Sporting Lisbon
    CSKA Moscow

      Tip Reasoning

      Both teams got their respective seasons off to an impressive start. Sporting have already won both of their competitive matches and since they are considered the favorites heading into the tie, it would be a major disappointment if they failed to progress here.

      After beating their city rival Benfica in the Portuguese Super Cup final, the spirits are high in the locker room and new manager Jorge Jesus is likely to start the same team in this one.

      Although they haven’t raised a trophy yet this season, as opposed to their opponents, the Russians have won all five of their competitive matches in the domestic championship so far and have already overcome one obsticle in the Champions League. After a 2:2 draw in the 1st leg and being 2:0 down in the return leg against Sparta Prague, CSKA produced a miracle comeback and knocked the Czech side out by winning the return leg 3:2.

      Although they showed some weaknesses in defence in those two Champions League matches against Sparta, those have been overcome in the Russian Championship it seems.

      Due to the fact that they are playing at home, we’re giving Sporting Lisbon a slight edge in the encounter and suggest a home win at 19/20 odds on bet365.
