Sporting vs Portimonense – Liga NOS: This Sunday afternoon in Alvalade, Sporting hosts Portimonense in another match of Liga NOS’ 15th round.
Sporting is in joint 1st place at the top of the table of the Portuguese league with 36 points conquered, thanks to 11 wins and 3 draws. Their goal record has 30 goals scored and 9 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.8 goals per match.
So far, their home record presents 5 wins and 2 draws, against FC Porto and Braga. Their goal scoring prowess seems to be on point, since they have scored 7 goals on the last 2 matches they played.
Sporting’s moment of form is very positive, getting 6 wins and 1 loss on their last 7 matches in all competitions.
Portimonense occupies the 11th place of Liga NOS with 16 points conquered, thanks to 4 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses.
On the 14 rounds already played, the visiting team has already scored 22 goals and conceded 24, which results on an average of 3.3 goals per match (highest of the competition).
Along with Rio Ave, Portimonense is other of the teams that I enjoy in this league, by the dynamic and vivacity their offensive sector presents.
I highlight here their ease in creating goal chances, being even the 5th best attack of the competition, behind the 3 giants and Braga.
Sporting vs Portimonense – Betting Tip and Prediction:
As we have already seen sometimes, the Lions’ defence seems to complicate when they are in the lead.
On the last 9 matches they played, Sporting only kept a clean sheet against the humble Vilaverdense, Belenenses that has been struggling to score and Famalicão that inclusively missed a penalty on the last minute.
In turn, Portimonense maintain their playing philosophy no matter what stadium they play in,
so it’s not strange to see that they have scored in other tough trips such as Benfica, FC Porto (twice), Braga or Vitória de Guimarães.
