Famalicao vs Sporting CP Prediction
Famalicao lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Ferreira. The fact that they missed to fire in the penalty (which would have been the equalizer) in the 90+8th minute, plus the subsequent red card, would really have hurt the confidence of the players.
In the meantime, Sporting delivered a 2-0 win at home, over Boavista. The win kept them above Rio Ave in the table. Both teams are locked in a race to secure a spot in one of the European positions.
Considering that Rio are taking on Porto this game-week, who could be termed as the absolute best team in the competition at the moment, Sporting could gain a considerable lead this Tuesday with a win. Especially so with this being their match in hand, they could deliver a huge blow to Rio.
It helps that Sporting were unbeaten in four of their former five games, and the sole loss in the process had come in the Europa. On the other hand, Famalicao are a newly-promoted team, and are on an eight-match winless run. At home, they have not secured a victory in the past five appearances as well.
Most importantly, disregarding a single match-up, Sporting hold a 100% winning record against this opponent in all other h2h battles this last two decades, and hold a perfect record at this venue. In fact, the last they even conceded a goal here was back in 2001. Likely, expect a totally dominating performance from Sporting this Tuesday.
