In 29 matches in this competition, they have only won 1 of the 14 matches they won in the first goal. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 14 away matches for this competition: they have scored 6 of their 13 goals between minutes (16′-30 ‘).
The Portimonense added his third consecutive defeat, against FC Porto. The team was completely impotent and even the fact of playing in their stadium allowed him to balance the game. The best news, for the team of Antonio Folha, was even the fact of the National having lost, which allowed him to maintain the same advantage over the zone of degradation. So, the Portimão team leaves for this game with the same 5 points of advantage, but urgently needs to return to the triumphs, not to be in a very complicated situation, even in terms of mood. For this game, Antonio Folha has the return of his best midfielder, as Paulinho returns after completing a suspension game. Despite the importance of adding the three points, a draw could be a minor evil for the visiting team, taking into account the competitiveness that Vitória de Setúbal has shown since Sandro Mendes assumed the technical command.
