Portimonense actually gave a really good fight to Porto last time out and they took the lead keeping the 1:1 result till the 57th minute, but were overrun later on via three goals from Porto within few minutes. Other than that, the team does look very decentish now being at the eleventh position with four points more than relegation zone.
After a victory away to Maritimo, the players of Setubal didn’t manage to hold Benfica suffering 0:1 defeat in front of own fans last weekend. Benfica took the lead early, however, Setubal was the one that looked bit better and actually had more chances and more ball possession in the second. They are now eight at the table with seventeen points earned.
Portimonense will miss left back Lazaroni (3/0), midfielder Pereira (1/0), while forward Jackson Martinez (8/2) remains doubtful for the moment. The guests miss left back Sousa (4/0) and offensive midfielder Freitas (9/0) due to injuries.
Portimonense have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 5 home matches against Setubal.
Portimonense comes from a really decent performance against Porto actually and should continue in the same manner. Vitoria troubled Benfica as well, with both teams looking more than decently at the moment. Both of them do impress recently and another quite open encounter shouldn’t be surprising, just as most of their recent clashes.
