Primeira Liga - How to watch Sporting vs Benfica on February 1, 2021

February 1, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The clash between two of Portugal's 'Big Three' will surely attract the most attention in an action-packed day in the Portuguese top-flight.

What has been Sporting and Benfica's form ahead of this game?

Sporting has been impressive in their recent matches, as they will enter this match on an unbeaten run of 15 games in the Porttuguese top-flight. Ruben Amorim's men have won five of their last six league outings, with the only draw during that run being a minor 1-1 slip up against Rio Ave. The team's last game concluded with a two-nil win over Boavista away from home.

On the other side of the pitch, Benfica enter this match on a different kind of unbeaten run. The Eagles survived their last four games without key players due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the club, which even got to coach Jorge Jesús. With that in mind, winning only one of their last four (with threee draws in the process) does not seem like a bad deal for the red and white side.

What is Sporting and Benfica's position in the ongoing Primeira Liga season?

Sporting make it to this match as the best team in the Portuguese league, with their record showing twelve wins, three draws, and no losses. Ruben Amorim's men have scored 33 goals this season, while their defense has only conceded a league-leading nine goals. Pedro Gonçalves is the team's top scorer with 12 goals this season.

Benfica will make it to this game in third place, with their record showing ten wins, three draws, and two losses. The Eagles have found the back of the net 30 times, while the team's defense has conceded 15 goals throughout the campaign. Haris Seferovic is the team's top scorer with seven goals.
