Portugal – Portuguese Liga: Benfica vs Sporting Betting Preview

The clash of the top-two teams in Portuguese Liga, the big Lisbon’s derby between Benfica and Sporting.


The home side have a great chance to take all three points and make a difference of 5 points. Benfica play very good this season, they are still undefeated at home this season.

Salvio (2/0 m) and André Almeida (5/0 m) are both out, but they didn’t play too much this season so I could say that they are “not important” absences.

Sporting play good this season, but their recent form is pretty bad for the team which have title ambitions. Sporting didn’t score on 3 of their last 4 matches.

Jefferson (14/0 d) is injured, while William Carvalho (17/2 m) is suspended.

The last 5 matches between those two teams in Portuguese Liga when Benfica was a host were finished with 5 Benfica wins and on all those matches Sporting didn’t score.

Benfica is a big favorite in this match, they will be fully motivated upfront their supporters and I believe they could win this one.
