Reason For Sporting Lisbon vs Portimonese Predictions

  • Sporting have won 5 of their last 6 matches against Portimonense.
  • Sporting have won 5 times at home this season.
  • Portimonense have lost 5 times on the road this season.
  • Portimonense have failed to score in 50% of their away games.

Portimonense have struggled to score goals on the road

Sporting went down 1-0 away at in form Braga last time out while Portimonense also suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to mid-table Tondela, which means the gap between the two clubs remains at 18pts. Sporting have already beaten Portimonense twice this season, once on the league 3-1 and then in the Taca da Liga 4-2, and we have backed Sunday’s hosts to win by a 2-goal margin once again this weekend.

Sporting have won five of their last six matches against Portimonense but both clubs head into this weekends’ clash in poor form, with Sporting winning two and losing four of their last six matches and Portimonense losing three, drawing two, and losing one during that same period of games. The visitors have failed to score in three of their last four league games which will be a concern heading into a tough away game against 4th placed Sporting.

The hosts have won five times at home this season and are yet to draw in their own backyard while Portimonense have lost five times on the road and have only won once on their travels. Sporting average 1.67 points per home game and Portimonense average 0.70 points per away game, with the hosts winning 56% of those matches and the visitors losing 50% of theirs.

When Sporting keep a clean sheet at home they win

Sporting score an average of 1.44 goals per home game which is above the league average of 1.33 goals while Portimonense score an average of just 0.60 goals per away game and concede an average of 1.60 goals, which is why we have backed the hosts to claim a 2-0 victory this weekend.

Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 60% of Portimonense’s away games as well as 46% of Sporting’s home games this season, and the hosts have kept clean sheets in 33% of their home matches while the visitors have failed to score in 50% of their away trips. Exactly 2-goals have been scored in 33% of Sporting’s home games and 40% of Portimonense’s away games, and we have backed that same total to be produced this weekend.

Sporting have won via a 2-goal margin or more on five occasions this season while four of Portimonense’s defeats have also been a margin or 2-goals or more, adding further weight to our prediction for a 2-0 home win on Sunday. Each time Sporting have kept a clean sheet at home they have gon on to secure all 3pts and that’s just what we expect the hosts to do this weekend.

We’re confident that Sporting will win-to-nil on Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. Sporting might not be in the best of form but neither are their guests and so far this season, the hosts have outplayed Portimonense in all departments. Sporting have already beaten their guest twice this season in different competitions and will, therefore, be confident of securing a much-needed win on Sunday.
