Sporting CP win

Benfica have not been defensively solid over the last few weeks and this has led to opponents being able to comfortably find a way past. Sporting CP have registered four consecutive victories and they are in a confident position. Even with the upcoming match against Porto in the Taca de Portugal looming for the team, Sporting CP are likely to get a comfortable win.

Total goals over 2.5

There have been more than 2.5 goals in the last five matches for Benfica, who have actually witnessed than 3.5 goals in four consecutive games. After scoring three goals in two out of the last three matches, Sporting CP are in a great position to get goals.

Both teams to score – yes

Sporting CP might have picked up three clean sheets in the last five matches, but they will find it very difficult to do the same against a resurgent Benfica outfit. Benfica have managed to get nine goals in the last four matches and players like Darwin Nunez are in excellent form.

Sporting CP vs Benfica: Match Preview and Team News

Sporting CP

Sporting CP will be focusing heavily on maintaining momentum going into the last few weeks of the campaign. There is still a good possibility of finishing top and winning the title due to just six points separating them from Porto. A major advantage for coach Rúben Amorim will be the availability of a fully fit squad.

Benfica

Benfica are likely to focus heavily on finishing the campaign in the second spot, but that looks like a distant dream due to the nine-point deficit to Sporting CP. Manager Nelson Verissimo comes into the game without Rodrigo Pinho, Rafa Silva, and Lucas Verissimo.
