Moreirense vs Sporting Prediction & Match Preview

Moreirense vs Sporting
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 6 July 2020
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos)

The hosts are 8th in the points table after the recent win over Aves. This makes them unbeaten in three games on the trot. Even with a great scoring record, the defense has to up their game to reduce the number of draws. Currently, they have drawn more games than they have won or lost.

Sporting is high on confidence after back to back victories. The lasts of those came against Gil Vicente at home. Currently, they sit at the third position in the table with 55 points. But Champions League qualification is far from achievable as they have a 9 point gap between them and Benfica.

Moreirense vs Sporting: Prediction

Despite winning matches, Sporting has not found a working solution for their defensive troubles. They have conceded 30 goals, seventeen less than what they scored all season. This is the worst among the top three sides in the competition. In the latest games against mid-table teams like Guimaraes, Belenenses, and Gil Vicente they have given away silly goals even though they got all three points. At the same time, the home team has found the net in recent matches on the trot as well.

But a goal may not be enough for the hosts to grab all three points on Monday. They are facing one of the former champions who are in prime form. Sporting has dominated this opposition for over a decade. So I am backing the visitors to win with both teams getting in the score sheet.
