Sporting CP vs Chaves
Portugal – Liga Portugal
Date: Saturday, 27 august 2022
Kick-off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Jose Alvalade.
Sporting CP have been one of the best teams in the Portuguese top flight for the past several years and especially so during the previous campaign. Meanwhile, Chaves have been one of the best of the second division and achieved the first division promotion after finishing third in that season.
Chaves have recorded win, draw and lose one apiece upon returning to the elite class of Portuguese football. They have four points from three matches.
However, it is worth noting that Campelos’ men indeed have had a tough schedule to begin with, featuring Vitoria Guimaraes, Maritimo and Vizela in the previous rounds.
The problem of Chaves lies in the defensive line which allowed goals in all three match-days they have appeared so far this campaign.
Meanwhile, Sporting CP lost to the title winners FC Porto the previous round to end a streak of two unbeaten league games.
They showed some of their offensive potential in 2 of the previous 3 fixtures scoring three goals each. Like that of Chaves, Sporting CP’s problem lies in the defensive line which allowed three or more goals in two of the inaugural three games pf the season.
