Sporting CP vs Santa Clara prediction comes ahead of the Portuguese Primeira Liga fixture as Sporting host Santa Clara at the Jose Alvalade Stadium on Friday. Let’s take a look at the match preview as we try to provide the best betting tips and correct score prediction for this tie.

Sporting CP vs Santa Clara Betting Tips

A 7-game unbeaten run has propelled Sporting to a Europa League spot on the table. But they still have to close the gap with Benfica (9 points) to attain a Champions League spot, which looks quite improbable with only 4 games remaining to be played. They host Santa Clara on Friday who were on a good 4 game unbeaten run until they got derailed against Boavista and Maritimo in two back to back defeats recently. They are now just 10 points from the relegation zone and might just end up in the bottom-half with other teams closing on, on their 9th-place.

Sporting have beaten Santa Clara on the last 6 occasions in all competitions and scored 13 goals in this process while conceding only 2. Not only against Santa Clara, but their 7-game unbeaten home run has also taken their tally to 11 wins in 15 home games, which is second-best just to Porto, who are the champions to-be.

Though the gap in quality between these two sides is immense, Sporting actually don’t have any significant strengths which directly combat Santa Clara’s weaknesses. Both are very similar teams with prowess in direct set-pieces and creating a lot of chances through their non-aggressive possession-based style of play. A big difference though is Sporting’s efficiency in front of the goal. The Portuguese giants actually finish a majority of their chances created, while Santa Clara’s innumerable chances go to waste in the final third. This could really separate the two sides on Friday.

Sporting CP vs Santa Clara Correct Score Predictions

Considering their past meetings with Sporting and their recent performances, if Santa Clara are able to get even a single goal, they surely will raise some eyebrows in Portugal. Sporting should be able to keep a clean sheet for sure and also win this one convincingly. Sporting to win 1-0.
