- Sporting Lisbon have won to nil in four of their last five matches
- Sporting Lisbon have conceded only eight league goals this season
- Nacional have netted only 11 league goals this campaign
Sporting Lisbon target top spot
Sporting Lisbon are bidding to win their first Portuguese top-flight title since 2002 this campaign and they can take another step closer with victory away to Nacional.
Sporting remain unbeaten in the league this season, winning ten and drawing two of their 12 assignments, and victory on Thursday would put them seven points clear of second-placed FC Porto, albeit after having played one game more.
They are on a five-match winning run across all competitions, having also booked their spot in the Taca da Liga semi-finals, and they can claim a routine win over Nacional, who have won only three of their 11 games this term.
Sporting’s defence has been central to their success this season and punters should back them to win in a game featuring under 3.5 goals. In terms of a correct score, we predict 2-0 – a scoreline by which they have won in two of their last four.
