Since the start of the 2022/2023 season, Benfica are yet to drop a Primeira Liga point on their home ground, winning all the games they have hosted so far. On the other hand, Sporting have a slippery away run in the Primeira Liga so far, losing 3 of their last 5 matches away from home ground.

Benfica in their last 36 matches have scored a whooping 91 goals and conceded 29 times while Sporting on the other hand has scored a convincing 62 goals and conceding 34 in their last 32 matches.
Both Teams To Score
Out of their last 9 meetings at the Estádio da Luz (Lisbon) both Benfica and Sporting have found the back of the nets in 8 games. Both sides stand a good chance of repeating the feat when they meet on Sunday.
Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Benfica vs Sporting
— SL Benfica (@SLBenfica) January 11, 2023
Currently sitting at the top of the Primeira Liga, Benfica will be right if they feel top of the world now after maintaining a perfect home run in the league as they now hold onto a massive 40 points, 6 points ahead of second place Braga. The side returned to winning ways after losing the match before the last weekend’s game where they beat Portimonense 1-0 at the Estádio da Luz.
— Sporting CP English (@SportingCP_en) January 8, 2023
Struggling to maintain their balance in the top 4, Sporting are just a single point ahead of 5th placed Casa Pia who are strongly chasing into the top 4 zone. Sporting have more work to do as the wide points gap between them and 3rd placed FC Porto tells of their current form and need for improvement. The side suffered a disappointing defeat in their last encounter following a 1-0 loss to Maritimo.
With all of the last 10 matches between both sides at the Estádio da Luz ending with at least 2 goals each, we will back the Over 1.5 total goals as the safest bet to stake on this game. This selection has an odd of 1.23 on 22bet.
Please note that this bet does not guarantee that you will win 100% of the time. However, it increases your chances of winning to the greatest extent possible.
