Estoril vs Sporting Lisbon – Betting Analysis
There is only one player’s fitness that Estoril coach Nélson Verssimo needs to worry about out of an almost completely healthy group of players. Due to a knee injury, Lucas Frico is sidelined.
Due to an otherwise accessible group of players, Sporting Lisbon manager Rben Amorim just needs to worry about one fitness issue. Daniel Bragança is unable to play in this contest due to a ruptured Cruciate Ligament.
Estoril should have enough, in our opinion, to get past Sporting Lisbon’s defence, but one goal definitely won’t be enough to give them the outcome they desire. Our prediction is that Sporting Lisbon will win by a slim margin of 1-2 at the end of the game. awaiting this with interest.
