Porto vs Vitória de Setúbal – Liga NOS: Many will say that the hardest objective was already accomplished.
FC Porto went to Estádio da Luz to beat Benfica by 1-0, with a goal by Herrera at the 90th minute
Deciding the match in their favour and putting the club at the top of the league table with only 4 matches to go until the end of the season.
Yes, the Dragons are in 1st place once again and they recovered in Lisbon the strength to attack a title that has been escaping them for the past 4 years.
That recovery will have an even sweeter taste if we look to the fact that it was achieved after two losses on their 2 previous away matches.
Sérgio Conceição believed on his model and his ideas even on the toughest context and they came out on top.
Meanwhile, midweek, his exhibition was underwhelming. The team was playing on the edge, with a short advantage to defend in order to reach, also, the cup final.
But they didn’t have the ability to overcome a Sporting that, coming from behind, impose itself over their rivals. All that’s left for this club is really the league for them to be successful.
Until Monday, the team will have had enough rest to be in good condition to face a Vitória de Setúbal side that will have a lot to think about.
They are only 3 points above Estoril, and a schedule that presents matches against rivals on the same poor conditions. Snatching points at Estádio do Dragão would be a lifeline, to avoid that advantage getting shorter with the results on the other matches.
Porto vs Vitória de Setúbal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But for José Couceiro and his players, this is a time of rationality, conscience and maturity.
The team faces this match with the natural understanding of the difficulties, hoping to come out alive of this match for a battle and a threat that will extend itself until the final round.
For now, FC Porto’s favouritism will hardly be contested here.
