Sporting CP have won 5 and drawn 2 of their 7 home league games played, and sit Top of the Portuguese Primeira Liga with 39 points, winning their last league game played 0-2 away against Boavista. Benfica have won 4 drawn 2 and lost 1 of their 7 away league games played, and sit 3rd in the Portuguese Primeira Liga with 33 points, drawing their last league game played 1-1 at home against Nacional. Benfica won the last meeting 2-1 at home in Aug last year, and have won the last 3 head to heads against Sporting CP. But this year is different.


League leaders Sporting are unbeaten in 15 league games this season winning five and drawing two oftheir home games. Benfica have dropped points in three of their last four league matches and in three of their last four away games. 

Sporting has had major problems beating Benfica in recent years. In fact, they only have one win against Benfica in the last ten full-time matches. Also won one who finished cross which was then decided in overtime. So 2/10 we can also say. In other words, Benfica has an advantage when it comes to mutual meetings. But it must also be said that several of these meetings have ended in a draw. However, Sporting is stronger now than in a long time.

They have win their last 9/10 home matches with nine wins and a cross while Benfica has a win in the last four. Not very dangerous, but Benfica usually line up a lot of wins. In addition, Benfica has had a lot of players away due to COVID. Some are certainly back, and others are not.

"Sporting are still unbeaten in the league. However, they have lost their last three meetings against Benfica. The visitors have drawn their past two away league matches."

Regardless of whether you are back, it is not certain that some of them will start, or perform particularly well. We have several examples of this around Europe. It is not always easy to go on the virus and jump on the plane and perform immediately. So Sporting clearly has a small advantage there. I play Sporting money back in case of a draw. Note that Sporting has not lost a single league match this season. 15 matches without a loss and I see that you go another match without losing. We win at home win, ie and the money back if the match ends in a draw
