Liga Portugal: Santa Clara - Sporting

31 Aug 2021
07.01.22 - 19:30 CET

In the seventeenth round of Portugal's top competition, Santa Clara, currently in fifteenth place in the table, will play Sporting, who share first place with FC Porto.

Santa Clara has a score of two wins, two losses and one draw in their last five league games. Their last match was a 1-2 loss against Ferreira. In the game before that, they managed a 1-0 win against eighth-placed Guimaraes. They are in very good form at the moment, considering that they have won only three times out of sixteen matches, two of which were in their last four games. Santa Clara have the worst defence in the league, receiving an average of 2 goals per game. Defender Rafael Ramos, who has played 14 league games, will not take part in this match due to a red card he received in the 89th minute. The coach will also miss defender Mikel Villanueva, who has played the last five games in the starting lineup.

Sporting has 14 wins, two draws and no losses in the league. They also have the best defence in the league, having conceded only seven goals in 16 league games. In their last league game, they won 3-2 against sixth-placed Portimonense. They were surprisingly 0-1 down after the first half, but after a Portimonense player was red-carded in the 57th minute, striker Paulinho scored a hat-trick. Sporting have quite a few injured players, anyway these are long term injuries. Compared to the last game, the team will now only be missing striker Goncalo Inacio, who scored three goals in twelve league games.

In this game I believe in a win for Sporting, who have a score of six wins and one draw in away games and a score of 14:4. Against the worst defence in the league, I believe they will win by a difference of at least two goals. Santa Clara have managed to score at least one goal in their last five games, but they will have a tough time against the league's best defense.

Asian Handicap: Sporting -1.0 @ 1.72 (bet365)
