KO: 20:30 20.08.2022, Estadio do Dragao

Sporty CP

One of the biggest games in the Portuguese Primeira Liga takes place this weekend when FC Porto host rivals Sporting CP. Both teams often engage in intense and closely fought battles, but Porto have prevailed in recent encounters and should come out on top again here.

FC Porto’s title defense got off to a good start as they won their first two games. They started with a 5-1 win over Maritimo before beating Vizela 1-0 after an injury-time effort by Ivan Marcano last weekend.

The champions have actually won three games after thrashing Tondela 3-0 in the Portuguese Super Cup. Porto’s early season form looks ominous for the rest of the league as they have now scored nine goals and conceded just one in their three games so far.

Porto have been close to perfect at home lately and were unbeaten in front of their fans last season. Sergio Conceicao’s team’s last defeat at Estadio do Dragao was a 3-2 loss to Maritimo in 2020.

Sporting CP have been the closest challengers to FC Porto’s dominance in Portugal in recent years, winning the Primeira Liga two seasons ago. They narrowly overtook the champions again last season but eventually fell behind and ended up six points off pace.

Ruben Amorim’s men are expected to put pressure on Porto again but haven’t had the best start to the season. They started with a 3-3 draw at Sporting Braga before bouncing back with a 3-0 home win against Rio Ave last time out.

Sporting CP has shown a lot of offensive quality so far with six goals in the first two games. However, three goals conceded at Sporting Braga concede a defensive weakness that could be exploited by a team like Porto.
