Tip Reasoning

  • Sporting have won each of their last seven matches against Portimonense, covering a -1 handicap in five.
  • Sporting have covered a -1 handicap in their last two home league games, winning both 2-0.
  • Sporting have beaten Portimonense 2-0 in their last two meetings.

Suspension-hit visitors could struggle in Lisbon

Both Sporting and Portimonense are going to be without suspended players for Wednesday’s Primeira Liga meeting, but the champions are best-equipped to cope.

Os Leos will miss centre-back Luis Neto and attacking midfielder Bruno Tabata, although they are not close to being guaranteed starters in Ruben Amorim’s strongest XI. A few others are making their way back from injury, but Sporting’s options remain plentiful.

Portimonense will be without banned duo Aylton Boa Morte, a dangerous winger, and goalscoring midfielder Carlinhos while defender Achraf Lazaar is injured and in-form attacker Shoya Nakajima is a doubt.

Sporting can cover the -1 handicap

The visitors could struggle in these circumstances and are probably best swerved in the match betting. Sporting have won seven of their eight home league games to date and only dropped points to their title rivals Porto, so should win this one. The match result price is short but reflects how dominant a side Amorim’s team are at home.

An alternative way in here is to back the hosts to win on the -1 handicap, which they have covered in their last two matches at the Alvelade and their last two meetings with Portimonense.

A 2-0 scoreline suits the way Sporting try to smother opponents’ attacks with their string structure and reflects the quality they possess up front too.
