Belenenses vs Sporting Lisbon
Portugal Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 27 December 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Nacional, Jamor.
Sporting Lisbon are looking very determined to end the draught this season and win title in Portuguese Primeira Liga. So far they have done tremendous work in 2020, having collected 26 out of possible 30 points. The last obstacle this year is Belenenses, 11th placed team which is only one point away from the relegation zone.
The Golden Lions have slipped on the last away day against Famalicao (2-2 FT), so they are surely going to take this clash very seriously. Other title contenders Benfica and Porto are just a couple of points behind. We were slightly surprised though how low odds are offered on the away win here – 1.45.

Belenenses vs Sporting Lisbon Prediction
Interestingly, these two teams have the best stats in the league when it comes to number of conceded goals so far – only seven in ten matches. The big difference is that Sporting Lisbon scored 24 goals in comparison to Belenenses’ five. Emmanuel Ferro’s machinery is heavily dependent on mood and form of 22-years old midfielder and team’s biggest star Pedro Goncalves.
This rising star bagged ten goals so far, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him make a move to some big club next summer. Sporting have won four out of the last five away days so far, while one ended without winner. Their opponents definitely don’t have the quality to stop them on the title journey, but hopefully can score at least one goal.
