On June 12, at 20:15 GMT, Sporting Lisbon will host Paços de Ferreira in the framework of the Portuguese Primeira Liga twenty-sixth round. Here is an expert prediction for the event by Bettonus.
This time Sporting has failed to become a solid competitor to Porto and Benfica, so they are fighting with Famalicao and Braga to win third place in the standings. In the previous round, the “Lions” played a draw with Vitoria Guimaraes with a 2:2 score. Andraz Sporar, who became a substitute for Bruno Fernandes, finally showed his worth and took a double in the match. Ruben Amorim’s team started to play confidently at home, where they won 4 games in a row.
Being an outsider team, Paços kicked three goals away in the second consecutive match. Firstly, they defeated Desportivo Aves with a 3:1 score, and then they received a victory against Rio Ave with a 3:2 score. This result leveled the “Beavers” by points with Maritimo (25). The players of Paços are in a good mood before their upcoming match: they are ready to create another sensation again.
The bookmakers’ odds for the upcoming event are as follows: Sporting — 1.39, a draw — 5.10, and Paços — 9.79. Paços de Ferreira won with the handicap of +1.5 in 14 out of the last 19 head-to-head meetings in the Primeira Liga. We recommend considering Paços’s victory with the handicap of +1.5 for 1.83. Less than 2 goals were kicked in the first half in 8 out of the previous 9 games in the championship. Bookmakers recommend placing a bet on total under 1.5 for 1.51.
