Today at 22:30 EEST is scheduled the most important match of the 30th round of the Portuguese championship, where Sporting vs Benfica will be protagonists, the two rivals will meet on “Estádio José Alvalade”, where I anticipate a match in which the goals will be what will make us profit.
Sporting Lisbon is seen as an outsider of many bookmakers, a fact that does not surprise anyone, they will face the portuguese championship leader, but he has the advantage of his own field, and with the help of supporters, he could get a positive result.
Sporting is currently ranked 3rd in the Portuguese championship, with the goal of securing the Champions League place. In 29 stages so far, Jorge Jesus’s team has gathered 63 points, managing 19 wins and 6 draws, suffering 4 defeats, in these games scoring 58 goals, cashing 27.
It should be mentioned that Sporting Lisbon is in a big form, coming after a series of nine games without failure, in which they managed eight victories and one draw.
Benfica on the other side is slightly favorite this evening, according to the odds offered by most betting agencies, but one thing is certain, it will not have a easy game, going away, against a team in great shape.
“Eagles” have a good season, this time being the first place in the rankings, but can not afford missteps, given that FC Porto is only three points behind. In 29 stages so far, Rui Vitoria’s team has gained 71 points, managing 22 wins and 5 draws, losing only twice, in these games scoring 61 goals, cashing only 14.
Benfica comes after a series of six games without failure, but it should be mentioned that in these 6 games they only got 3 victories and draw 3 times.
Sporting vs Benfica : Probable Teams
SPORTING : Rui Patricio – Jefferson, Semedo, Coates, Schelotto – Cesar, Silva, Carvalho, Martins – Ruiz – Dost
BENFICA : Moraes – Grimaldo, Lindelof, Luisao, Nelsinho – Rafa, Fejsa, Pizzi, Salvio – Jonas – Mitroglou
Initially, my bet goes to the hosts, which I expect to get a positive result, but given that we are talking about a derby, I will bet on goals, at least one scored in the first half is enough to bring us profit.
