After a comfortable 3-1 win in the first leg in Switzerland, Sporting will be looking to finish the job on Thursday night in front of their home fans.

Sporting have made a great start to the 2023-24 season, and almost the same can be said in Europe. Rúben Amorim's men did finish second in Europa League Group D but they were separated from group winners Atanlanta by just three points.

Young Boys meanwhile were awarded a Champions League place after winning the Swiss Super League once again but were unable to capitalise on it. They missed out on automatic qualification for the knockout rounds after finishing third and look set to be eliminated from Europe completely unless they turn things around in Portugal.

Sporting CP vs BSC Young Boys Betting Tips: Home win and Over 2.5 goals

It's hard to believe Sporting won't come away victorious again given how well they've played at home this season. Rúben Amorim's side enter Thursday's game with a 12-game home winning streak in all competitions and scored at least three goals in nine of those contests.

Young Boys' defence has also been a problem in Europe this season. The Swiss outfit finished the Champions League group stage with just one clean sheet and conceded three goals against Sporting. Only one of their seven matches in Europe this season has ended with fewer than 2.5 goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Sporting CP vs BSC Young Boys prediction: 3-1

Jerry St. Juste will once again be unavailable to Sporting head coach Rúben Amorim due to a foot injury and Paulinho has also missed the last two games due to an injury.
