Betting Preview: Latest Results and Roster Updates
Sporting started the season strongly, winning 9 of their first 10 league games after finishing outside the top 3 last season. Despite their solid start to the season, The Lions’ momentum recently hit a snag, losing two of their last three matches. One of their losses came at the hands of city rivals Benfica. The second was a surprise 3-2 defeat to Vitoria last weekend.
The team’s recent setback has put Porto level on points with them. Both teams now have identical records in terms of wins, losses, and draws. The only factor distinguishing them is their slight edge in goal difference. Sporting is performing moderately in the Europa League, finishing as the group’s runner-up following a 3-0 victory over Sturm. Despite their recent results, our Liga Portugal 23/24 predictions still place them as a top choice for the title.
After serving his suspension last match, Sebastian Coates is available for selection. Jeremiah St Juste and Ivan Fresneda are ruled out with injuries.

Sporting vs Porto Predictions
Porto – Draw No Bet @ 2.37 (5/4)
Bookmakers might fancy Sporting’s victory, but recent history tells a different tale. The Dragons are on an eight-game unbeaten run against Sporting, with the last five encounters ending in Porto’s favor. That run of results includes three clean-sheet victories in their last four meetings. This track record suggests Porto’s strong chances of winning or, at the very least, leaving the game with one point. Betting on Porto with this option looks promising, but in case of a draw outcome, which is very unlikely, you get a refund.
Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 2.10 (11/10)
Both teams have demonstrated exceptional attacking strength this season, each scoring over 20 goals in 13 league matches. This offensive prowess is further highlighted by the fact that in their last eight games across all competitions, both team’s games have ended with at least two goals. This pattern is also evident in their recent head-to-head encounters, with their last three league meetings exceeding three goals. Given this consistent scoring ability from both sides, we expect a lot of goals in this encounter.
Viktor Gyokeres To Score Anytime @ 2.30 (5/4)
Sporting, eager to assert dominance on their home turf in this pivotal clash, might find their ace in Viktor Gyokeres. Currently the league’s second-highest scorer with an impressive tally of 9 goals in just 12 starts. Gyokeres is in prime form, having notched his 15th goal across all competitions. His proven goal-scoring ability positions him as a critical player for Sporting, and he’s a solid bet to make his mark against Porto in this crucial encounter.
