Preview:
Sporting CP and Porto face at Estádio José Alvalade, in a match for the 15th round of the Primeira Liga. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 1 win and 4 draws in the last 5 matches. However, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 26‑09‑2014, in a match for the Primeira Liga, they tied (1‑1). The goals of the match were scored by J. Silva (2' ), for Sporting CP, and by N. Sarr (56' Own goal), for Porto.

Analysis of Sporting CP

The home team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 35 points won, after 11 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Moreirense, by (3‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against União Madeira, by (1‑0). They come to this match after a home win against Paços de Ferreira by (3‑1). For the league, Sporting CP won 16 points out of 18 possible points, after 5 wins and 1 draw in the last 6 home matches.

They haven’t lost any of the last 6 home matches for this competition. There are a few recurrent results in their home matches: at half‑time 0‑0 (3 out of 6 matches) and after the 90' 1‑0 (3 out of 6 matches). They have presented defensive consistency, since they have only suffered goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 14 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 7 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 11 of them. In the last 13 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Sporting comes motivated after a 3-1 victory against Paços de Ferreira, for the first fixture of the group stage of the Portuguese League Cup. It's predictable that Sporting will choose the usual 4-4-2 approach, with Slimani and Gelson Martins responsible for attacking the opponent defense. It's foreseeable that the "Lions" midfield will be occupied by William Carvalho, Adrien Silva and João Mário. In the defensive line will be Jefferson, Naldo, Paulo Oliveira and João Pereira. The left flank will be more used to create danger, taking advantage from the depth offered by the lateral defender Jefferson. 

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Paulo Oliveira, João Pereira, Naldo, Jefferson, João Mário, William Carvalho, Adrien Silva, I. Slimani, B. Ruiz, Matheus Pereira.
Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Analysis of Porto

The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 36 points won, after 11 wins and 3 draws. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Nacional, by (1‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Académica, by (3‑1). In their last match, for the Taça da Liga, they got a home loss against Marítimo by (1‑3). In the last 6 away league matches Porto has a record of 4 wins and 2 draws, so they have won 14 points out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 6 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑1 (3 out of 6 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 11 of the last 14 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 8 of those 11 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 10 of them. In the last 8 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 13 goals between minutes (0'‑15').

Porto comes discouraged to this match after a 1-3 defeat, at home, against Marítimo, for the first fixture of the Portuguese League Cup group stage. Furthermore, the team will be in a good mood, once that the players of the last match won't play this match. It's foreseeable that the forwards chosen for this match by the blue and white coach will be Brahimi and Tello. Aboubakar will be the main attack reference of the visiting team. 

Confirmed Lineup: Casillas, Maicon, M. Pereira, B. Martins Indi, M. Layún, H. Herrera, Rúben Neves, Danilo Pereira, V. Aboubakar, Jesús Corona, Y. Brahimi.
Coach: José Peseiro.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is that both teams will score, at least, one goal. Both teams give more emphasis to the offensive approach, the reason to commit, easily, some faults in the defense. To note that this match will decide who will take the first place of the league table, that is to say that it's foreseeable that both teams will search to be always in advantage on the scoreboard.
