Sporting Preview – Can Sporting extend lead at top?

Sporting will be in confident mood as they prepare for the visit of Rio Ave fro Friday night’s clash in the Primeira Liga at their Estádio José Alvalade, having won their last four matches on the trot with wins against Farense, Belenenses, Sporting Braga and Nacional respectively.

Indeed, Sporting still remain unbeaten so far in this season’s Primeira Liga campaign, winning 11 and drawing two of their 13 matches to date this term which has helped lift the hosts to to the top of the domestic top flight with a four-point lead over 2nd placed Porto.

Sporting will be keen to extend this lead though tonight and having won five of their six matches at home to date with a record of 5-1-0 14/4, there appears to be little reason why they can’t pick up another three points here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Rio Ave Preview – Can Rio Ave move into top half?

A resounding 3-0 win over third from bottom outfit, Portimonense, last weekend handed Rio Ave a welcome three points and in turn also ended a miserable run of six league matches without a win in the Primeira Liga which included four defeats.

Recent losses to Gil Vicente, Sporting Braga, Maritimo and Pacos Ferreira have prevented Rio Ave from lifting themselves up into the top half of the division but the win over Portimonense will have given the visitors a timely boost ahead of this tough encounter.

However, Rio Ave have lost their last three away matches on the trot, conceding a total of seven goals and failing to score in reply and this doesn’t bode well for their Friday trip to Sporting CP.
