[ Portugal Primera Liga ] Sporting Lisbon VS Benfica 23.4 [Copy Link]

Sporting CP: Receives headliner at the best possible time ( Recent Form: W W W W W )
How much this derby live in Portugal is mainly guided by the amount of articles published daily in the three major Portuguese football leagues. This morning, former Sporting spokesman Liédson spoke about his expectations for the derby, in which he did not quite surprisingly note that Sporting will win. A victory of green-white seems a realistic scenario. Os Leões (De Leeuwen) are in top form and feature Jorge Jesus about a trainer who knows the whip. Between 2009 and 2015 he was successful as Benfica's coach, the club he is familiar with. In the mutual duels with Benfica trainer Rui Vitória, 3-2 is in favor of Jorge Jesus. Additionally, Sporting players have been able to live this game for weeks. Before the winter break, the green whites were already switched off in Europe and one week after the winter stop in the cup. The lead at number four in the league, alternating Sporting Braga and Vitória Guimarães, has been around ten points for several months. As a result, Benfica has been watching the derby for weeks. Moreover, there is nothing to notice when looking at the results of the last few weeks. The last nine games yielded 8 wins and one draw. In that series, Bas Dost scored 12 times, making him still in the race for the Golden Shoe as Europe's top scorer. Apart from the form of Sporting, Dost's scoring drift and the experience of coach Jorge Jesus, the return of captain Adrien Silva is the next hopeful factor. The midfielder, who became European champion in Portugal last summer, was eliminated with knee injury for more than two months, but recently made his stallion.

Benfica: Finally, his ideal defense was found ( Recent Form: D D D W W )
The fact that the derby lives in east of Lisbon is clear: the tickets for the show were sold out within one and a half hours. By FC Porto's match match last week, the lead has grown to three points. A victory in Estádio José Alvalade brings Benfica another step closer to the title. The football rival O Jogo has selected this week that Benfica with the defense Semedo-Luisão-Lindelöf and Grimaldo, shortly before the Serbian Ljubomir Fejsa is virtually unbeatable. In the six games that played this fifth this season together (due to Grimaldo's long-term injury injury), it did not make any hits. The newspaper added to expect a defending Benfica, leaning on his strong defense. Not surprisingly, because a point is enough to maintain the headline with four more matches ahead. A great damper for As Aguías (the Eagles) is the physical condition of spit Jonas. The 33-year-old Brazilian has been injured all the season and has hardly contributed to group training this week. On the competition day it will be decided whether the goalkeeper can start. A new injury from Jonas would only be Benfica, as his companion in the attack, the Greek Mitroglou, is not his best time at Benfica. In the last 7 official matches in all league games, Mitrogol scored only twice. If Jonas is not fit enough, his place will be taken by Mexican Raul Jiménez, who, in turn, returns from physical malheur.

After all, its form, Bas Dost to score is a nice value. However, the highest value is the number of cards. In this derby will be played at the cutting edge of the cut. In the last 15 editions, only one less than 6 yellow cards have been distributed. The odds are not known yet, but a medium stake on more than 5.5 cards will yield a nice amount.

Sporting Lisbon  VS  Benfica

Pick: Under 2.5 @ 1.77.

POR D1    02:30    FT    Sporting Lisbon    1 - 1    Benfica
