Tip Reasoning

  • Sporting have won six of their last eight away league games.
  • Both teams have scored in five of Sporting’s last seven away Primeira Liga fixtures.
  • Both teams have scored in seven of Portimonense’s last nine home league contests.

Sporting sticking the goals in as champions reign ends

Sporting Lisbon returned to winning ways at the weekend, but their year as Portuguese champions is now over as they play out the final two games of the season. Ruben Amorim’s men recorded their highest xG figure of the season and restricted fifth-placed opponents Gil Vicente to their lowest xG number since January.

Those stats augur well for another win this weekend when they travel to the Algarve to face a Portimonense side that had their top-flight safety confirmed on Monday when Tondela failed to win at Pacos de Ferreira. Paulo Sergio’s side won two crucial home games in April to get to 35 points, but lost all three of their away games in the month.

This will probably feel more like an away game for the hosts as Sporting fans usually outnumber theirs in the stadium and Portimonense are likely to be without the ball for long spells. Os Leoes have a very good away record and should win this game if their focus is right.

Slimani treatment a lesson to Amorim’s squad

We have no reason to suspect they won’t be professional about their business with Amorim’s recent ostracism of striker Islam Slimani a timely reminder to anyone thinking of giving less than 100 per cent.  But there could be value in adding in a both teams to score aspect to the Sporting win bet.

Both teams have scored in five of Sporting’s last seven away Primeira Liga fixtures and likewise in seven of Portimonense’s last nine home league contests. Sergio’s side have scored in ten of their last 11 home games including against both Benfica and Braga, so that should have a good chance of boosting profit margins.

A 3-1 away win resonates when it comes to forecasting the full time score as two of Sporting’s last three away league games have finished that way.
