Sporting CP Benfica betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals. We expect the home team to play as they have done so far, that is, to come in strong into the match and allow few spaces, keeping a high match pace. Therefore, we expect an intense match with goal opportunities for both teams.

Sporting and Benfica face at José Alvalade Stadium, Lisbon, in a match for the 4th round of the Portuguese Cup.
The head to head favours the home team, since in the last 5 matches there were 3 draws and 2 wins by Sporting Lisbon.

However, it’s important to notice that the last time these two teams met at this stadium the final score was 1-1. Jefferson opened up the score (87’) and Jardel got the equalizer (94’) near the end.

Analysis Sporting CP

The home team comes to this match motivated by a 0-1 away win over Arouca: Slimani was the hero of the match, having scored the winning goal near the end (90’).

Sporting’s best period in home matches is the last 15’ of the match, in which they have scored the most goals. It’s also important to notice that they usually concede more goals in the second half.

Coach Jorge Jesus’s team, former Benfica’s coach, has opened the score 7 times in the last 10 matches and held on to the lead in 6 of them. The only time they conceded the first goal they were unable to turn the score around.

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Ewerton, Jefferson, João Pereira, Paulo Oliveira, Adrien Silva, João Mário, William Carvalho, Bryan Ruiz, Fredy Montero, Islam Slimani.

Analysis Benfica

The away team comes to this match after a 2-0 home win against Boavista, with goals by Gonçalo Guedes and Carcela.

Benfica is therefore motivated for this match, coming from a 3 consecutive win sequence, but also because this is a derby between two of the best Portuguese teams and there is great rivalry between them.

The best moment of the team in away matches is in the first 15’ of the match, since they have scored 4 goals in this period in the last 10 matches. Finally, it’s worth noticing that they have opened up the score 6 times in the last 10 matches.

Confirmed Lineup: Júlio César, Eliseu, Jardel, Luisão, Silvio, Andreas Samaris, Gonçalo Guedes, Nicolás Gaitán, Pizzi, Anderson Talisca, Konstantinos Mitroglou.
