Sporting lost the last match-day on the road, against Tondela, for a sole goal. And the winner had come in the 88th minute, which will definitely ignite some fires in the minds of the players.
Belenenses recorded a similar 1-0 win at home against Ferreira, but it deserves mentioning that they had lost their latest away tie 5-0.
This weekend, a brief glance into the h2h stats would be enough to determine how the game would turn out. Sporting has overwhelmingly dominated this opponent for a very long time, and especially so at home. Just their most recent encounter, for which Belenenses had home advantage, Sporting decimated the rivals with a 1-8 scorecard.
In addition, at this stadium, in h2h meetings, the hosts have lost just once since early 2000, which is certainly a frightening streak.
Finally, Sporting is one of the best teams in the competition by a mile, whereas Belenenses is considered to be a comparatively lighter opponent.
As such, count on the hosts, Sporting to emerge victorious this match-day, that too in style.
