Sporting vs União da Madeira – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For this match, considering how favoured Sporting are, I see a lot of value on the goals market.
Jorge Jesus has stated that he not only expects to win, but also comfortably, because that might be a decisive factor for his team’s qualification.
The home side has arguments to fulfill this over by themselves, although União has also been standing out in that chapter, since they were able to score in 11 of their last 13 matches.
