Venue: Estádio Municipal de Portimão.
Sporting Lisbon’s chance for becoming the Portuguese champions is now over as they play out the final two games of the season. They will go h2h with the hosting Portimonense at Estádio Municipal de Portimão, this Saturday.
The Green and whites are at the 2nd spot on the standing with 79 points from 32 games. They won 25 times in the league while drew on 4 and lost on 3 other occasions. The visitors already got qualified for the Champions League and even if they win the upcoming 2 games, they would only level on points with Porto.
Sporting Lisbon go into this match following a 4-1 Primeira Liga win against Gil Vicente in their last game. Goals have been scored 20 times in the previous 6 games in which they have involved, making it an average of 3.33 goals per meeting.
On the other side, Portimonense resides at the 12th position on the table with 35 points. Of the 32 matches played, they won 9 times in the league while drew on 8 and lost on 15 other occasions. They are 8 points safe from the drop zone and can possible end this season in safety as only 2 more games are remaining.
Portimonense will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 1-0 league loss in their previous game against Arouca. A common aspect of their most recent games is the number of nil scores. Taking their previous 6 clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring, would have been a losing one.
