Sporting CP vs FC Porto prediction on September 11, 2021. Right from the 5th round, the audience in Portugal has witnessed the heroic battle between the defending champion and the runner-up of last season, Sporting Lisbon and Porto. With relatively balanced strength and performance, this is clearly an extremely unpredictable matchup.
Sporting CP Overview
Sporting CP played very successfully last season. They were able to overthrow the dominance of two giants in Portugal, Benfica, and Porto, for many years to win the championship for themselves.
They are playing quite well this season when through the first 4 matches, the host has not received a single defeat for themselves. After the first 4 matches, they have 3 wins and 1 draw to help them have 3rd place in the rankings, only 2 points behind the top team. The next match has to face a strong team, Porto, but with confidence, a victory is not too much for the host.
FC Porto Overview
Porto is on the way to regain their throne when this team was unable to defend the championship last season. The visitors have had an impressive start in the Portuguese league this season with 4 consecutive unbeaten matches with 3 wins to help them get there.
This has helped the visitors get 2nd place in the rankings. The goal is to be at the top of the table, so they need to play harder in the next match. That is quite detrimental to the away team when many of the team’s pillars have had to play for the national team recently, making their fitness reduced. So the next round is difficult for the away team to get a good result for themselves.
Asian Bet – Sporting CP vs FC Porto prediction
Porto is almost similar to Sporting in all statistics this season. Both teams have 3 wins, 1 draw, even equal in the number of goals and the number of goals conceded.
However, the coach’s men suffered a large loss in this match when they lost two pillars, goalkeeper Marchesin and midfielder Grujic, due to different injuries. Porto’s recent away form is not too good when it was held to a draw 3/5 times in the last time. Therefore, it is not surprising that the home team of the Estadio do Dragão will face many disadvantages in this confrontation.
