Liga Portugal
Date: Monday, 14 March 2022
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Kick-off at Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas (Moreira de Conegos).

Sporting CP look for a win against Moreirense to keep the battle for league title alive with Porto staying 6 points clear at the top of Liga Portugal.

The visitors have a just perfect away record this season and this far registered 8 wins and 3 draws from 12 matches.

Meanwhile, Moreirense will be desperate for a win as well after dropping to relegation waters following the recent home defeat to Maritimo.

A win will lift them to safety temporarily, but this is something they haven’t achieved against the team from Lisbon in the past two 2 decades.

Moreirense vs Sporting CP Predictions

Moreirense have fared poorly while coming up against decent oppositions and therefore a top-class team like Sporting must win here without any fuss. The visitors are offered at 1.42 odd, and we combine this with the over 2.5 goals to make the most of the stake and boost the odds up to 2.35.

Islam Slimani’s recent form is a welcome boost in Sporting’s title quest. The Algerian striker scored three goals in the two league appearances since returning from injury and he is offered at excellent value to net anytime the Almeida Freitas.
