Portugal Super Taca: How to watch Benfica vs Sporting CP live on August 4

August 2, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Sporting CP has not been at its best in preseason but it might be too late to run away from the upcoming test with last season's league winners Benfica.

What is the form of Benfica as compared to Sporting CP?

Last season's Portuguese league champions Benfica enters the Super Cup with an impressive winning run from the preseason. The Eagles have managed four successive wins and have kept three cleansheets in those encounters.

A win for the Primeira Liga holders would be a massive morale booster ahead of the new season. Bruno Lage's side are seeking to integrate new faces quickly following the departure of Eduardo Salvio and João Félix, as well as the retirement of Jonas.

On the other hand, Sporting CP will target a swift change in fortune following its disappointment in the preseason. The Lions are without a win in any of their five pre-season matches, falling against Rapperswil-Jona and Valencia, while drawing with St. Gallen, Club Brugge and Liverpool.

Although the future of skipper Bruno Fernandes remains doubtful, the team has managed to recruit a host of players capable of delivering the goods. A win against Benfica could be the prelude for better things with Sporting chasing its first league title win in 17 years.

What is the head to head record of Benfica vs Sporting CP?

The last 65 meetings between the two sides has seen Benfica leap as the superior with 30 wins under its belt. Sporting has managed 17 while there has been 18 draws between the sides.

The last encounter between the pair was in the semi-final 2nd leg of last season's Portuguese Cup. Bruno Fernandes scored the game's only goal to seal qualification to the finals for the Lions.
