New Entrants Challenge the Dominant Force

Key Stats
– Sporting Lisbon remain unbeaten in their last 11 league away matches.
– Every home game for Farense since their promotion has witnessed at least three goals.
– Both teams have found the net in four out of Sporting’s previous six Primeira Liga away fixtures.

As the seventh round of Primeira Liga action approaches, fresh entrants SC Farense prepare to face off against the dominant Sporting Lisbon at their home ground, Estadio de Sao Luis. While Sporting Lisbon are comfortably seated at the top, the newly promoted Farense have shown glimpses of promise and resilience.

Farense’s Promising Return

Having returned to the top tier of Portuguese football after a two-year hiatus, SC Farense have demonstrated respectable mettle in their play. With 6 games under their belt in the 2023-24 season, the rollercoaster journey has been evident. From the 18 teams in contention, Farense, under the leadership of Jose Mota, have managed to surpass seven, claiming two victories from their six outings.

More encouraging for the Farense faithful is the fact that both their wins have come at home, sparking optimism of another surprise against Sporting. After all, Mota’s men had recently taken down fourth-placed Sporting Braga with a convincing 3-1 scoreline, signifying their capabilities.

Sporting Lisbon’s Impeccable Run

Ruben Amorim’s Sporting Lisbon has been nothing short of sensational. With five wins and a single draw at Braga, their start has been rivaled only by FC Porto. They’ve not only been prolific in front of the goal, netting an average of two per match, but have also showcased an iron-clad defence, having conceded a mere four goals so far. The real challenge, however, is replicating their home form, predominantly displayed at Estadio Jose Alvalade, in away games.

Key Players and Tactics

Unfortunately for Farense, Jhon Velasquez will be missing the crucial clash. The team is likely to deploy either a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 formation. Meanwhile, Sporting’s Amorim has a decision to make upfront, with both Paulinho and Viktor Gyokeres in fine form, having scored five and three goals, respectively.

On the player rating front, for Farense, Mohamed Belloumi stands out with a BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.30, closely followed by Mattheus and Artur Jorge. Sporting’s Viktor Gyökeres has been exceptional, boasting an 8.00 rating, and Paulinho trails not far behind with 7.52.


1. Match Outcome: Given the data, Sporting seems to be the favourite. However, considering Farense’s formidable home form, a draw might be on the cards. Thus, my prediction for the match outcome market would be a draw.

2. Correct Score Prediction: Analysing both teams’ form and defensive abilities, a scoreline prediction of 2-2 seems apt, considering Farense’s ability to shock the big teams at home and Sporting’s scoring prowess.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Given his stellar form, Paulinho from Sporting Lisbon is likely to find the back of the net.

4. Corner Prediction: Both teams have an almost identical corners per game ratio, with Farense at 5 and Sporting at 5.8. Predicting a competitive match, we might see a total of 11 corners in the game, with Sporting taking a slight edge.
