Tondela vs Sporting – Liga NOS : We haven’t seen the best Sporting on Liga NOS, with the Lions showing some difficulties on the moments of offensive organization.
Problems that get worse without the decisive ability of Bas Dost, who is unavailable. Still, on the match against Feirense, although a bit allowed by their opponent, they were already more exciting offensively when compared to their previous match.
If you want a good example of what Sporting should look for, then the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half in Astana, where Sporting scored 3 goals,
in what is a good example of what they should look for, with Acuña and Gelson Martins appearing on the wings and Bruno Fernandes creatively leading the attack.
Therefore, Sporting would maybe need, at this stage, a more dynamic striker on the way he joins the collective game. Doumbia has been a little bit with his back turned to the team, but the goal he scored in Astana might help.
The trip to Kazakhstan and his return might be aspects with some weight on the way Sporting will show up in Tondela. Still, with the team managing their effort from the 60th minute, it is very likely that Sporting won’t be too fatigued.
Tondela has been managing to make a quiet campaign, only lacking now that moment where they assert themselves against a much stronger team, to take a leap in terms of recognition.
The team plays tendentially positive football, but very wise on the way they take advantage of the opponents’ weaknesses.
That will be what Pepa will focus on for this match, looking to focus on the zones of the pitch where Sporting might tremble, with several players in transition reaching the central corridor.
Tondela vs Sporting – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Still, this is a match that Sporting will look to solve without spending all their energy, because they will have another match in the Europa League soon.
