Sporting Lisbon vs Vizela – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Sporting CP step into the game after having only managed a 2-2 draw with Benfica despite taking the lead twice in the match. On both occasions, Benfica were able to pull the game back through Goncalo Ramos. Vizela came up with a splendid 3-0 win over Maritimo in the recent match.

Sporting Lisbon to win at half-time and full-time

Sporting CP head into the match after having picked up a victory at half-time and full-time in 50% of the last six matches. Vizela have done very well with back-to-back wins at home but their away record is quite poor. In the eight away matches this season, Vizela have only picked up 11 points and they have lost all competitive matches against Sporting CP in the past.

Total goals over 2.5

The offensive performances of Sporting CP continue to be much better than many other teams in the division. In the seven home matches, Sporting CP have come up with 19 goals with only Benfica and Porto managing more goals at home. Vizela might have picked up six goals in the last three outings but they have failed to score in back-to-back games against this opponent.

Both teams to score – yes

The last time Vizela came up with a goal against Sporting CP was back in 2014. Since then, Vizela have failed to get even a goal against Sporting CP whenever they have gone up against this opponent. The defensive confidence of the home team, though, has taken a beating with a string of goals conceded.

Sporting Lisbon vs Vizela: Match Preview and Team News

Sporting Lisbon

Sporting CP head into the encounter after having been quite disappointing in the recent two matches. The failure to grasp hold of a lead against Benfica is the biggest worry for the team at this juncture. Now, Sporting CP are in a position where they have to depend on devices from other teams to get anything out of the Champions League qualification hopes.

Ruben Amorim´s Team Updates:

Sporting’s defence will feel the absence of Lui Neto and Chico Lamda, who will miss the match against Vizela. Although both are not regular starters, the coach needs to have reliable substitutes to rest a defensive line that has not been solid in the last few games. Ruben Amorim will also be without Daniel Braganca, who is usually one of his main options when making substitutions.

Vizela

Vizela step into the encounter in the mid-table spots. The back-to-back wins at home is a major boost for Vizela, but they are still unable to get things into the swing over the last few matches. The only injury worry for Vizela coach Tulipa is Claudemir.

Manuel Tulipa´s Team Update:

The Portuguese coach has all his squad in good shape, only one of his players will be absent for the next match against Sporting. Claudemir finished the previous game with some discomfort, and after some tests, it was confirmed that he will not be available for the next match. Although he is only one player out, it will be a challenge for the coach to find a replacement to fill his role, as Claudemir is one of the key players in the middle of the pitch.
