By on September 10, 2014
The first game of Portugal Primera Liga, fourth fixture, will take place Friday evening from 20:30. To be more precise, Setubal will host Benfica, the best team in the last season of portuguese football.
Setubal offered a little bit of everything so far in the first three games. They ticked one victory, one draw and one defeat. With four points after three matches, Setubal are on the 9th place in Primera Liga. They are two points behind the 6th position. The guests have a good goal difference, 3-3 at the moment. They are the underdogs in this game without any doubts.
Benfica won the first two matches of this new season in Portugal and after that they drew last round against Sporting in front of their own fans, 1-1. The champions have seven points after three games and they are on 5th place right now, with two points behind the leaders from Rio Ave. Benfica won the only away match so far, 1-0 against a new-promoted team, Boavista Porto.
In the last two years Benfica and Setubal met each other for four times. The team from Lisabona won three of this games, while the last one, in May 2014, ended with a draw.
Prediction: 2 @ 1.53
Benfica is the superior team in this match and we expect to see this fact on the scoreboard too at the final. The away team won the last four matches on this stadium and it will be something normal to see this happening again.
The best odds for Setubal vs Benfica: 6.50 – 3.80 – 1.53
