The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Sporting CP vs Pacos de Ferreira PredictionSporting CP have been enjoying a stellar season so far, sitting fourth on the standings, level on points with fifth-placed Famalicao. With the likes of Famalicao, Vitoria Guimaraes and Rio Ave hot on their tails, the Lions will be looking to steer further away from the chasing pack.
Match status: 2019/20 Primeira Liga - MatchWeek 26
Kick-off:
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade (Lisbon)
Having garnered 43 points from 25 games, they are clearly one of the better sides in the league with an impeccable record of 13 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. They seem hell-bent on securing a Europa League place finish come the end of the season and are well on-course to achieving just that.

Head coach Ruben Amorim has received lots of plaudits from the fans and media alike, for the amazing work he has put in since arriving at the club. With the right tactics in place, he has got his side ticking with every player performing to their highest standards.

Meanwhile, Pacos de Ferreira have been flirting with relegation for quite sometime now and are considered huge relegation candidates. Just five points clear of 17th-placed Portimonense, the Beavers will be looking to rack up points over the coming weeks to secure top-flight survival.

Sporting CP vs Pacos de Ferreira Team News

Sporting CP were on the road to the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques on the last match-day to take on Vitoria Guimaraes in a fixture billed to go right down to the wire. You could feel pressure throughout the stadium as both teams struggled to get going early in the game.

With a top-four spot to fight for, both sides went all out for the win but ultimately had to settle for a point in a fiercely-contested affair in Guimaraes. The referee was kept busy throughout the game as he flashed a couple of yellow cards, even brandishing a red card for Guimaraes’ Amoah.

Sporar was once again the cream of the crop for Sporting CP, registering a brace to salvage a point for his side. At the sound of the final whistle, both sides headed home with a point in the bag – a fair reflection of the manner in which the game played out.

Pacos de Ferreira, on the other hand, were up against top-four hopeful Rio Ave last time out, turning in a performance of the highest quality. Expected to lose the match comfortably, Ferreira defied all odds, defeating the stubborn opposition to post all three points on the board.

It was a thrilling encounter at the Estadio do Rio Ave, a game laden with cracking goals. We do not often get to see games of this quality in the Primeira Liga; and so, made a great watch for football fans all over the world.

On paper, Sporting CP seem the stronger side and are seen as overwhelming favorites for the win. When it comes to h2h encounters, Sporting CP are on an impressive 12-game unbeaten run against this opposition. In fact, they have won their previous seven games against Ferreira on the bounce.

Also, the home side have not lost any of their preceding seven game against the Beavers on this ground with no less than three goals scored in five of those games. Apparently, the Lions have reigned supreme over this opposition over the years.

Sporting CP vs Ferreira Predictions

Although tempted to back Sporting CP for an outright win, taking an in-depth look on game analysis, this prediction could come back to haunt you. Relegation contenders often improve performance levels towards the end of the season to put forth a worthwhile survival battle.

As can be seen from Ferreira’s previous game, they upstaged Rio Ave, clinching an unexpected win to bolster their survival hopes. They will be going all out for the win again here and Sporting CP are in danger of being swept aside. The safest punt would be a double chance backing Ferreira for the win. Also, it is very possible this game ends in a low-scoring draw.
