Match Preview

  • Boavista’s 1-0 victory last weekend ended a five-game winless run (D1, L4), although goals remain at a premium. They are yet to score over 2.5 in any league game this season, and their average of 0.77 scored per match is the joint-second lowest across the division.
  • Whilst their attack ranks as one of the worst, their defence is actually one of the best and their average of 0.92 goals conceded per game is bettered by just two other teams. These two facets have resulted in a league-high 84.62% of their fixtures featuring under 2.5 match goals. Additionally, both teams have scored in just one of their previous five home league games.
  • Regularly having to chase down their opponents, draw specialists Vitória Setúbal (W6, D12, L8) have conceded first in five of their previous eight league matches. They’ve also managed to secure a half-time lead in just 15.38% of their league fixtures as well. It doesn’t get much better after the break either, as 64.71% of the away league goals they’ve conceded came after half-time.
  • Setúbal have also lost their previous four visits here by either a 1-0 or 4-0 scoreline, whilst on the road this season, they are yet to beat a side currently above them in the table (D3, L5) – they failed to find the back of the net in five of those eight matches too.
  • Players to watch: Goals have been at a premium for Boavista, but Bueno did score his side’s winner from the penalty spot last weekend.
  • Setúbal’s Helder Guedes has scored three goals across his previous four away league matches – two of which came in the second half.
  • Stat attack: Boavista have averaged a league-high 3.23 yellow cards per game.
  • Setubal’s average of 3.88 corners per league game is the division’s joint-lowest.
  • Just two of the previous 12 competitive H2Hs saw both teams score.
