Our team rarely picks games from Portuguese Primeira Liga. Today we are going to make an exclusion and we are presenting to you the derby of Portugal – Sporting vs Benfica. The game is set to take place at Estadio Jose Alvalade. The kick-off of the match is at 20:15 GMT 0.
What to say about Sporting
Sporting has been far away from the leaders in Portuguese Liga Porto and Benfica. The team needs to better its performance and to maintain consistency in order to compete with the teams on the top. Sporting will struggle to get into the top 3 and participate in Europa Leauge. Some rumours claimed that the star of the team Bruno Fernandes will be sold to Manchester United in the coming days. That’s why we may not see him participating in the game tonight.
Benfica on the top
Benfica is on the top of the league with 15 wins out of 16 matches and a goal difference of 40-6. Quite impressive stats to say the least. The team has signed Julian Weigl from Borussia Dortmund earlier this month. The German will definitely provide more quality and width with the squad. Ruben Dias, Carlos Vinicius and Pizzi are the stars of the team this season. In our opinion, Benfica owns a more balanced squad and could take the win today despite the fact they are playing as guests. You can protect your bet by using the “Draw No Bet” option.
