Sporting – the current leader
Sporting still goes unbeaten in Primeira Liga recording 12 wins and 3 draws out of 15 games. The Lions are the main contender for the title and will go for the derby with high confidence and determination. The win is not mandatory and decisive for the title but it will give the winner a significant advantage.
Benfica involved in the title race
Benfica is still recovering from the absences of many key players due to spread of COVID-19 within the team. Despite that, Benfica is still a serious title contender that can win all the teams in Primeira Liga. Due to the lead of Sporting on the top, Benfica should try to get something more than just a point from a boring draw.
It is a game hard to predict. But we think that both teams will be quite aware during the first half. Benfica should risk a little more and will be more attacking-minded. We expect seeing goals on both nets.
