Nacional Sporting CP betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

Motivated by their excellent form, Sporting should try to enter this match quite strongly, where they will be able to dominate ball possession and offensive initiative most of the time. Still, the gaps that Amorim's team has shown in the defensive process should provide Nacional with the opportunity to create some dangerous plays, not least because the Madeirans have some quality in the way they reach the opponent's goal. Therefore, we foresse a match where the two teams create good opportunities to celebrate.

Nacional and Sporting CP face at Estádio da Madeira, in a match for the 13th round of the Primeira Liga. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins and 1 draw in the last 3 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 19‑04‑2019, in a match for the Primeira Liga, Sporting CP won by (0‑1). The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Nacional presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis Nacional

The home team is currently in the 10th position of the league, with 13 points won, after 3 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Porto, by (2‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Tondela, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 12 conceded. In the last 6 home league matches Nacional has a record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 9 points out of 18 possible. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 11 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 12 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

The Nacional da Madeira team has had a relatively balanced campaign in this return to the Portuguese football elite. At the start of the 13th round of the Liga NOS, the team led by coach Luís Freire totals 13 points, like Moreirense and Gil Vicente, and currently occupies the 9th position in the leaderboard, just one point behind Santa Clara and Marítimo, who even have one more game played. This is because, last weekend, Nacional saw their match at Vitória de Guimarães postponed. Thus, the last time they entered the field was a week and a half ago, with Nacional defeating Tondela, 2-0, for the championship, after the triumph against Leixões (3-1), in the Portuguese Cup.

Confirmed Lineup: Daniel, João Vigário, Lucas Kal, Julio, Rúben Freitas, Larry Azouni, Rúben Micael, Bryan Rochez, Nuno Borges, João Camacho, Brayan Riascos.
Coach: Luís Freire.

Analysis Sporting CP

The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 32 points won, after 10 wins and 2 draws. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Belenenses, by (1‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Sporting Braga, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 31 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 29 goals scored and 11 conceded.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 6 away matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 17 of the last 19 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 10 of the last 12 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 6 of those 10 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 8 of them.

Sporting has walked step by step in a season where they do not publicly assume themselves as candidates for the title, but where they have been, after 12 rounds, the best team in the Liga NOS. The leadership that Rúben Amorim's team occupies, with 32 points, four more than rivals FC Porto and Benfica, is illustrative. After winning in the visit to Belenenses (1-2) with some difficulty in the mix, the green-and-white team reached their fifth consecutive victory last Saturday, entering with the right foot in the new calendar year. In the reception to the always challenging Braga, Sporting had some "luck" with the opportunities wasted by the Minho team, but proved to be more effective in the last third of the field and ended up winning by 2-0, with goals by the inevitable Pedro Gonçalves (54') and young midfielder Matheus Nunes (78').

Confirmed Lineup: Adán, Zouhair Feddal, Luís Neto, Sebastián Coates, Pote, Pedro Porro, João Mário, João Palhinha, Nuno Santos, Andraž Šporar, Nuno Mendes.
Coach: Ruben Amorim.
