Sporting CP vs Chaves
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Sunday, 11th November 2018
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade (Lisabon).
One of the best teams in the Portugal Primeira Liga, Sporting CP, hosts Chaves, a relegation-battler in the same league.
Chaves will be disheartened as they lost a home game last week against Aves, with a scoreline of 1-2. The first goal was scored by the visitors. Though Chaves equalized later, Aves held on their nerves and scored the winner.
Sporting CP will be on high spirits after completing a comeback victory against Santa Clara on the road. A first-half goal by Ze Manuel saw Sporting trailing for much of the game. But two goals by the visitors in the space of 12 minutes saw them complete a proud victory.

Sporting CP vs Chaves Prediction
Sporting is a team battling for European glory while their opponents are struggling to stay alive in their domestic league. The difference in quality is so apparent that this will probably be one of the easiest match to place bets this week.
Sporting currently occupies the third spot in the table, which ensures a place in the Europa League next season. Two teams lie above them, with just a lead of two points. Those spots open the way to Champions League participation.
If Sporting wins this match, and those two teams drop points, the hosts have a good chance to top the league. Expect the home team to go out on all-out-war mode to secure the three points.
Chaves is placed 17th in a league of 18 teams. They have lost their last three league matches in a row. From their nine matches so far, they could record just two games where no point was dropped. The trend will continue this weekend in all probability.
Expect a win for Sporting. The hosts will easily win both halves.
