FC Porto – Sporting Lisbon – One of the biggest derby of the Portuguese football is somewhat suddenly become a lot more important than it was a few rounds seemed to be. And Porto and Sporting are due to some unexpectedly weak results in other sensible behind the leader Benfica, but he and the team made some fliers, so that they now approached Porto on a single point and are very much back in the game for the title. Sporting is in a difficult situation and they in relation to the Porto have six points less, and it is clear that this team without a win in this derby, definitely out of the race for the title. In the first season of the Sporting won the match with Porto 2: 1 and it is for this team to win a championship, and won the Sporting last season and at the Dragao stadium, so that the host now has a huge motivation.
Porto is back in a very serious combinations to win the league title and will have to thank some teams that are unexpectedly surprised Benfica and so all again so interesting. Of course, makes a lot of things and Porto, who did not let up after his last blunder away with Ferreira, when they played 0: 0, sequenced three championship victories. Porto No more obligations in Cup competitions, because of both fire and left their championship and Champions League.

Sporting is more realistic to say that by the end of the season to fight to retain third place that leads to qualification for the Champions League, but will engage in the fight for the title, because city rivals Benfica escapes big seven points, while Sporting often play a very bad a match and setbacks is already too much. At home not so much because they just beat Braga front of their fans, with another draw, or away Sporting game average and the last two against Maritima and Chaves are only drew and both times with 2: 2nd It is this two consecutive draws them and deducted four points, which is why now and are in a marked disadvantage.
And Sporting’s poor play Cups, and recently defeated by Chaves dropped from the national Cup, so that is not there will not be comforting to the trophy. In the last round of priority they finally managed to win and it seems that all the rage because of earlier failures vented to the team Ferreira, which are a little more than half an hour gave three goals. Later the two and received and again a little anxious about the triumph, but the club’s best scorer Dost, scored the final 4: 2nd In this game the midfielder Carvalho booked, and now we can not play and this is the biggest problem for coach Jesusa.
