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 Pa├žienca 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.
