Sporting Lisbon vs Vitoria Setubal Soccer Betting Tips
Is Setubal’s bankruptcy series continuing?
Betting Tips: Sporting Lisbon
On the penultimate matchday in the Primeira Liga, Sporting Lisbon welcomes Vitoria Setubal’s kick-back kicker. The hosts still have an important season goal in the form of defending third place on the agenda. Braga is only two points behind and can still challenge the captains of this coveted rank.
The fight for this placement is because it enables direct participation in the group stage of the Europa League. An advantage in view of the upcoming season preparation, which would otherwise be significantly disrupted by the games across the continent.
Sporting recently went bankrupt with the new champions Porto, but has been constant since the restart. The guests are once again in free fall: For six rounds, only bankruptcies have been conceded and relegation threatens. For the match at Estadio Jose Alvalade XXI between Sporting Lisbon and Vitoria Setubal, the tip on passable odds includes a home win of zero.
Sporting Lisbon – Statistics & current form
If it were enough for third place in the end, Sporting would take this place for the fifth time in the last six seasons. This balance sheet makes it clear that the green-whites have not been able to get to Benfica and Porto for quite some time. The last title was 18 years ago.
Successful restart of Sporting
At least at the end of the season, the team from coach Ruben Amorim was largely convincing. In the eight games since the end of the season suspension, five wins have been achieved and only lost to Porto once last Wednesday.
However, the match would have taken a different course if the goal by Andraz Sporar had not been recaptured by the VAR in the first minute of the game. At home, victories have been achieved consistently since the end of the season suspension, with the defensive always acting reliably: Sporting recorded a clean sheet in three of four games.
The series of home victories of the lions already includes eight games, in which only one goal was conceded in three matches. Jovane Cabral is also on the offensive. The 22-year-old has scored five of his six goals this season in his last six appearances.
Do the home side strike at least twice?
In view of the generally stable offensive and the below-average defense of the opponent, the odds for at least two goals from the home side are given value on the match between Sporting Lisbon and Vitoria Setubal.
Probable lineups of Sporting Lisbon:
Maximiano – Ristovski – Coates – Quaresma – Mendes – Borja – Matheus – Wendel – Cabral – Plata – Sporar

Vitoria Setubal – Statistics & current form
Edelfan Jose Mourinho currently has little pleasure from his favorite club, where his father has worked as a player and coach: Setubal has been the worst team in terms of games since the season resumed. Only two points were scored in the eight games.
Setubal is a reliable point supplier abroad
The away record of Vitoria also gives little hope. Only Portimonense and the completely beaten Aves bottom score less in the foreign country. The kickers from the peninsula have been waiting for the next three on foreign territory for seven attempts (0-3-4). Even at Aves a 0: 1 was recently conceded.
The three-time cup winner currently benefits from having won the direct comparison with Portimonense and Tondela. This means that, despite a draw with the teams mentioned and a poorer goal difference, the 17th place and therefore the relegation zone need not be taken.
The biggest shortcoming this season is undoubtedly the attack: With 25 goals after 32 rounds, Setubal has the second worst result.
Probable lineups of Vitoria Setubal:
Makaridze – Meira – Pires – de Sousa – Jubal – Semedo – Carlinhos – Mansilla – Bessa – Guedes – Zequinha

Sporting Lisbon vs Vitoria Setubal Direct comparison

For the next edition of the duel between Sporting Lisbon and Vitoria Setubal, the odds clearly indicate a continuation of this one-sided balance of power.
Sporting Lisbon vs Vitoria Setubal Soccer Betting Tips
At the beginning of July, Julio Velazquez cleared the coaching chair at Setubal by mutual agreement with the club’s managers. But this step didn’t work. Vitoria is currently the weakest team in the top Portuguese league.
For six rounds only defeats have been conceded and the relegation is becoming increasingly apparent. But there is still hope because the tied footballers from Tondela and Portimonense are still behind the guests. With the Leoes, however, guests face a difficult opponent.
The hosts want to defend third place, which is why the motivation should be right. In view of this starting position, the tip at Sporting Lisbon against Vitoria Setubal includes a home win without conceding a goal.
Key facts – Sporting Lisbon vs Vitoria Setubal tips
- Setubal is the weakest team since the end of the season suspension (0-2-6)
- Sporting is still fighting for third place
- Guests have been waiting for the next win for seven away games (0-3-4)
The Lisbon home defensive conceded less than one goal on average and is only topped by the Benfica and Porto backers in terms of preventing goals.
The prediction is underpinned by the harmless series of attacks by the upcoming opponent: twelve goals in 16 guest appearances speak volumes and the handicap can also be observed again today, as there has been no scoring for 180 minutes away – not even in the last away game against the table-bottom Aves.
