Vitoria Guimaraes vs Sporting CP Team News

On the road last time out to take on relegation-threatened Pacos de Ferreira, Guimaraes made sure of the three points but were made to scrap really hard for it. Touted by the bookmakers as overwhelming favorites heading into the game, the Conquerors duly delivered the win to keep up their top-four charge.

In a fiercely-contested affair at the Estadio da Mata Real, the home side laid blood and sweat bare on the pitch as they looked to stage an upset against the opposition. Throwing themselves ahead just inside ten minutes, Pacos de Ferreira could not have asked for a better start.

Managing to hold on to their lead for over 37 minutes, the floodgates soon opened with Guimaraes firing two goals in the second period to clinch maximum points. Given they had stayed ahead for large parts of the game, the hosts might have felt robbed off the three points on the day.

Sporting Lisbon, on the other hand, easily dispatched basement club Desportivo Aves to steer clear of the chasing pack behind them. Against the worst side in the league, the 2-0 home victory was nothing short of what was expected of the Lions.

To their credit, they guarded against complacency to ensure the three points were brought on board. It was a routine win for Ruben Amorim’s side, Sporar and Vietto grabbing the goals to condemn Desportivo Aves to the bottom of the table.

For this fixture, separating either of this sides are going to be a herculean task given they have been equally matched all season. The Conquerors are on a stellar three-game winning run, registering no less than two goals in each of those games.

Meanwhile, the opposing number have admitted defeat in two of their previous three league games and have remained winless in five games on the bounce. When it comes to h2h encounters, Guimaraes have the edge with three wins from their previous four clashes against this foe, including a narrow 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

Guimaraes vs Sporting CP Predictions

Five points adrift of Sporting CP, Guimaraes will be looking to secure a positive result here to gain ground on their stubborn foe. They should have enough about themselves to avoid defeat. Expect both sides to breach the other, at least once, before the end of the ninety minutes.
