Tondela – Sporting Lisboa

Tondela welcomes Sporting Lisboa in a match from the 23th round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga. We are about to examine this game and provide you with our predictions football 1×2 for it.

Tondela are having a mediocre season so far. They are currently 11th in the Primeira Liga with 25 points and a record of 7 wins, 4 draws and 11 defeats. In their last five games they won twice, including against Pacos de Ferreira in the last round, but also suffered three defeats – against Porto, Estoril and Moreirense.

Especially dissapointing was Tondela’s loss against Moreirense, taking into account that this team is currently on the bottom of the Primeira Liga standings.

Now they will have a difficult task against one of Portugal’s greatest clubs – Sporting Lisboa.

Sporting continue the fight for the title this season. They are currently 3rd in the Primeira Liga, trailing on 5 points behind the leader Porto. Sporting are also 3 points behind the 2nd Benfica, but with a game in hand. This means that a win over Tondela will once again level up Sporting with Benfica.

Even if they can’t win the title, being 2nd is also important for Sporting. The reason is simple – this would grant them the right to qualify for the Champions League once again.

Sporting’s record this season shows us 16 wins, 5 draws and only one loss – against Estoril very recently. In their last five matches Sporting have three wins, one draw and one loss – the one we already mentioned.

It’s clear that Sporting are a heavy favourite against Tondela, even away from home. They are a much better team with much higher ambitions. If everything goes according to plan for them, Tondela shall not trouble them.

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