- Both teams have scored in four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs.
- Both teams have scored in five of Setubal’s last six matches.
- Both teams have scored in four of P. Ferreira’s last six matches.
- P. Ferreira have won three of their last five league games.
The hosts are without a win since returning to action in June
Vitoria Setubal made it 11 games without a win on Tuesday night when they went down 2-0 at Vitoria Guimaraes, while Pacos Ferreira narrowly lost 1-0 at home to Porto an evening earlier. Just 1pt and one position separate these two clubs heading into this weekends’ clash and it’s Pacos Ferreira that claim the title of form favourites having won three and lost three of their last six league games.
When these two sides last locked horns back in December Setubal ran out 3-2 winners as the pair produced a five-goal thriller. Setubal took the lead in first-half stoppage time but then went 2-1 down after just 11-minute of the second half. The visitors responded well and equalised in the 68th-minute and won the game 12-minutes from time, much to the dismay of the home faithful.
The visitors picked up three wins last month
Our prediction for both teams to score in Saturday’s clash is backed up by plenty of statistics. four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs have seen both teams score, as have five of the hosts’ and four of the visitors’ last six league games. Both teams have scored in 41% of Setubal’s home games and Pacos Ferreira’s away games this season, with the hosts conceding an average of 1.28 goals per home game and the visitors conceding an average of 1.38 goals on their travels.
As for a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 2-1 win for Pacos Ferreira who have form in their favour this weekend. The visitors have won three of their last five matches, two of which have been on the road, while Setubal have lost their last three league games and are without a win in their last 11 matches. The visitors have scored two or more goals in three of their last five outings while Setubal have only scored more than one goal once in their last six games.
We’re expecting a close and competitive match at the Estádio do Bonfim
Neither of these sides have kept a clean sheet in their last six matches and we don’t believe either will be able to keep the ball out of the back of their net on Saturday either. Pacos Ferreira have been digging out some really good wins at a vital stage of the season while Setubal’s miserable winless run has continued since the return of the Primeira Liga in June and we’re backing the visitors to claim all 3pts this weekend.
