  • Sporting have won each of their last five meetings with Famailcao and haven't scored more than two goals in any of those matches, while Famalicao have only failed to score in two of their last six fixtures, making a 2-1 scoreline in favour of the visitors look very appealing.
  • Viktor Gyokeres has been a goal machine for Sporting this season, netting 22 times in the Primeira Liga alone, and the Swedish striker is due a goal having failed to score in his last four outings.

Player to watch – Pote

Former Famalicao midfielder Pote is having a great season with Sporting, one that looks likely to end, with the 25-year-old lifting the Primeira Liga trophy.

Pote has been instrumental in Sporting's success this season due to his creativity and eye for goal. The ex-Wolves man has 11 assists to his name and has chipped in with a healthy nine goals so far this season, just in the league.

Pote has created the most assists for Sporting this season

We're backing Pote to put in another top performance on Tuesday night in what should be a tough game for Sporting, but we expect the Portuguese giants to come out the other end with all three points.
