Benfica – Sporting CP, Supercup of Portugal Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BENFICA - SPORTING
Benfica participated in the International Champions Cup for 3 games, but the only top team they met for a rival was Milan. Before that they played two other friendly matches. From what the Eagles have shown can be judged to be in good shape. They sold 3 right wingers this summer and, of course, the biggest transfer was Joao Felix who went to Atletico Madrid for more than 120 million euros. After Jimenez spent 1 season in Wolves, the Wolves have now bought him permanently.
There were not that many changes to Sporting. There were no large dropouts. The Atletico striker, who did not get enough playing minutes there, Vietto, was sold to Sporting, who also attracted Camacho, a left midfielder, from Liverpool. In the friendlies, CP played in score games, not winning any of them, but each score went through BTTS + over 2.5 goals.
Expert view : We think it’s logical to bet on the champions. They have more quality and look much better. Just for comparison – they only allowed 3 goals in 5 of their friendlies, and Sporting allowed 10. In addition, Benfica attracted some strong players like Vinicius of Napoli and de Tomas of Real M. We expect the Eagles to prevail, but we are making sure with Benfica to win either half of 1.64, because of the many variants in which this bet would win.
