Sporting face a scrap in midweek
Leaders Sporting will look to cement their six point advantage at the top of the Portuguese Primeira on Wednesday night, though we fancy hosts Rio Ave to earn a point.
Sporting are poorly priced at 7/10 for this clash considering they’ve drawn three of their last six starts and they also possess a dire recent record against Miguel Cardoso’s men, who have been a proverbial thorn in their side for the last two seasons or so.
The visitors are without a win in four against Vilacondenses, with the latest two meetings ending all square at 1-1.
With Rio Ave drawing six of their last eight and still scrapping for their lives at the wrong end of the standings, we’re backing a stalemate for this week’s contest at Estadio dos Arcos and we could well see another 1-1 score-line between the pair go in the ledger.
