In their previous match, Sporting Lisbon met Boavista on Sunday and it finished in a 3:0 win at home. Currently, the team is on an unbeaten streak of seven games, recording two draws and five wins in the process.

Just two of those last 10 clashes were draws. Three out of the last five matches of the team featured over 2.5 goals, with one witnessing goals at both ends of the field. Sporting Lisbon’s defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in four of the games and they scored on their own at least once in all of those. During their last five clashes, the teams involved netted 14 goals in total.
