Sporting – FC Porto : Preview & Prediction
Porto goes to his dolphin in Liga NOS on behalf of the semi-finals of the Portuguese League Cup. A real blockbuster, between undefeated Dragons since 19 games – including 10 consecutive victories – and a SP coming to chain 10 outings without the slightest defeat. Unable to decide at the Jose Alvalade stadium (0-0) at the beginning of the season, the two giants will this time have to fight, even to go through extra time. Undefeated in their last 12 games against FC Porto in front of their home crowd, the men of Jorge Jesus clearly do not consider failure, they really need to win trophies. We expect a big match, full of intensity. Who will win his ticket for the final?
14 of the last 15 confrontations between Sporting and Porto have seen less than 2.5 goals!
Porto and Sporting had separated on a draw in Lisbon at the start of the season, as part of the championship.
Sporting have conceded only one goal in their last eight outings at the Jose Alvalade stadium.
The physical density when Sporting faces Porto is always unbelievable: there are few confrontations rich in goals. There have been less than three goals scored in 14 of the last 15 games and it is hard to imagine how this high-stakes semi-final could contradict the statistics. Less than 2.5 goals is the obvious bet.
