Tip Reasoning

  • Boavista lost 4-0 at Maritimo last week, putting in their worst performance of the season.
  • Boavista are without three suspended players, including top scorer Petar Musa.
  • Sporting have won each of their last three away league games by exactly two clear goals.

Lions licking their wounds after a crushing week

Sporting can finish a bad week on a high by beating a Boavista side that are going to be without several key players for Monday’s game at Estadio do Bessa. Os Leoes couldn’t overturn the first-leg deficit against Porto on Thursday and so – with a nine-point gap to make up and just four games left – their season is over.

Ruben Amorim will not want to lose a third game on the trot for the first time in his time at the Alvalade and his actions in dropping Islam Slimani from the cup tie sends a stern message to the rest of the squad while he publicly backs his men.

Sporting catch a break here anyway with Petit shorn of three key players for the game because of suspensions and a handful of others missing through injury. The absence of 10-goal top scorer Petar Musa could be crucial to the outcome of the game as Boavista created virtually nothing in their 4-0 loss at Maritimo last night and will need to take anything that comes their way on Monday.

Boavista coming off abysmal showing in Madeira

Boavista’s xG of 0.14 in Funchal is a big part of why we think they lose – and by more than one goal – here. The Chequered Ones’ overall home form this term has been decent and indicates a chance of picking up another draw – as ten of their previous 15 have been stalemates. 

But they were 4-0 down to Maritimo – a team that had lost three of their previous four games – before even being reduced to ten men, so this should be a comfortable evening for the Lisbon club. Sporting have won each of their last three away league games by exactly two clear goals and we feel the best correct score play for this would be 2-0 to the outgoing champions.
