Reason For Portimonense vs Sporting Lisbon Predictions

  • Sporting have won the last five meetings between the pair but have conceded on each occasion
  • Sporting conceded in 14 of their 17 away league games last term
  • Portimonense have failed to score in only five of their last 17 home league assignments

The net should bulge at both ends

Portimonense stayed up by the skin of their teeth last term and with goals hard to come by, another season of struggle is anticipated.

Portimonense netted just 30 goals in 34 league games last term, with them good enough to win only seven of those fixtures. That said, five of those wins came at home and they have scored in each of their last five meetings with Sporting, albeit only in defeat.

Sporting were 2-0 winners at Pacos De Ferreira in the opening game of the season but they conceded in 14 of their 17 away games last term and defensively they aren’t as reliable as they once were.

Sporting, spearheaded in attack by the impressive Jovane Cabral, should prevail but they were in Europa League action on Thursday, so may not be as dominant as expected.

Portimonense also scored twice in home meetings with Porto and Benfica last season and their sole home meeting with Pacos De Ferreira this season saw the net bulge at both ends, in a 1-1 draw.

For all their struggles last season, Portimonense failed to score in only five of their last 17 home league assignments and backing both teams to score makes most appeal.

Sporting have won the last two meetings 2-1 and we predict a repeat outcome here.
