Top Sporting Lisbon vs Midtjylland Prediction & Europa League Tips

The long wait is finally over and Europa League is back with a bang! We have Sporting Lisbon vs Midtjylland on the 16th of February and we anticipate one hell of a performance by the two teams.

Over 2.5 Sporting Lisbon Goals

Our key Sporting Lisbon vs Midtjylland predictions this week are for the home team to thrash Midtjylland 3-0 or perhaps 4-1. Both games back in 2001 ended with Leoes scoring three and we’re certain that that’ll be the case on Thursday as well. After all, Sporting Lisbon even managed to score two at home against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League – a far more prolific opponent and tournament.

Pedro Goncalves to Score Anytime

Sporting Lisbon’s winger is sharper than ever. The 24-year-old left winger has 10 goals to his name and undoubtedly deserved his place on the Portugal national team. Goncalves to score is a top Sporting Lisbon vs Midtjylland prediction of ours and we can’t wait for the kick-off. He won’t have too many issues scoring as most of his goals were recorded at Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Sporting Lisbon/Sporting Lisbon

Leoes have too many things working for them on Thursday that we just don’t see Midtjylland standing any chance. The home-field advantage is in favor of the Portuguese team, the momentum is also in their favor, and the head-to-head stats suggest a victory for Sporting Lisbon.

The two teams faced each other twice back in 2001 and both games ended badly for the Danish club as Sporting Lisbon won 0-3 in Denmark and 3-2 in Portugal.

Sporting Lisbon vs Midtjylland: Match Preview & News

This Europa League clash deserves a brief match preview. You’ll find it below!

Sporting Lisbon

Sporting Lisbon came close to advancing to the Champions League’s next fixture. They were placed in a group with the likes of Tottenham, Marseille, and Eintracht Frankfurt. After six matches they won two, one ended with a draw, and three were sadly lost. However, this doesn’t change our Sporting Lisbon vs Midtjylland prediction and we still fancy the home side to win the game on Thursday.

They will be concerned about getting a positive result in this meeting given their recent form. Sporting faced Porto twice at Estádio José Alvalade in the span of four matches but failed each time of asking in front of home fans. This has not only seen them knocked out of the Portuguese League Cup but also hampered their third-place chances. A positive run in the Europa League is expected of them and failure to do so will result in troubles in the bleachers.

Midtjylland

After the solid 2021/22 season in the Danish League, Midtjylland followed it with a poor performance in the 2022/23 campaign. The team is currently in 7th place and is faced with the possibility to miss the championship round if the players don’t buckle down.

Since the turn of the year, they have only played two matches, both in the early half of January. While they forced their way to two victories in the Atlantic Cup over Elfsborg and Ulsan Hyundai, Sporting CP provide a much more difficult challenge. They are lacking match fitness and will have to play outside their skin to dent their losing run against Sporting. Their last two duels back in the 2001/02 campaign finished in favour of the Portuguese, who can repeat their heroics of the past.
