Sporting CP win

Sporting CP have been doing much better than two of the closest rivals – Porto and Benfica – in the last few weeks. A sequence of five consecutive wins in all competitions will give the team a lot of confidence. Crucially, Vitoria Guimaraes will provide a big threat to the opposition based on the recent form, but Sporting CP have home advantage and the quality to come out with three points for the fifth time in the last six games against this opponent.

Total goals over 2.5

Vitoria Guimaraes may not have scored in the last two attempts against Sporting CP but they come into this match after having just scored three goals against Benfica. After starting the campaign on a strong defensive note, Sporting CP have just two clean sheets in the last five games. Unsurprisingly, four of these games have ended up producing more than 2.5 goals.

Goals from both teams – yes

Vitoria Guimaraes have scored in each of the last eight matches in all competitions. Sporting Lisbon have had a slight dip in the defensive attributes of the team. Vitoria Guimaraes will also be heavily motivated to score for the first time in three matches against Sporting CP.
