Nacional vs Sporting CP Betting Tips

Sporting will be confident of maintaining their impressive, unbeaten start to the Primeira Liga season when they face Nacional on Thursday. Unbeaten through 12 matches with 10 wins, Sporting are currently sitting proudly at the Portuguese summit head, 4 points ahead of Porto's old rivals.

Since being dumped out of the Europa League in the qualifying phase by LASK, Sporting have embarked on a tremendous run of form, going 14 unbeaten in all competitions.

With 5 wins from 6 on the road, Sporting have scored at least 2 goals in every away match so far this season in the Primeira Liga and can expect another 3 points here against an opponent that has lost 3 of their last 5 league matches following their promotion to the Primeira Liga.

At home Nacional have done reasonably well so far this campaign, losing just 1 of 6 matches played at the Estádio da Madeira, and they have done well to collect 13 points from 11 games played.

Still, Sporting are in excellent fettle and should be able to notch up another win here at 1.44 odds. Adding Sporting to score 2 or more with the win brings up more generous odds of 1.7.

Past meetings reveal that Sporting has won 7 of the last 8 contests between these two sides including 2 of their last 3 trips to Madeira and that outcome seems highly likely considering their wonderful recent start to the season.

Concerning goals markets, BTTS has a chance with Nacional scoring in 5 of 6 home matches this season (9 goals scored in total) and Sporting keeping only 4 clean sheets in their last 15 away matches. However, they have been more defensively secure in recent weeks, keeping clean sheets in 4 of their last 6 wins.

Nacional vs Sporting CP Correct Score Prediction

Sporting has been really impressive this season, and they should have enough about them to record another win with a 2:1 success over Nacional.
