Porto – Sporting Lisbon: Soccer Prediction
On the one hand the clash of the highest level between Porto and Sporting Lisbon, on the other hand, an unprecedented Desportivo Aves-Caldas. Let’s say that if we were to decide which of the two Portuguese Cup semi-finals to look at, from simple international football fans we would have little doubt. They went home for the Dragoes who have to take advantage of them to take advantage of the 180 ‘challenge against the bitter rivals of Sporting. Recently, Sporting has eliminated the Porto from the League Cup, but only thanks to penalties. The owners, therefore, dream of a revenge: the two teams, for another, are also tallonano in the league …
The Porto is first in the standings with its fifty-two points, pursued by the Sporting who is second on equal points (fifty) with Benfica (but the Dragoes have a game less).
The League Cup race, as mentioned, was decided on penalties, but in the regular time the result remained crystallized on 0-0.
On the other hand, the championship match already disputed was 0-0, even if it was played in Lisbon and not as in this case in Oporto.
The Sporting has some problems from the offensive point of view and in fact they have finished Under 2.5 all his last five races.
In addition, the green-and-whites arrive from a bad defeat in the league against Estoril, in which they could not find the way to the net (2-0 the final).
When facing the big players in the Portuguese league, there are almost no spectacular matches and many goals, both because the tension is always at the top, and because the defenses often have the best of their respective attacks. So we are not expecting a “fireworks” competition, especially at the start, since we then play on the 180 ‘: therefore we choose an Under 1.5 first half.
