Tip Reasoning

  • Sporting have scored fewer than three goals in ten of 13 home league games this season.
  • Pacos Ferreira have conceded fewer than three goals in 12 of 13 away league games in 2021-22.
  • Four of the last six league meetings between the clubs have finished 2-0 to Sporting, including the last three.

Sporting seem to settle for less at home

Sporting, playing a day ahead of their Primeira Liga title rivals, will try to put pressure on leaders Porto again when they face Pacos Ferreira on Sunday night. The match result odds suggest nothing other than a home win here and it would be easy to think that Sporting could have this wrapped up by half-time.

Despite playing with authority at home, where they have won 11 of their 13 league games this term, Os Leos have been more potent on the road this term – averaging more than two goals per game opposed to just less than two at the Alvalade.

That pattern could be one to latch onto when one of the better-organised defences in Portugal arrive in Lisbon. Cesar Peixoto’s side have kept five clean sheets in their last seven away trips, albeit all against clubs at seventh place or lower in the current table.

Beavers’ backline have been racking up clean sheets on the road

While not seriously suggesting the Beavers could build a dam in front of their goal and grab a 0-0 draw on Sunday night, there is scope in opposing home goals here. Sporting have scored fewer than three goals in ten of 13 home league games this season.

Pacos Ferreira have conceded fewer than three goals in 12 of 13 away league games in 2021-22 so this isn’t just a recent phenomenon.

However, Sporting – with all their stars back unscathed from international duty – should dominate the game and we feel will still run out 2-0 winners. The Lions have won four of their last ten games by that score and the last three league meetings between the clubs have also finished that way.
