Competition: Primeira Liga
Market: Sporting Lisbon win to nil
Odds: 23/20 @ 888sport
Making their final home appearance of the season in midweek, Sporting will be looking to make a return to winning ways when Vitoria come to town on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Sporting Lisbon might have been disappointed to have seen league leaders Porto pick up a 2-0 win last time out, the Lions have continued to impress during the back end of the campaign. All but guaranteeing another year of European football for fans around the Estádio José Alvalade, Rúben Amorim’s men have lost just a single Primeira Liga contest since returning from football’s enforced break. Ending the 2019/2020 campaign with nine straight wins on home soil, there is no doubt that Amorim will be excited by his side’s eye-catching defensive displays in Lisbon. Picking up a 1-0 win against Santa Clara in their last home fixture, Tuesday’s hosts have remarkably conceded just a single strike at the Estádio José Alvalade in over 600 minutes of Primeira Liga game time.
As for the visitors, while Sporting might be cruising towards another European finish, Vitoria still find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap with just a pair of Primeira Liga contests remaining. Hit with a 2-1 defeat against Famalicão last week, Lito Vidigal’s men have lost their last six matchups on the bounce and are in the midst of a woeful winless run that stems all the way back to the 26th of January. Along with continuing to show some rather glaring issues at the back, the Green and Whites should also be concerned by their recent toothless displays away from the Estádio do Bonfim. Including what turned out to be a dreadful 1-0 defeat away at rock-bottom Aves in their last contest on the road, Vitoria have lost each of their last three straight matchups on their travels and should be in for an overwhelming test in midweek.
Bet: Sporting Libson 23/20 to beat Vitoria to nil in Tuesday’s Primeira Liga matchup @ 888sport
