Sporting CP vs Tondela Match preview
Sporting has lost just one of their last seven league fixtures, with each of their previous three victories coming without reply in ninety minutes. The hosts are one of just two sides that haven’t drawn a league game at home as they comprise 9 wins and 4 losses in their 13 attempts so far.
Tondela ended a six-game winless run in the league last time out at home against Aves with a 2-0 score on the board. However, that scoreline is just the first time Tondela had slotted in more than one goal within their last 13 fixtures.
The host has not lost to Tondela in any of their meetings at this venue since 2016. But the fact that three of their four unbeaten games were draws doesn’t suffice for an easy win. With the visitors in a poor form on the road lately, the Lions might just get away with all three points.
