Tondela faces Vitoria Setubal in a match of the 17th round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Tondela: The hosts are currently in the 11th position in the league with 18 points won after 5 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses. They head into this game with confidence after preserving a clean sheet in an away win (0-1) against Guimaraes. Therefore, we can expect that Tondela will have the ability to stay tight in defence again. Although they have had many ups-and-downs in the form and performance, they still kept two clean sheets in the last three league matches.
Vitoria Setubal: The away team is sitting in the bottom of the table with 11 points won after 2 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses. Setubal has had a terrible streak of six consecutive losses in Primeira Liga, however, they’ve managed to end it by playing a draw (2-2) against Estoril in the previous round. Their winless run has placed them in the bottom of the Primeira Liga with small chances to avoid the relegation.
Conclusion: Oddly enough, Vitoria Setubal has been barely more successful than Tondela in their previous meetings. However, this time bookies favour the hosts, especially when the away team is in such a bad form. Therefore, this should be a balanced match featuring two sides that are weak in finishing scoring chances. This game is likely to finish with a scoreline within 2 goals.
