Porto vs Sporting Match Preview & Team News
After four straight draws in all competitions, Porto booked two important victories. They celebrated against Juventus in the Champions League eight-finals after a very good display. However, things were not going well away to Maritimo, but a stoppage-time penalty brought them three points in Funchal. Sergio Conceicao’s side is ten points behind its upcoming rivals, and they desperately need a win. Sergio Oliveira and the lads are the most efficient team in the league, but Porto needs to improve the defense. The hosts conceded five times in a row, and some of those goals cost them vital points. Porto has been very confident at Estadio do Dragao, but they drew two times in the last three home games. They don’t have the right to make a mistake this time since the title is at stake.
Sporting enjoys an excellent campaign as the visitors are the only undefeated team in the Primeira Liga. Ruben Amorim’s side is on a hot run as they celebrated eight times in a row in all competitions. Pedro Goncalves and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ net with 43 goals scored. On the other hand, Sporting’s defense has been almost impeccable lately, as they conceded only twice in the previous eight games. The Lions allowed only three points to their rivals this season, which is a remarkable record. Sporting missed the chance to win only once on the road during the campaign, conceding just five goals at away grounds. The visitors want to continue the unbeatable run that can bring them closer to the title.
