Match Preview

The Portuguese top-flight league is off to a massive bang with Benfica set to host Sporting Lisbon at home in the Derby de Lisboa. Both teams started the new season on the right foot having recorded back-to-back wins in the games played so far. 

Boasting the same goal differences as well this season, a lot cannot be said to distinguish between the two Lisbon clubs although Benfica’s form, in contrast, puts them slightly higher than Sporting. Jose Peseiro’s men remain unbeaten in their last five outings, registering four wins and a draw in contrast to Sporting C. P. who has four wins and a loss under its belt.

A stellar showing last season also saw Benfica finish the Primeira Liga in the second position, only losing out on the trophy in a crucial decider with eventual winners FC Porto just four matches till the end of the campaign. Having recruited a few able legs to the club, they should be able to mount a stronger title challenge this time around.

Sporting, meanwhile, finished just beneath their crosstown rivals in last season’s competition. The team, however, saw the respective departure of William Carvalho, Gelson Martins and Rui Patricio, a trio who have played instrumental roles in the success of the Portuguese capital club in recent years.

With Benfica set to sideline the injured Jonas, Nicolas Castillo, Sebastien Corchia, Filip Krovinovic and Tyronne Ebuehi, the platform should just be right for Sporting to trouble the host.
