Tip Reasoning

  • Porto have won only one of their last 16 away league and cup matches against Sporting.
  • Sporting have not lost a home league game for 20 months (W 23, D 5 of 28 games).
  • Both teams have scored in six of the last eight meetings between these sides

Super Sporting offer classic value 

The first classic encounter of the season in Portugal pits champions Sporting with the team they pipped to the title last season – Porto – on Saturday.

It should be an intense game with plenty of quality on show as these two have begun the 2020-21 campaign well and each sit just two points behind early pacesetters Benfica.

Bar last season’s drab encounter at the Dragao, clashes between these clubs usually provide goals and with both teams having scored in six of the last eight meetings that could be a good place to start.

But the odds for the hosts to win this Saturday’s game are too good to ignore based on the record of Ruben Amorim’s side at the Alvalade.

Sporting have won their last five home Primeira Liga games and, going back a couple of years, have been victorious in a remarkable 82% of their league games on home turf since their last defeat there.

Porto may be good, and they are undefeated in their last nine aways including a Champions League quarter-final at Chelsea, but they must be fearful of what Sporting can produce in front of their own fans.

We’re taking Amorim’s well-drilled unit to prevail 2-1 on Saturday because they remain the class act in Portugal for now.
