Over 2.5 Match Goals

Sporting Lisbon 3-2

Reason for tip

Sporting look good to edge this one against a Benfica side who have won just once across their last four home games. The hosts were beaten home and away by Real Sociedad in the Champions League recently and the visitors have faired well at their local rivals in recent years. With Sporting winning nine of 10 games this term, they look good to shade this with a thrilling victory.

Pedro Goncalves To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Pedro Goncalves hasn’t matched the other two players in Sporting’s impressive front three for goals this term, but he’s proving a man for big moments of late. He’s scored three in his last three games, including a midweek brace in Europe. The Portuguese has netted in recent away wins against Farense and Boavista, so back him for a goal on Sunday.

Benfica vs Sporting Lisbon Predictions

  • Five of the last six clashes have seen over 2.5 goals, with 24 scored in total
  • Sporting have won six straight league games, scoring at least twice in each
  • The previous two meetings in 2023 have both finished 2-2

Table-topping clash could go to visitors

Sunday night’s battle between Lisbon’s big two sees the pair leading the way in the Primeira Liga, with visitors Sporting three clear of Benfica at the summit. The pair meet for the third time in 2023, and this should be another thrilling contest.

The previous two clashes both finished 2-2, but that was before Sporting improved their forward line. This fixture has a history of brilliant clashes, with the pair sharing 24 goals across their last six meetings.

More goals should be on the cards here, with the pair both averaging over two goals per game in the league this term. Sporting have scored at least twice in every game as part of their recent six-game winning streak to move top, which should worry a Benfica side who have won once across their last four at home.

Sporting have won four straight games in all competitions, scoring 11 times along the way. They have the firepower to win this one, with Pedro Goncalves impressing. He forms part of a stellar Sporting front three, which could swing this towards the visitors.

Five of the last six meetings between the pair have seen over 2.5 goals scored and this should go the same way. That should suit the visitors, so take them to edge a thrilling contest.
