Sporting CP to Win

Vizela’s defeat in the Portuguese League Cup to Estrela brought their winless run to seven fixtures. Couple this with Sporting CP’s 21-match unbeaten run at home, and it gets extremely difficult to bet in their favour. The Lions should make little work of the newly promoted outfit and start their title defence with a home victory.

Over 2.5 Goals

While Vizela has not had much luck on the road, they have found a way to get on the scoreboard. They match Sporting CP average of 1.96 goals in home games with their own away goal average of 1.74. Interestingly, the final scoreboard reading has been Over 2.5 goals in their past two meetings and that should continue in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: No

Taça de Portugal has been the reason for Sporting CP and Vizela coming together years past. The result has been in favour of the Lions but Vizela returned with their head held high, scoring three goals in their two meetings. While Alvaro Pacheco’s men are finding it hard to grind out results, we expect them to get on the scoreboard given their impressive scoring record on the road. They have sent 8 strikes past rival goalkeepers in their last five fixtures and should be able to build on this tally.

Sporting CP vs Vizela Fixture Preview

Sporting CP

Primeira Liga bowed down to Ruben Amorim’s men last time around and it remains to be seen how the Lions react as champions. They have impressed going forward and put Braga to the sword in the Super Cup. However, chinks in their armour were witnessed as they conceded a goal from Braga’s two shots on target. Moving forward, they will have to improve on this while the likes of Tabata and Jovane Cabral are allowed to wreak havoc in the opposition’s final third.

FC Vizela

Promotion to the domestic top-flight football is never easy and Vizela are finding it out even without a ball being moved. Their preparations for the Primera Liga could not have gone any worse, as they failed to post a single victory in preseason fixtures. These omens point towards a long season ahead barring a miraculous changing of paths that Alvaro Pacheco can fashion. In Cassiano, they have a proven goalscorer and one hopes for their sake that he finds his scoring shoes at the first time of asking.
