Sporting vs Setubal Prediction 11 August 2017

Tournament: Portuguese Primeira Division
Location: Jose Alvalade Stadium
Match date: 11.08.2017 at 20:30

On August 11 2017 at 20:30 in the opening game of the second matchday of the Primeira Division in Lisbon at the Jose Alvalade Stadium the local Sporting are going to play against Setubal.

Sporting were actually preparing well for the upcoming season and their biggest achievement was the fact that they managed to keep all of their most important players. For example, their main rivals Benfica didn’t manage to do it. In the first leg game Sporting visited Aves. They actually outplayed their competitors according to all of the parameters of the game and won 0:2 in the end.

Setubal are known to be non-ambitious middle-peasants of Portugal and we don’t think that in the current season they will manage to achieve a lot. In the previous season after 34 matches played Setubal gained 38 points and took the 12th place in the standings just 6 points above the relegation zone. Setubal, just like Sporting, have already played 1 game in the new season where they met Moreirense. Setubal didn’t look as strong as their competitors and yet they still managed to score a fast goal on the 13th minute. Yet, Setubal had one footballers sent-off on the 71st minute. In the end they conceded a goal and drew 1:1.

Sporting are the absolute favorites of the upcoming game as they haven’t lost to Setubal since 2012. Last time the teams met was on April 14 this year and Sporting also won 3:0 at home. Setubal won’t have their main center-back Fernandez and that’s another problem they may fact. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are going to win confidently in the upcoming match.
