Sporting – Benfica : Preview & Prediction
Sporting CP, 4th in the championship, which is 16 lengths from Benfica, leader, has lost all hope of a national title in recent weeks. Since mid-December, Sporting CP has lost 2 games in its last 5 outings, to Linzer ASK (3-0) in the Europa League and against FC Porto (1-2) in the league on January 5. The training of Emanuel Ferro remains on 1 success on the lawn of Vitoria Sétubal (3-1) last weekend. This season, Sporting CP has already lost 4 times at home against Rio Ave (2-3 and 1-2), against Famaliçao (1-2) and in front of FC Porto (1-2) and the latter could suffer a new poor performance against a Lisbon team which is on an excellent dynamic. Indeed, in Liga Sagrès, Carlos Vinicius’ partners have aligned 13 victories over their last 13 league games and have just obtained 3 successes on the field of Vitoria Guimaraes (1-0), against Desportivo Aves (2-1 ) and against Rio Ave (3-2) in the Portuguese Cup.
