CF Os Belenenses will welcome Sporting CP to Estádio Nacional for a matchday 20 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 21st August 2021 ended in a Sporting CP 2-0 win. Both sides have met eighteen times in the most recent seasons. CF Os Belenenses has won 1 match, and Sporting CP triumphed in 14. Recent outings average 3.22 goals, while both teams score 56% of the time.
CF Os Belenenses’s latest fixture against CS Marítimo ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. CF Os Belenenses set the tone early and scored in the 13rd minute.
Sporting CP’s recent game against Sporting Braga ended in a home 1-2 loss. Leões had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Sporting CP put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 24th minute.
Since the start of the season, CF Os Belenenses is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 9 games on home soil. Although CF Os Belenenses is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
Sporting CP has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Sporting CP wins 2.44 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. CF Os Belenenses has won just 22% of home games. On average they score 0.89 goals and concede 2.22 per game. Sporting CP won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. CF Os Belenenses wins on average 0.89 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Sporting CP. My prediction is Sporting CP to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.95 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 56% of CF Os Belenenses’s home and Sporting CP’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
