      Analysis: Benfica vs Vitória Setúbal (14 July 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: July 14 2016, 16:17 »

      Benfica and Vitória Setúbal meet , in a friendly match, the first of the year for both teams. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the home team, since they have a record of 8 wins and 1 draw in the last 9 matches. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 18‑04‑2016, and ended in a (2‑1) win by Benfica. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Benfica

      The home team plays its first friendly match of the year, after a single friendly match played last year, which ended with the final score: Monterrey (3‑0) Benfica. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 14 wins and 1 loss in away matches; against 12 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Marítimo by (2‑6). Benfica has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches.

      They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 19 of the last 27 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 5 of their 15 matches, but have been able to turn the score around in 4.

      Benfica is the current champion of their national league, and their previous match was a 6-2 in the cup final against Maritimo, as Jonas, Mitroglou, Gaitan, Jardel and Jimenez were the goal scorers. This is a friendly match, but they should use the same formation, with a lot of players in the midfield and 2 forwards. With not usual players being used, we could have an open match.

      Analysis of Vitória Setúbal

      The away team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 3 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Estoril (2‑0) Vitória Setúbal, Real Betis (0‑1) Vitória Setúbal and Academico Viseu (0‑0) Vitória Setúbal. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 29 conceded; against 2 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 11 goals scored and 21 conceded. In their last match, for the Primeira Liga, they got a home tie against Paços de Ferreira by (0‑0). In the last 10 away matches Vitória Setúbal has tied 2 and lost 8.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, and their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 1 of those 3 matches but have never been able to hold on to the lead until the end of the 90'. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Vitoria de Setubal had their previous match 2 months ago, in the final round of their national league, where they had a 0-0 against Paços de Ferreira. They performed badly last season, as they were close to being relegated. They should try a new formation in this match and use less usual players.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most probable scenario for this match will be for Benfica to win. Sure, it is a friendly match, where both teams might not be too interested in the final result, but Benfica is clearly superior, even playing with substitutes. So we expect the home team to win this match.
