Pablo Sarabia to score anytime

Pablo Sarabia has been a key player for Sporting CP so far this season. The offensive midfielder has been able to get six goals in the league and six assists as well. As the key penalty taker for Sporting CP, he will have a lot of opportunities to come up with goals in this match. Estoril have kept three consecutive clean sheets, but the offensive brilliance of the home team could come through.

Total goals over 2.5

Sporting CP might not have scored against Manchester City, but the brilliant record in the Portuguese Primeira Liga with 43 goals from the 22 games so far. In the last six matches alone, Sporting CP have averaged more than two goals per game. Estoril have been defensively better compared to many other outfits in the league, but Sporting CP should find a comfortable way past.

Both teams to score – yes

The Sporting CP defence has been breached too comfortably by many teams of late. Apart from a single clean sheet against Famalicao, it has been one-way traffic for Rúben Amorim’s men. Estoril might not have scored a lot of goals of late, but they could capitalise on the home team’s poor defence.

Sporting CP

Rúben Amorim has to go with a team that is missing some key players like João Palhinha and Sebastián Coates, as they are under suspension along with Bruno Tabata. The remainder of the campaign is largely expected to be about salvaging pride for Sporting CP, who are almost out of the Champions League and title race.


Estoril can still potentially make a move for the top five spots in the Primeira Liga, but too many dropped points against winnable opposition is hurting Estoril. The club will be without Rui Fonte and Lucas Áfrico for this match.
