Our top free tips for Farense vs Sporting

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

Sporting to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Although they failed to win in the last two games, Sporting is still undefeated this season in the league. This is quite impressive and it is unlikely to end against a team struggling for survival like Farense. We expect Sporting to win this game to cement their championship pursuit and we expect them to lead at half time when they do it. However, if you want to play it safer, you can bet on Sporting to win.

Total Goals Under 2.5

This prediction is one of our favourite for this round of the Portuguese league. Farense has gone under 2.5 total goals in their last seven games, while Sporting has done the same in seven of their last eight league games. In addition to this, the first match this season between these two has also gone under 2.5, so this seems like a smart bet to us.

Sporting to Win to Nil

Since we expect Sporting to win and we don’t expect to see many goals, Sporting to win to nil is another logical prediction. Furthermore, Sporting has won to nil in 54% of their matches this season, while has failed to score in 38% of their matches. Also, the first game between them this season ended in a 1-0 Sporting win. Sporting to win to nil seems like a reasonable prediction.

Farense vs Sporting preview: Can Sporting get back to winning?

The team from Lisbon is on a course of winning their 19th league title, but Porto and Benfica are still hoping to make the race more interesting. Meanwhile, Farense is fighting for survival, so this match is important for both teams.

Farense

The team from Faro is in the relegation zone at the moment and they are at serious risk of getting demoted. Farense has three points less than Boavista, the first team outside of the relegation zone. There is still time for Farense to turn the season around, but they are in poor form with four losses and one win in the last five league games. They also have some injury problems with Isidoro, Lica, and Defendi all out of the game or questionable.

Sporting

A draw against Famalicao at home over the weekend has put a bit of a dent on the title bid for Sporting, but they are still on top of the league standings with a six-point advantage over Porto and eight points more than Benfica. In the last five league games, Sporting has won three times, along with two consecutive draws in the last two games. Sporting has a clean bill of health ahead of this game.
