Since 1979, clubs have held 51 head-to-head meetings. Rio Ave triumphed in six matches, Sporting won 33 games, and 12 times the strength of opponents was on par. The hosts are holding a great season, but the Lions are not playing in the best way in this championship. As for the upcoming meeting, I do not expect goals from the teams. Bet: Under 3.0 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals scored
