Having fallen far behind the big three, Sporting will continue their top-four race against Vizela in the Liga NOS this Friday. The home side has won only nine times on 16 occasions, but with just two draws have displayed that they are a very entertaining side playing an open style of football often. On the other hand, Vizela too come into this game with a massive 3-0 win over Maritimo as the latter were reduced to 10 men. But, the visitors have failed to win 10 of their 16 games played, keeping them just around the midtable positions right now. Talking about their home and away forms respectively, Sporting have scored three or more goals in each of their last four home games played and have won every game without conceding a single goal too.

Sporting vs Vizela Betting Pick #1: Over 2.5 goals

Sporting have scored an average of around two goals per game and have an average of over three goals per home game this season. Even if Vizela fails to score in this game, the home side which won the league two years back should be able to get three or more goals on the board alone. We also feel that Vizela will nick one consolation goal back late in the game, but irrespective of this prediction, over 2.5 goals remain almost a certainty with a price of 1.62 to one at the time of writing.

Pick #2: Sporting CP to win & BTTS-No

One can even go for an accumulator of a Sporting CP win and Sporting CP clean sheet in this game as they have one of the best defensive records at home in the Liga NOS this season. Vizela too have struggled away from home, with just one win in four away games played and with two of these four games observing a BTTS-No situation.

Sporting CP Team News

Sporting CP have two late fitness tests to conduct ahead of Friday's game as Neto and Hidemasa Morita have recovered from their respective knee and muscle injuries respectively but are still doubtful for this clash. One certainty ahead of this game is Daniel Braganca's absence as his ligament injury has surely ruled him out from this Vizela clash, but the club reports have total uncertainty on his date of return.

Players to watch: Pedro Goncalves (8 goals and 3 assists), Pedro Porro (26 chances created this season), Manuel Ugarte (1.9 interceptions per 90 mins)

FC Vizela Team News

Vizela have no injuries or suspensions ahead of this trip to Lisbon. Manager Manuel Tulipa will not be in favour of resting captain Kiki Afonso for this game as it will reduce the leaders on the pitch, but the left-back's performances have not been up to par off late, and number 16 Matheus Pereira has been putting in better efforts in that very position lately too.

Players to watch: Samu (3 assists and 2 goals), Kiki Bondoso (24 chances created this season), Diego Rosa (1.8 interceptions per 90 mins)
