Tip Reasoning

  • Benfica are undefeated in their last six home derby games in all competitions.
  • Sporting are yet to lose away from home this season in the league and have conceded just six times on their travels.
  • There have been fewer than three goals scored in total in each of Sporting’s last six away games.

Benfica good for a draw if Lions lack sharpness

Sporting earned the right to lord it over their Lisbon rivals this weekend by ending a 19-year wait for the Primeira Liga title in midweek.

They hit the woodwork twice before grabbing the only goal of the game against relegation-threatened Boavista, who had a big chance to level after the break.

But Ruben Amorim’s men held their nerves before celebrating long into Tuesday night – which could leave the Lions sleepier than usual for Saturday’s derby at the Estadio da Luz.

Sporting’s defence has been the bedrock of their title tilt and it is hard to see how Benfica can do any serious damage after struggling to break down basement club Nacional on Tuesday night.

Jorge Jesus’s side looked uninspired as they trailed for 70 minutes in Madeira before a late rally earned them the points to prolong their chase of Porto for the second Champions League spot.

While a draw won’t be enough for Benfica to take that tussle to the last match of the season, that looks the play here, as does a repeat of the 1-1 scoreline their match against Porto produced.
