Tip Reasoning

  • Sporting have won 24 of their 30 home Primeira Liga matches since their last defeat at the Alvalade.
  • Sporting have scored four goals in each of their last two games since the return to fitness of striker Pote.
  • Moreirense have failed to score in their last two Primeira Liga away games.

Sporting set for standard win to nil

Sporting Lisbon are emerging from the other side of an early-season injury crisis without too much damage to their objectives and can pick up another win in front of an expectant Alvalade crowd on Saturday.

Os Leos have rarely disappointed their home fans in almost two years now and, since their last home reverse to Benfica, Ruben Amorim’s men have won 24 and drawn six of the subsequent league games they have hosted.

The visit of Moreirense is unlikely to snap that streak as the Portuguese champions appear to be playing their most fluid football of the season so far right now, having just taken Besiktas apart 4-1 in Turkey.

Set pieces could be key to victory

Os verdes e brancos are a hard-working outfit that have competed well in all their league games this season bar one – the 5-0 defeat they were handed by Porto. Set piece situations were their undoing that day and Sporting will certainly fancy their chances of exploiting any weakness there given they scored from two identical corner routines and won a penalty from another in midweek.

Our belief is that Sporting can win to nil, which offers a better return than supporting the hosts to win by more than a goal. Amorim’s side have kept five clean sheets in their last seven home league games, only conceding to Porto and an 89th-minute consolation when 5-0 up against Maritimo.

Our prediction of 2-0 to the champions is based on that scoreline being slightly more frequent (five times) than a 1-0 outcome (four times) across the 16 home league games they have played in 2021.
