Match status: 2019-20 Primeira Liga - Matchweek 15
Kick-off:
Venue: José Alvalade (Lisbon)

Both sides have established themselves as two of the three giant footballing clubs in Portugal, the elite list completed by the outstanding Benfica.

This term, the visitors have fared much better than Sporting CP, as reflected by the league's standings. Sergio Conceicao's men sit comfortably in second place, a whopping nine points clear of Sporting in third.

As long-term rivals FC Porto come around town on Sunday, the Lions will have their work cut-out in a bid to secure a win to close down the gap on the visitors.

Sporting vs FC Porto Team News

Sporting made light work of lowly Santa Clara on the last match-day firing four unanswered goals past their sorry opponents to post all three points on the board. It was really a stroll in the park for Silas' men as they did not even have to break a sweat to clinch maximum points against Santa Clara.

The huge win was widely regarded as a routine for the Lions as they showed dominance from start to finish to secure victory over their lowly opposition.

They followed that victory up with an impressive 4-2 victory over minnows Portimonense in the Portugal League Cup. Impressively, the hosts have admitted defeat just twice in their previous six games across all competitions.

It is also worth noting that the home side have admitted defeat on just four occasions this season. They are currently placed third on the standings, nine points adrift of high-flying FC Porto.

FC Porto, on the other hand, have been on cloud-9 this season, rising up to the occasion of challenging Befinca for the Primeira Liga title. They are currently on a ten-game unbeaten run in the league and have dropped just two points in the process.

Also, they are currently spotting an incredulous four-match winning streak across all competitions, the most recent of which was a comfortable 4-2 win over Portuguese minnows Chaves in the League Cup.

To pile on the misery for Sporting CP, the Dragons are the second-best away side in the league, having not lost a single game since the shocking 2-1 defeat at the hands of Gil Vincente in September.

Sporting CP, in sharp contrast, have lost two of their last five games on this ground. They have simply not been as impressive as FC Porto so far this season.

Given the scintillating form that the visiting contingent are on, the win is more likely to swing in their favour this Sunday.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Sporting CP: Luís Neto, Yannick Bolasie.

FC Porto: No missing players.
