Taça de Portugal Final: Watch Sporting vs Porto on May 25, 2019

May 23, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Porto and Sporting lock horns in a second title clash in the 2018-19 season. Follow this game with our detailed guide.

How do Porto and Sporting get to this game?

Porto makes it to this game on a five-game streak without a loss. Their last defeat came at the hands of Liverpool, who breezed past them with a 4-1 win to eliminate the Portuguese side from the UEFA Champions League. Three of those five games have ended in a win, but their only draw was rather costly for Conceicao's side, since their 2-2 draw against Rio Ave ended up being crucial for them to lose the Primeira Liga title.

Sporting enters this game having lost their last Primeira Liga clash: a 2-1 loss against Porto last week. Prior to that, the Lions had won four out of five, with their draw against Tondela being the only stain on their record. Marcel Kaizer's men had one of the highest scoring games of the Primeira Liga during that aforementioned run, when they defeated Belenenses with a whopping 8-1 score.
