“Lisboa derby on an hot environment.
This will be the third game this season both will play against and on last 2 previous games Sporting won final supercup and won at Benfica stadium, smashing with a 0-3 win.
This gave team a great morale advantage over Benfica and president said they cant go on field with smoking considering 3rd game is already won. Also Jorge Jesus Sporting coach (ex Benfica coach and main reason for hot polemic this season) said he knows how to put team on field to won this game. and i know he knows how todo it.
This mind games already started yesterday, with Benfica coach coming late 34 minutes to press conference.
Benfica has key player Jonas in doubt and probably only at hour game coach will take a decision. Nelson Semedo is still out and im my opinion this make right wing weacker and making less offensive solutions, and only Gaitan can create danger on left wing.
The main advantage of Sporting is on midfield sector and is the sector made Sporting won last 2 games against Benfica. With W. Carvalho and Joao Mario on this sector, they take clear advantage over Samaris and Sporting as their stricker Slimani probably on is best performance carrer, scoring and solving many games.
Taking in account all the facts and considering big rivality and home advantage for Sporting, i rate this game with Sporting with +50% to win this game and i consider this handicap line of great value for a home win.”
