Sporting – Benfica : Preview & Prediction
Sporting and Benfica will face each other this Monday, at 21:30, at Estádio José Alvalade, in a derby related to round 16 of Liga NOS. The Leonine team is the isolated leader of the competition, with 39 points, four more than FC Porto and six more than Benfica. Rúben Amorim’s men arrive at this match also motivated by the recent victory of the League Cup, having beaten Sporting de Braga 1-0 in the final. The reds, on the other hand, with an outbreak of covid-19, only won one of their last four games for the Liga NOS, but this Thursday guaranteed the qualification for the semi-finals of the Portuguese Cup, defeating Belenenses SAD by 3-0. Without the technician Jorge Jesus, also infected, the Eagles will now try to impose themselves in the stronghold of the Leon rival, who this season has not lost any game for the championship. A derby not to be missed.
