Sporting vs Benfica Prediction 17 January 2020

Tournament: Portuguese Primeira Liga
Location: Estadio Jose Alvalade
Match date: 17.01.2019 at 21:15

On January 17 2020 at 21:15 at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in the upcoming main game of the 17th game week of the Portuguese national elite divison Primeira Liga the local Sporting are going to play against their guests Benfica.

Sporting have been rather unstable this winter as they outplayed Moreirense, Santa Clara and Setubal and lost to Guil Vicente and Porto. Anyway, the Lions are still among the leaders of the championship as they have 29 points gained and 28:18 goal difference which let them take the fourth position in the standings.

In the second round of the championship Benfica lost to Porto at home while after that they showed an incredible winning series which is already 14 matches long. Not long ago the Eagles outplayed Aves, Guimaraes, Famalicao, Boavista and Maritimo. Their current first position with 45 points gained and 40:6 goal difference seems really deserved for that reason.

The Lisbon derbies are always really competitive and the results of those matches are always extremely hard to predict. Sporting will have the support of the domestic fans and yet we think that Benfica will have an advantage as they have already forgotten how to lose. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that Benfica will be able to gain at least one point in the upcoming match.
