The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Sporting CP win and over 2.5 goals

Sporting CP come into this game after having beaten Belenenses in five out of the last six meetings in all friendly and competitive matches combined. This is a fixture that has frequently provided a lot of joy for Sporting CP and there is no reason to expect why this will continue with boss Rúben Amorim seeing strong set of performances from his team. Belenenses have opened the new campaign in disappointing fashion with back-to-back losses and confidence is not really great at the moment.

Sporting CP total goals over 2.5

Sporting Lisbon come into this game with a return of five goals from the opening two league matches. The offensive form shown by players like Pote has been particularly impressive with the 23-year-old scoring four goals in his last three matches in all competitions.

Sporting CP clean sheet – yes

Sporting CP will be hoping to overturn a disastrous defensive record against Belenenses with no clean sheets against this opponent since November 2019. The defending champions come into this match with a strong surge in form – at both ends of the pitch. Sporting Braga’s late goal is the only time Sporting Lisbon’s defence has been breached in the opening two matches.

Sporting CP vs Belenenses: Match Preview and Team News

Sporting CP

Sporting CP are aiming to become the top Portuguese club by a considerable margin. In such an instance, it is just not sufficient to winning the league title once every decade or so. The clear ambition for Sporting CP is to retain the title and manager Rúben Amorim is showing fine signs leading the team for this third consecutive season.

Belenenses

Belenenses are hoping to build on last season’s 10th place finish, but the manner in which the team has started the season conveys a potential replay of the 2019-20 season in which the club barely avoided relegation. Belenenses could only be without Sandro for this match.
