It was Hector Herrera whose late stoppage-time goal made the difference between the Portuguese heavyweights. Can the Mexican midfielder inspire the new success against the second Lisbon heavyweight on Wednesday evening? Azuis e Brancos defend a 1-0 cushion from the first leg of Taca da Portugal final. A success here would open up the way for the double crown for Sergio Conceicao and his men since the rival in the final of the competition will likely be Desportivo Aves.

Sporting CP went through a turbulent period in recent weeks. They are out of the contest of the tizle being five points behind Porto and they will be desperate to go all the way in Cup at last.

Sporting CP vs Porto: Head-to-head

This will be the fifth head to head encounter between Sporting Lisbon and Porto.

The Lions were more successful in the League Cup semis elimination Porto on penalties after a goalless draw in regular time.

Porto won the first leg of this Taca da Portugal semifinal (1-0) as well as the recent league clash (2-1, while the first game of the season saw no goals at Estadio Do Dragao.

Sporting CP vs Porto: Prediction

The Lions somehow managed to steal the victory on Sunday evening away at Belenenses, but their defensive line showed plenty of vulnerabilities allowing as many as three goals. Jorge Jesus will be optimistic knowing that his men bagged four, though, particularly as they’ve only notched one in four head to head clashes with Porto this season.

The visitors showed a fantastic defensive display stopping Benfica from scoring on Sunday. Knowing about Sporting’s attacking woes in the previous clashes with Azuis e Brancos, we have reasons to expect another low-scoring contest.

To sum it all up, Under 2.5 goals FT will be our main option. Since we expect Porto to keep things tight at the back from the very first minute, you can alternatively back the goalless draw at the half time at the odds of 2.62.

Sporting CP vs Porto: Bet Tips

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66

Under 0.5 goals in the first half @ 2.62
