Porto vs Sporting – Liga NOS Soccer Prediction
The classic between FC Porto and Sporting opens a day that can be decisive for the number of candidates for the title that will remain in its final
Advantage, at the entrance to this game, entirely on the side of the blues and whites, who act in front of their audience and have five points difference to their pursuers.
Moreover, the team, even affected by absences, has been able to continuously find solutions within their squad, completely removing the idea of limiting it, compared to Sporting, for example, who also living complicating weeks in the physical management of his players (and affected by a virus), has suffered to maintain a high level of exposure.
Sérgio Conceição is expected to promote the return of injured Danilo Pereira and Aboubakar, important players in the team before they left the coach’s accounts and who, in this match, may have some important role.
The arrival of Danilo could imply a reformulation of the midfield, but believing that Herrera and Sérgio Oliveira maintains their positions.
Ricardo Pereira, Alex Telles and Tiquinho Soares should be absent, although Diogo Dalot, for what he faced Portimonense, and Maxi Pereira, for their experience, should not shake against Sporting.
Jorge Jesus will have a more limited plan at this time, because he still has several doubts on the table.
Bas Dost and Piccini will be the two players who will try to recover from the injuries that affect them, while the absence of Gelson Martins by punishment may lead Bruno Fernandes to be an element that leaves the right track.
Above all, the case of the Dutchman may lead to a stir in strategic thinking for this game, given that Doumbia offers quite different characteristics.
Still, with William Carvalho and Mathieu on their way back, along with Coates and Rui Patrício, you should not be surprised that Sporting’s top priority is not conceded and the defensive line will have to be consistent.
Prediction Porto vs Sporting:
A match where, following what is seen in this season, should have more offensive momentum on the part of FC Porto, but with Sporting having the tie as a minimum defined, a victory will be the only result that will fuel fears founded to reach the first place.
