Sporting CP Preview – Can Sporting extend lead at top?

Runaway Primeira Liga leaders, Sporting CP, already hold a commanding nine-point lead at the top of the division over 2nd placed Sporting Braga but the hosts will be looking to increase the deficit to 12 points when they play host to Santa Clara on Friday night.

It’s been a remarkable campaign to date for Sporting CP in this season’s Primeira Liga as the hosts still remain undefeated so far, winning 17 and drawing four of their 21 matches to date this term and with an impressive record at home of 8-2-0 20/5, they look set to add to their points tally here.

Indeed, the bigger picture shows that Sporting CP are now unbeaten in their last 19 matches at home which includes 16 wins, 13 clean sheets and they’ve also won the previous eight meetings on the trot against Santa Clara too.

Our betting suggestion:

Santa Clara Preview – Can Santa Clara pull off upset?

Santa Clara currently sit in 7th place in the Portuguese top flight and are certainly no slouches in the Primeira Liga but the visitors will have their work cut out if they’re to get a result away at Sporting CP on Friday night.

They recorded a 3-0 home win over Pacos Ferreira last weekend but they’d previously lost their preceding two matches on the trot with losses incurred against Sporting Braga and Gil Vicente, while results away from home have been inconsistent in recent weeks.

An away record of 5-2-4 13/12 has seen Santa Clara pick up some valuable wins on the road but these have been against teams lower than them in the Primeira Liga and they face a very different prospect in the shape of Sporting CP on Friday night.
