Vitoria Setubal vs Belenenses Prediction & Betting tips
Many decisions have already been made in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, but in the relegation battle there is still tension on the last game day. FC Porto dethrones last year’s champions Benfica Lisbon and secures the title on the Iberian Peninsula.
Three more teams from the table cellar have to fear for relegation. Vitoria Setubal is currently just above the line, but is under tremendous pressure against Belenenses on Sunday evening. Even a division of points will probably result in relegation to LigaPro, as the penultimate Portimonense will be successful against the bottom of the table. For the head coach Lito Vidigal, it is important to do everything for a home win to secure the class.
The guest from Lisbon secured the league last weekend and goes calmly into this game.
Vitoria de Setubal:
Great pressure for the hosts from the west of Portugal. After 33 games, the green-whites only have six wins on the credit side of their account. With a total of 31 points, Vitoria is currently in 16th place in the Primeira Liga tables. The advantage over the relegated team of Portimonense SC is only one point.
Since the home side must assume that their pursuer will win the home game against the bottom of the table, coach Lito Vidigal’s team counts only three. However, the conditions for this are not exactly good. The green-whites have been waiting for a success since 15 league games. Only six draws were won in these games and put Setubal in this precarious situation.
After six defeats in a row, Vitoria got a respectable win at the 0-0 victory at Sporting Lisbon last weekend, which should give a little tailwind for the decisive game. Only three games have been won on home turf this season.
With only 25 goals scored, the green-whites represent the second worst offensive in the league. Her top scorer Helder Guedes is suffering from a shoulder injury and threatens to drop out for the important game. Center-back Pires will join the squad again after a yellow card suspension.
After the success of last weekend, the four-time Portuguese champion can relax in the last game of the current season. With nine wins and eight draws from 33 duels, Belenenses is in 14th place in the Primeira Liga and has five points ahead of the direct relegation zone to get rid of all worries.
With six games without a win in a row, Lisbon brought itself into dire straits again, but the 1-0 triumph last Monday brought the much-needed threesome that ensured the league remained.
The biggest deficit of the team of head coach Petit, who took over the team earlier this year, was the lack of opportunities. The blue-whites scored only 27 goals and thus deliver the third worst value in the league. Her top scorer is Lica with seven goals, but has only used once since resuming play.
In the last eight games, the guests never managed to overcome the opposing goalkeeper more than once. The defensive, on the other hand, was rarely solid and has already conceded 52 goals. This is the second worst value in the Primeira Liga after Aves table bottom.
The clear outsider role of the guests at the betting providers can only be justified by the fact that Lisbon is no longer about anything.
