Sporting Lisbon preview: Another step towards the title?

After their disappointing elimination from Europa League by Atalanta, Sporting CP will at least try to secure a title in Primeira League where they've been at the top pretty much from the start of the season. At the moment, they are one point ahead of Benfica, but with a game in hand, so they are in a good position going forward.

The team will be without injured Hidemasa Morita and Antonio Adan for this game.

Predicted LineupIsrael – Diomande, Coates, Reis – Catamo, Hjulmand, Braganca, Quaresma – Edwards, Trincao, Gyokeres

Boavista preview: Hoping to maintain a mid-table position

While Boavista have been pretty inconsistent lately, with two wins, two draws, and two losses in their last six games in Primeira Liga, the team is sitting in the middle of the standings at the moment. That being said, Boavista are only five points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone, so there's no room for complacency.

When it comes to team news, Cesare is the only name on Boavista's injury list right now.

Predicted LineupGoncalves – Awaziem, Abascal, Onyemaechi – Malheiro, Camara, Vukotic, Ferreira – Lourenco, Agra, Bozenik

Player to watch: Viktor Gyokeres

We already suggested betting on Gyokeres to score in this match and the reason for that is simple – he is the top scorer in Liga Portugal this season with 19 goals.

Can Gyokeres score multiple goals?

Backing Gyokeres to score more than once in this match might be worthwhile since the Swedish forward already scored a brace on five previous occasions in the league.
