Preview:
União Madeira and Sporting CP face at Estádio da Madeira, in a match for the 14th round of the Primeira Liga. There is no recent record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams. The last head‑to‑head was played on 21‑12‑2006 and ended with the final score: União Madeira (1‑3) Sporting CP.

Analysis of União Madeira

The home team is currently in the 15th position of the league, with 11 points won, after 2 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Paços de Ferreira, by (6‑0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Benfica, by (0‑0). For the league, União Madeira won 9 points out of 21 possible points, after 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in the last 7 home matches. Their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 16 of the last 26 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. They haven't been able to score the first goal. In fact, they have only opened up the score in 2 of the last 13 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in advantage in all of those 2 matches and held on to the lead until the end of the match in all of them. They have conceded the first goal in 7 of their 13 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 10 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 3 of their 7 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

União da Madeira comes to this match motivated by a home goalless draw against champions Benfica. However, before that they suffered two heavy losses, against FC Porto and Paços de Ferreira. William Soares is the main reference of the home team, responsible for controlling the centre of the foield and coordinate the team’s defensive and offensive moves. The best scorer of the team is Danilo Dias, with only 2 goals scored, which is clear evidence of the team’s problems to create goal opportunities and score.

Confirmed Lineup: André Moreira, Paulo Monteiro, Paulinho, Diego Galo, Joãozinho, A. Shehu, Gian Martins, William Soares, Élio Martins, Amilton, J. Cádiz.
Coach: Norton de Matos.

Analysis of Sporting CP

The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 35 points won, after 11 wins and 2 draws. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Marítimo, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Moreirense, by (3‑1). In their last match, for the Taça de Portugal, they got an away loss against Sporting Braga by (4‑3), after extended time. In the last 7 away league matches Sporting CP has a record of 6 wins and 1 draw, so they have won 19 points out of 21 possible.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 7 wins in the last matches and they haven't lost any of the last 7 away matches. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and 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 12 of the last 13 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.

Sporting comes to this match disappointed, after having been eliminated from the Portuguese Cup by Braga, in an electrifying match in which they had the lead twice but allowed Braga to turn the score around in extra time. Coach Jesus will surely use the usual 4-4-2 formation, with Slimani and Gelson Martins in front. The away team usually has problems in winning at this stadium, as the head to head record shows, but this season they are stronger than usual and should win naturally.

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Paulo Oliveira, Ricardo Esgaio, Naldo, Jefferson, João Mário, Adrien Silva, F. Montero, I. Slimani, Gelson Martins, B. Ruiz.
Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals. Although the home team hasn’t got that many offensive arguments, they had a great exhibition against champions Benfica. As for Sporting, they should use this match to overcome the elimination from the Portuguese Cup. Therefore, we expect a match played at a good pace from the first minute, dominated by the away team.
