  • Vitoria Setubal were unbeaten in their 6 pre-season matches
  • Tondela failed to win any of their last 10 away matches in the Primeira Liga


Betting Tips Verdict
