Lisboa – Moreirense

Sporting Lisboa hosts Moreirense in a match from the 24th round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Let us give you our predictions football 1×2 for this clash in the capital.

Sporting are among the contenders for the title this season. Jorge Jesus’ boys do not have any other option, but to win this game. Three points against Moreirense will move Sporting back to 5 points behind the leader Porto. Right now they have 56 points and a record of 17 wins, 5 draws and one loss.

It’s not the biggest surprise that Porto, Benfica and Sporting are the team who fight for the gold medals right now. Porto are leaders and they have some advantage in front of everyone else, but there’s still enough time until the end of the season. Benfica and Sporting do not have any other choice, but to keep winning and hope that the leader will start making mistakes.

In its last game Sporting enjoyed a difficult, but important win with 2-1 over Tondela away from home. Tondela surprisingly scored first, but goals from Bas Dost and Sebastian Coates meant that Sporting are going to win this game.

During the week Sporting had a game in Europa League against Kazakhstan’s Astana. The match in Lisboa ended with a dramatic 3-3 draw, but Sporting went through because of their win in the first clash.

Meanwhile Moreirense are on the bottom of the Primeira Liga. They are 18th with just 19 points won so far and a record of 4 wins, 7 draws and 12 defeats. For them every point is going to be very important in the fight for survival. But can they win points against teams like Sporting? It’s hard to say.

These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Primeira Liga game between Moreirense and Sporting Lisboa.
