Reason For Sporting Lisbon vs Vitoria Setubal Predictions

  • Sporting Lisbon have won five of their last seven matches.
  • Both teams have scored in only 14 of Setubal’s 32 league fixtures this term.
  • Setubal are winless in their last 14 Primeira Liga fixtures.

Sporting Lisbon can close in on European berth

Sporting Lisbon still have plenty to play for in the Portuguese Primeira Liga and that could be bad news for struggling visitors Vitoria Setubal at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Sporting will be eager to tighten their grasp on third spot and a consequent place in next season’s Europa League with victory, especially as their final game of the campaign is a tricky trip to Benfica.

A home tie with lowly Setubal will be deemed the more winnable fixture, with the visitors having taken maximum points in only six of their 32 league assignments in 2019/20.

Setubal still in danger of drop

They have dropped into the relegation battle after a run of six successive league defeats against Boavista, Rio Ave, Vitoria Guimaraes, Pacos Ferreira, Aves and Famalicao, and they could lack the attacking quality to drag themselves out of danger.

Setubal have managed to score only 25 goals in 32 league fixtures this season and drew blanks in their last two away fixtures to Guimaraes and basement boys Aves – a game in which they had only a solitary shot on target.

They have struggled in particular against the league’s big guns, losing 4-0 at home to Porto back in February only weeks after losing the reverse of this fixture 3-1 against Sporting and that enhances appeal about backing the capital club at -1 on the handicap, meaning they need to win by two or more goals for the bet to be successful.

Setubal have lost two of their last three away matches in the league by at least two goals and will be taking on a Lisbon outfit with plenty of attacking quality.

Sporting have attacking quality to run out comfortable winners

Although top scorer Bruno Fernandes departed for Manchester United in January, forwards Luiz Phellype and Luciano Vietto have 16 goals between them this season and can help the hosts to a comprehensive win.

In terms of a correct score prediction, it is worth noting that Sporting Lisbon have kept 11 league clean sheets this campaign and the lack of attacking quality in Setubal’s ranks suggests they may fail to get on the scoresheet. 

We therefore predict a 2-0 win for Sporting, a scoreline they have won by four times in the league this term.
