Benfica vs Sporting Lisbon by Jiaho9

Benfica
VS
Sporting-Lisbon
Benfica faces Sporting in the Portuguese Supercup (Admin, please correct the competition, please).

 

This competition, in Portugal used to be played in 2 games, but since 2001 is nly 1 game in neutral field.

 

Since then, in 14 games, 10 of them ended with 2 or less goals; and when 2 of the 3 biggest teams in Portugal met (Benfica, Porto or Sporting), happend always 2 or less goals.

 

This two teams, make pre season matches against oposite teams. Benfica faced strong teams like PSG, Fiorentina and America, and show some dificulties in scoring, but show great defensive consistency. Sporting faced weaker teams like Ajax cape town, crystal palace and some weaker teams of portugal like Atlético. They also show great defensive consistency, and yesterday they face Roma without conceding any goal chance to the Italians.

 

One curiosity is that Sporting's coach is Jorge Jesus, that last 6 year was Benfica's coach.

 

I see a game with few goals. Both teams want to start the season with this tropy, and this may show us a game without many oportunities to score.

 

My pick is under 2.5 goals in this match.
