A match between two historic Portuguese league teams, teams that were once national champions. Boavista won their last away game against Belenenses, where the team was very effective but, in my opinion, did not play well. Sporting suffered a surprising defeat at home against Rio Ave.
Boavista is in the fourth position with 8 points and if they win, they can reach the first place depending on the other results. It is usually a very strong team at home and this season has shown to be an extremely effective team. Despite playing poorly during this early season, they have been able to score many points more than they expected. Due to the performance that the team has been presenting, I believe that soon the negative results will appear, and they may be against Sporting. The team has shown many difficulties playing in organized attacks and has only created difficulties for opponents in counterattack or in offensive set-pieces. Possible eleven: Bracali, Tick, Neris, Lucas, Marlon, Obiora, R. Costa, Matthew, Heriberto, Bueno, and Stojiljkovic.
The team has lost its coach Marcel Keizer and so, Sporting has an extreme need to win this match because it is Sporting’s new coach’s first match and he wants to show that they have the skills and quality to stay in charge. On the other hand, players will give their all to show their new coach that they have a place in the team. I consider it a very important game for the team to win and to continue dreaming of the first places. I believe Sporting is superior to Boavista’s team, both individually and collectively. As Raphinha was transferred, the team loses speed mainly for counterattacks. Possible eleven: Renan, Rosier, Luis Neto, Mathieu, Borja, Wendel, Doumbia, Bruno Fernandes, Vietto, Luiz Phillype, and Acuña.
Due to the high individual quality, collective quality, game quality, need to win, I see value on the Sporting side. That’s why I will place a handicap bet as Sporting -0.75 at VIP-IBC; you should do it too if you join the best betting software for multiple bookmakers.
