Sporting defence solid enough to deny Arouca

For much of this season, Sporting Lisbon have been a pale shadow of the team that ended their 19-year title wait in thrilling style last May.

The summer departures of a couple of key players plus an injury to 2020-21 top scorer Pote has denuded Ruben Amorim of difference-makers – so it is to his credit that they remain only four points off the top.

Returning to the Champions League table has not yet had an affect because Sporting earned a solid 1-0 win at Estoril in the immediate aftermath of their 5-1 thrashing at Ajax, but the next challenge will be to win at Arouca a few days after an energy-sapping trip to Germany.

Amorim will try to freshen things up for the clash with a team that have never beaten the Lions and appear to be struggling defensively after promotion.

Armando Evangelista’s men have conceded at least two goals in six of their first seven league games and picked up only one win so far.

Arouca are a spirited side – as shown by the fact that all five of their points this season have been recovered from losing positions and they won’t fold easily if Sporting get the opener on Saturday.

But the champions remain defensively sound, having only conceded three times in seven games themselves, so we are favouring an ‘unders’ bet on the goals ahead of the match result betting.
