Tip Reasoning

  • Sporting have won their last nine league games in a row and ten of the last 11 head-to-head meetings with Gil Vicente.
  • Leoes have won five of their six away league games this season, but only twice by more than one goal.
  • Gil Vicente have scored in five of their seven home games and average more than a goal per game at home (1.57).

Sporting seek tenth straight league win

Champions Sporting Lisbon will bid for ten league wins in a row when they travel to Barcelos to face mid-table Gil Vicente on Saturday evening.

The Lions have got the scent of another title in their nostrils again after the memory of this season’s early struggles was long banished by a superb recent run. Victory over rivals Benfica was followed up with a routine 2-0 win over Boavista last time out.

Ruben Amorim then fielded a team of mainly fringe players in midweek against Penafiel and came away with a 1-0 Taca de Liga success too. Sporting, therefore, should be relatively fresh for this trip to Barcelos to take on a team they have generally had their way with over recent seasons.

Leoes should taste victory against Roosters

Leoes have tasted victory in ten of the last 11 head-to-head meetings with Gil Vicente and should do so again here as the hosts have – like many of their mid-table rivals – been better on the road this term. The Roosters were beaten 2-0 at home by Benfica in August and Porto came away with a 2-1 victory in September, so we would expect something similar from the reigning champions.

If Sporting are truly on song then anything is possible, but only two of their five road wins this season have been by more than a goal, so it’s probably safer to stick with the odds-in match result bet rather then take on any handicaps here.

A 2-1 scoreline is forecast – based on Sporting averaging just under two goals per game on their travels with 0.66 conceded and never more than once in any game.
