      Sporting Lisbon vs Academica Predictions

      Sporting Lisbon have to keep winning if they want to retain their lead in the Portuguese Primeira Liga standings. Consistency has been a key factor in their play so far this season and they must now be considered very definite contenders for a first domestic league title since 2001.

      Last weekend they beat Pacos Ferreira 3-1, they’ve now won four of their last five, with the one non-win coming in the form of a 2-2 home draw against Tondela.

      Sporting are an exciting team, they’ve scored 40 times in 19 games and we’ll back them to keep that record going throughout the season.

      Still, they play an Academica on Saturday night who are playing better football themselves. Currently third from bottom, Academica have picked up four points in their last three games and even the 2-1 loss to Setubal was a pretty solid away effort.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Academica form

      They’ll keep their form going and manage a competitive match-up against Sporting Lisbon.

      2. Less intense Sporting

      Winning a game 3-0 requires a high level of intensity and we’re not convinced that Sporting will have that level of focus.

      3. Playing the odds

      Nothing happening on the Over 2.5 goals and Sporting to win markets, the Asian Handicap is the best place.
