Sporting CP vs Sturm Graz prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Sturm Graz to win or draw

  • Sporting will finish second regardless of the last-round results in the group.
  • Sturm Graz can secure a spot in the Europa Conference league with a win and they are in good form with three wins in their last five games.

On top of this, Sporting will meet with Porto over the weekend in Primeira Liga, which is another reason why they will likely shuffle their team for this match and take it easy, hence a double chance on the guests is one of our top Sporting CP vs Sturm Graz betting tips.

Sporting CP vs Sturm Graz team news

Sporting CP

Regardless of the result, Sporting CP will finish in second place in the group, which will take them to the Round of 32 of the competition. Given that they have a derby with Porto awaiting them in the Portuguese championship, as the two teams sit tied at the top of the league, we will likely see their key players rested in this game.

In addition to this, Ivan Fresneda, Jeremiah St Juste, and Daniel Braganca will miss this match due to injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Israel – Quaresma, Neto, Reis – Esgaio, Essugo, Hjulmand, Santos – Catamo, Paulinho, Trincao

Sturm Graz

While Sturm Graz have been in solid form recently, especially in their domestic championship, where they are currently just two points behind Salzburg in the standings. Their loss in the last round of the Europa League put their spot in Europa Conference League at risk as they are now tied with Rakow ahead of the last round.

When it comes to team news, Gregory Wuthrich is on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Predicted Lineup: Scherpen – Gazibegovic, Lavalee, Affengruber, Schnegg – Prass, Kiteishvili, Gorenc-Stankovic, Horvat – Jatta, Sarkaria

Confirmed Sporting CP vs Sturm Graz lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch: Manprit Sarkaria

With three goals and three assists in the Austrian Bundesliga this season, Sarkaria has contributed to Sturm's success in the league and keeping up with Salzburg. The 27-year-old hasn't done much in the Europa League so far, but he could improve that impression against Sporting.
