Sporting vs Nacional Prediction 18 March 2017

Tournament: Portuguese Primeira Division
Location: Jose Alvalade Stadium
Match date: 18.03.2017 at 17:15

On March 18 2017 at 17:15 in the regular game of the 26th matchday of the Portuguese Primeira Division at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon the local Sporting play against Nacional.

Sporting are still in the race for the places in the Champions League zone. The victory against Tondela 1:4 was the fourth one in the latest five games. We must remind you that before that the Lions drew Guimaraes and before that won against Estoril, Rio Ave and Moreirense. In general, Sporting are no longer in the race for the championship where there are Benfica and Porto.

As for Nacional, they are one of the least scoring teams of the championship and they are trying their best to stay in the elite division after the end of the current season. Even though they lost only one game in the latest five matches, the draw in the latest game prolonged third winless series to make it 12 matches long already. Moreover, Nacional are still helpless in the away matches where they only gained one point in the five matches played in the second half of the season. Moreover, they haven’t scored a single goal in those same five latest away matches played.

The statistics and the results of the latest games played between the teams show the advantage of Sporting, in fact. Anyway, in the first round game of the current season Sporting were the obvious favorites and yet they only managed to gain one point in that away match against Nacional. Yet, Sporting show totally different performance in home and away matches. That’s why we think that in the upcoming game Sporting will manage to win without conceding a single goal.
