Gil Vicente vs Sporting CP
Portugal – Liga Portugal
Date: Saturday, 18 December 2021
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estádio Cidade de Barcelos.

Sporting are the reigning champions of the competition, and are once again in the running for another title. However, arch-rivals Porto are in the race as well, and the title-holders have no option but to keep going with their great performances.

This weekend, they are pitted against Gil Vicente, who have been largely inconsistent lately. On top of that, they also have an inferior h2h record against this foe over the years.

For the reasons, expect the defending champs to secure another win this Saturday at the Estádio Cidade de Barcelos.
