  • Competition: Taca de Portugal

  • Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisbon - Oeiras)

In the top Portuguese football, there is only one game to be played this season - the Taca de Portugal final between Porto and Sporting. Sporting, or Os Leões, as they often call them in Portugal, won the Liga Portugal title this season with a commanding ten points more than Benfica and an enormous 18 points ahead of Porto. Now, Sporting CP will try to win their 18th cup in history, while Porto have a chance of winning their 20th cup trophy. 

Every season without a title is unsuccessful for Porto. In the league, they finished third, so a potential cup trophy could help Porto to lick their wounds. Sergio Conceicao's team won five of the last six matches. Last weekend, Porto won 1-0 on the road against Braga. The home team's Victor Perea Gomez got two yellow cards in the first 12 minutes, so Porto dominated the rest of the game. Buoyed by their recent successes, Porto's morale is soaring as they head into the cup final against Sporting CP at Estadio Nacional do Jamor. With the opportunity to clinch silverware on the horizon, Porto's players are undoubtedly eager to seize the moment and salvage their season with a trophy.

For Sporting CP, the 2023/24 season was among the best in their history. They dominantly won the league title and now have the chance for another cup trophy. Sporting CP have won seven of the last eight matches. In the previous game, they won 3-0 at home against Chaves. In that match, the home side almost doubled their opponent's xG, so it is no wonder Sporting CP secured another victory. 

Porto vs Sporting CP pick: Both teams to score - yes

Porto scored at least one goal in each of the last nine matches. On the other hand, Sporting CP scored at least one goal in each of the previous 23 games. Both teams to score - yes should be the best bet for this tie.
