Sporting CP vs Porto – Preview

The Primeira Liga season might only be entering the fourth round but fans will already be treated to the first major showdown of the 2020/21 Portuguese top-flight campaign. On Saturday, Sporting CP will host Porto in a highly-anticipated clash on Saturday, All eyes will be on this fixture as the defending champions look to bounce back from their horrible result right before the international break.

In their most recent league fixture, the Dragons hosted Maritimo but lost 3-2 despite boasting the home advantage. Rodrigo Pinho grabbed a brace against the Portuguese giants, with Nanu scoring the third, while Pepe and Otavio scored the consolation goals for Sergio Conceicao's side. That defeat saw Porto relinquish the number one spot to bitter rivals Benfica, who boast a perfect start to the campaign, and while it is early on in the season, the defending champions will not want to lose further ground on Jorge Jesus' team.

As for Sporting, they are another team with a perfect start to the season. As a result, the Lions are level on points with their opponents despite having played one less game. They registered a lovely 2-0 win over Portimonense right before the break, with Nuno Mendes and Nuno Santos grabbing the two goals.

Benfica will be taking on a Rio Ave side that are yet to win a game. Mário Silva's side have played three games so far and have drawn in every single fixture. As a result, they sit in 13th and boast a better record over only five clubs so far. Bar a disastrous display from the Eagles, Jorge Jesus' men should win this fixture and make it four victories out of four. The fact that Sporting CP and Porto are facing off and that one – or possibly even both – will drop points is an added bonus. All of this makes for an exciting Saturday in the Portuguese top-flight season.

Team news
