PORTUGAL: Primeira Liga

V. Setubal – Chaves X2 1.55 1-1 win

A nice bit of value in Chaves here. Chaves are much stronger this year than previous years therefore I wouldn’t take much note of their away record. If it wasn’t for three individual defensive errors against Guimaraes on match day 1 they would have got something out of it. They also played well and held Benfica at home until 90 +2, and are showing signs of continuous improvement. They’ve had a great summer in terms of additions, and have a strong squad throughout. Setubal have had an ok start to the season, their wingers; Amaral & Teixeira are good, however providing Chaves keep them quiet, they will struggle to create, and will result in their striker Edinho or Paçienca being isolated. Setubal also lost their main centre back and captain this week. I’d have Chaves as favourites here, feel their two early losses are giving them value.
