Sporting Lisbon vs Porto – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Sporting CP come into the game on the back of a 1-0 success over Rio Ave that has kept the team in the battle for the second place. Porto continued their impressive run with the 1-0 success over Academico Viseu in the quarter-finals of the Taca de Portugal.

Win for Sporting CP

Porto have been on an eight-game winning run coming into the fixture. Sporting CP have every reason to be fearful of this run, but home advantage gives them a major reason to believe that an upset could be on the cards. Sporting CP are several points behind Porto in the league table but a victory in this match could swing things in favour of the host. This prediction anticipates a victory for Sporting CP.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been more than 2.5 goals in three out of the last five games for Sporting CP. After losing 2-0 to Porto just a few weeks ago, the home team will be aware about the tactics employed by the visitors. There may already be counter-attacking plans in the works, but this match will be very tight given the stakes.

Both teams to score – no

Porto have been able to get at least a goal in the last eight matches. The last time Porto failed to score in any match was in early January. This prediction anticipates another good offensive performance from the visiting team but Sporting CP can be very hard to break down based on the recent defensive performances.

Sporting Lisbon vs Porto Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Sporting Lisbon

Sporting CP are in a brilliant position coming into the game, as the team has recovered very well from the recent loss to Porto. The wins over Braga and Rio Ave have made a lot of progress in rediscovering the good confidence levels within the team. Sporting CP may be without Daniel Braganca and Paulinho.

Ruben Amorim’s News:

The 38-year-old coach Ruben Amorim only has to worry about two absentees, one more important than the other. Midfielder Daniel Braganca will not be available, the 23-year-old is one of the coach’s regular replacements. The youth Dario Essugo will also be ineligible for this duel. Fortunately, the players who usually start the game are in top form. The coach still has not forgotten the last h2h in which he lost 3-0.

Porto

Porto have been able to register a string of wins, but the team are missing a number of crucial players coming into the fixture. Evanilson, Fabio Cardoso, Wendell, Gabriel Veron, and Otavio are big doubts for the game. Francisco Meixedo and Stephen Eustáquio have certainly been ruled out of action.

Sergio Conceicao´s News:

For next matchday’s line-up, coach Sergio Conceicao will be without three crucial players. Brazilian youngster Gabriel Veron, who has started on the bench during the season, will be less relevant now with his injury. Canadian midfielder Stephen Eustaquio has been one of the most consistent players with 15 appearances, and 9 starts. Otavio is another player who will miss the next game after being injured in the previous match.
