With the two teams unbeaten in their last five league games, all eyes will be on the Portuguese Primeira Liga derby between Porto and Sporting Lisbon at the Estadio do Dragao in the 20th round of the Portuguese Liga NOS.
Porto Fighting For the Top Spot
The hosts are only one point from the top of the league table after Benfica lost in their last round. The team will need to put in a strong performance here to climb up the table. Porto have collected a total of 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Primeira Liga. Their last league match was against Estoril Praia away from home where they won 2-1.
Porto are currently sitting in the 2nd place in the league table. They have 44 points from 13 wins, 5 draws and 1 losses. The team scored 37 goals and conceded 10 since the start of the season.
Brahimi was Porto’s game changer last week, will likely start here. Ruben Neves is still out.
The Visitors Need To Keep Their Good Form
The hosts are also in a strong form as they are unbeaten in their last five league games. Sporting have dropped many points since the start of the season which saw them drop a little below in the league table. Sporting CP have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Primeira Liga. Their last league match was against Pacos de Ferreira at home where they won 4-2.
Sporting CP are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 38 points from 11 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 35 goals and conceded 20 since the start of the season.
Sporting can welcome back Sebastián Coates from suspension but William Carvalho’s absence is a huge blow and he will be replaced in the team by Joao Palhinha.
Head To Head
Sporting CP have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in August 2016 when the final score was 2 – 1 to Sporting at home.
