With just one win and six losses in their last nine games played, Vitoria Setubal will again go as underdogs in their next tie as Liga NOS side Casa Pia visit the Bonfim this Thursday. The home side, which plays in Liga Portugal 3, picked up a massive 4-1 win in the last round of the Taca da Liga against Pero Pinheiro but it seems that they will be subjected to the same or a similar scoreline this week. Casa Pia might have failed to win five of their last seven games, but considering the fact that they held Porto to a goalless draw in their last game, despite being down to ten-men speaks volumes about their abilities, especially when playing a tier-three club.

Vitoria de Setubal vs Casa Pia Betting Pick #1: Casa Pia to win
Vitoria Setubal has not only failed to win their last five games now, but they have also failed to score a single goal in the last 360+ minutes on field against competitive and even non-competitive oppositions. There is no doubt that Casa Pia will have a cakewalk in this game, even if they rest some of their major players, as the away side just has too much quality for Vitoria Setubal to comprehend, let alone cope.
Porto failed to capitalize on any of their chances against this Casa Pia defence, which was down by a red card and we are pretty sure that is enough evidence to suggest that the away side can keep a clean sheet easily in this game. Further, Vitoria Setubal has also failed to score in their last three games played now, adding more stress on the Casa Pia clean sheet probability. A 2-0 win for the visitors is our expected scoreline in normal time.
