Competition: Primeira Liga
Market: Sporting to win against Moreirense
Odds: 11/20 @ William Hill
Sporting Lisbon could put pressure on second-placed FC Porto with a win against Moreirense tonight. Victory for the visitors would see them six points behind a handful of games to play, solidifying their top-three finish in the process too. Sporting have been impressive this season, losing just two games from 29, but their problem has been too many draws throughout the course of the campaign.
They have played out nine stalemates, which is the sixth-most in the division. As a result, they can’t afford anything less than a win against Moreirense tonight to push for second-place, as well as ensuring they won’t be caught by fourth-placed Braga. Sporting drew against this evening’s opponents earlier in the season, so they will want revenge.
They will rue their start to the season that saw Lisbon dropping points in six of their first 10 league games. Their form since has been good enough to win the title, but they gave themselves a mountain to climb after a slow start. William Hill are giving odds of 11/20 for Sporting to win against Moreirense tonight in the league.
Bet: Sporting Lisbon 11/20 to win away to Moreirense this evening @ 11/20 with William Hill >>
