Tip Reasoning

  • Sporting scored at least twice in 11 of the last 12 competitive H2Hs.
  • Eight of Sporting’s 12 home league victories also saw a 2+ goal margin.
  • Over three quarters of Gil Vicente’s away league goals were scored beyond HT (76%).

Win or bust for Sporting

With just three games remaining and a six point gap to bridge ahead of this round, Sporting know that it is win or die in terms of their faint hopes of winning the Portuguese title.

Realistically though, that goal is already dead in the water as it would rely on Porto not winning any of their last three games. As such, we could be witness to an entertaining spectacle between two sides who often deliver when meeting each other.

Five of the last six H2H meetings produced over 2.5 total goals, four of those games also saw both teams score while there were even three red cards brandished across the last three! As such, we expect an exciting affair to ensue yet again.

Go for goals

Gil Vicente arguably have a greater need to win than Sporting as the European hopefuls are on a current five-game winless run (D3, L2), which has in turn reduced their gap to the rest of the league to just five points.

Gil Vicente cannot end this round outside of the European positions, though they know that four more points from the final three games should be enough to secure passage into the Conference League qualifiers.

We predict that this game will see over 2.5 goals, which in itself provides much better value than backing Sporting to keep their forlorn title hopes alive at a very short price. However, we are sticking with the hosts to win by a 3-1 scoreline in the correct score prediction.
